You can take part in “bai choi,” a traditional game, at a big yard near the An Hoi Bridge, and purchase a card and listen to the game master singing a folk song. The song ends with the name of a card and if you have that card, you will win the game and receive a gift.

Bach Dang Street at night is dubbed “Vietnam’s Venice”. This is the lowest area in Hoi An so the road there is flooded every night.

Hoi An is very beautiful at night. Perhaps it is the most beautiful when all stores close and there are no tourists, but you would then have to be on the streets at 1-2am.
