Seasons

Tip: If possible, time your visit to Hoi An for the Full Moon festival, which takes place on the 14th day of the lunar year each month. The town becomes a stage for traditional songs, dancing, games and food, with a candlelight lantern procession that makes its way through the Old Town and along the riverfront.

Note: Avoid travel during Tet (Vietnamese New Year). The country’s biggest festival is held in late-January and early-February, when the Vietnamese return to their ancestral family home. Transport and hotels are completely booked and the roadways are crammed with traffic. Most businesses close down.
