Coming to this , in addition to walking around the Hoi An old town, you have the opportunity to participate in lantern-making classes. Hoi An has long been famous as the city of lanterns. To feel more deeply about the cultural beauty of the old town, you can learn and make your own lamp. A lantern-making class costs more than 200,000 VND/person.

If you have time, you can choose the full steps of this class. With the full class, you’ll start by attaching, shaping the small bamboo sticks to create the lantern. If you want to save time to experience other things, you can look to accelerated classes. The accelerated classes will skip a few steps and you go to the stage of choosing silk colors, applying glue, and attaching tassels to the lantern… The short lesson is chosen a lot because it is suitable for many people’s abilities.

These courses attract a large number of foreign visitors. However, many Vietnamese people also love this experience, especially families with young children living in the city, rarely exposed to rural traditional things. Those who used to be in the countryside living in the city also feel like returning to their childhood when participating in lantern-making classes.

Each course usually lasts 3 hours. Then you’ll have a relatively nice finished product to gift for this fun experience.

Continue the activity of the first one of 3 days in Hoi An, the car will take you to Tra Que vegetable village, a peaceful village with organic farming methods to produce the most delicious vegetables.

Not only sightseeing, but you can also participate in interesting activities in this place, including having lunch, or learning to cook food.

It’s great if you take the time to taste a glass of local drink or a cup of local beer Lager, sit down and enjoy the view and breathe in the fresh air.

The time spent in the vegetable village is from 1 to 2 hours if you don’t learn to cook, and you will end the day at the hotel.

  • Explore Hai Van Pass (Sea-cloud Pass)

Hoi An is about 55 km from Hai Van Pass. With charming natural beauty, today you have a chance to conquer this most beautiful pass in Vietnam.

The car will take you through Da Nang to Hai Van pass. You will be immersed in a beautiful picture of nature with one half of the mountain, the other side is the sea. In 2015, Hai Van Pass was included in the list of 10 most beautiful coastal roads in the world by the Guardian newspaper.

From Hoi An, it will take you about 1.5 hours to reach the top of the pass. This site will open up to the vast sky and sea, covered with a deep blue color.

It is great if you travel on clear and sunny days. On the contrary, you will encounter the clouds floating on the peak, and the monuments on the pass with the fresh air, which will bring a refreshing feeling of the mountain scene.

It is impossible to miss the ancient gate, called Hai Van Gate, once known as De Nhat Hung Quan (The Most Great Gate). With the dome design, built of bricks in 1826 under the reign of King Gia Long (1820 – 1842), the gate will give you beautiful and strange classical photos.

Besides, the bunkers are also a highlight not to be missed. They are historical evidence dating back to the French period and the Vietnam War. The picture with historical evidence covering the mountain scenery will create a pretty background.

Do not forget to taste a cup of Vietnamese coffee and admire the scenery of the mountains, the sea, the clouds. Vietnamdrive likes to call it “Coffee in the clouds”.

After about 45 minutes to 1 hour of exploring this area, the car will slowly take you to admire the lovely scenery like a sleeping fairy, Lang Co Bay. Don’t miss having beautiful photos here.

You will stop at Lap An lagoon, where you will relax and admire the peaceful and beautiful scenery. Sometimes young couples come here to take wedding photos.

And it is the time when you can enjoy seafood for an optional meal. There are two suggestions for you to choose from:

  • One is Thanh Tam restaurant located on the side of Lang Co beach with professional services, often serving domestic and foreign tourists.
  • The second option is the restaurant on Lap An lagoon. The scenery is beautiful, but the service style and hygiene are not as good as the restaurant above. It’s because they often serve local guests and Vietnamese tourists. But the food has quite interesting flavors.

After resting, the car will take you through the Hai Van tunnel – a road tunnel more than 6km long through the mountain – to return to the hotel and rest.

The total time for this trip is estimated from 4 to 5 hours.

Day 3Visit the statue of the heroine and the mural village, have fun at Vinwonders Hoi An

  • Visit Mother Thu Statue, which becomes the heroine in life
  • Explore the mural village, Tan Thanh
  • Spend time with fun activities in Vinwonders Hoi An

If on the second day, you move north of Hoi An to Hai Van, then on the third day belonging to a 3-days tour program in Hoi An, the car will take you south to interesting attractions.

After you move on the road through the fields and unspoiled sand, the first stop is the statue of Mother Thu. This monument is the result of the local people’s respect for the mother who lost her children in the wars to protect the country. It is also showing respect for women in general in the spiritual life of Vietnamese people, which is a prominent cultural feature in Vietnam.

Next, you will move to the mural village Tan Thanh, where artists with the contribution of Korean friends have turned a messy rural village into a lovely site. The vivid colors and images on the walls, the tools of labor make a difference to the countryside scene.

The driver will bring you back to the famous amusement park in Hoi An, Vinwonders Hoi An. You will explore and have fun with many new games. Vinwonders Hoi An is an exciting destination if you travel with a family with children. All will have fun together.
