Hi, I’m planning a trip to Hoi An with my girlfriend. Could you please tell me what’s the best time to visit the town?
The best time to visit Hoi An is from February to April, when the weather is most pleasant with gentle sunshine and only a little light rain sometimes.
We also recommend being in the city for the 14th day of a lunar month, as at this time the houses and streets of Hoi An are lit by hand-crafted and colourful lanterns, replacing the regular electric lighting. This warm light gives the town a very romantic air, and due to the lack of traffic it’s also a great walking spot for couples. Many traditional performances also take place along the river during this time, usually at night-time.
