Hoi An – a taste of history

There are no surprises that it’s raining again today, so we venture out in what appears to be a break in the weather and take our chances.


At the Fukian Assembly Hall, lantern-like structures hang with blessings inside them, all of them burning at once. It is only when you look closely that you realise they are mosquito coils.


The rain returns and rushes down the roof tiles into the open spaces of the hall.


A damp walk to find some refreshments under cover before another opportunity arises to walk without becoming saturated.


We visit the Hoi An Folkore House down near the river and get a few more insights into the trading port that operated between the 15th and 19th centuries.
