Chinese Lanterns at the Full Moon Festival at Hoi An, Vietnam. On the 14th day of every Lunar month, the Unesco World Heritage Site of Hoi An has a full moon festival. Electricity is switched off and the town is lit by candle light and chinese lanterns. It is a fantastic spectacle, which based on the unbelievable busyness, it would appear the entire town come out to enjoy. The excitable atmosphere, traditional games of Bai Choi (like Bingo) and endless enormous chinese lanterns make for a brillant evening. As the full moon celebrations continue long into the night, the Thu Bon River and harbour area of Hoi An become a flowing river of candles, which people release in order to bring good luck. If you are travelling to Vietnam, it is definitely worth trying to coincide your stay at Hoi An with the full moon festival.
