It feels like a while since I did a proper travel photo diary, and I couldn't be happier to look back 
on the photos from one of my favourite towns we stopped in during our time in Vietnam: Hoi An.

Hoi An itself feels totally different to a lot of Vietnam, calmer. I think it's due to the fact that 
the Ancient Town - a perfect example of French Colonial architecture - has survived, and entering
 it feels like entering another world, almost like you've gone back in time. Famous for it's tailors,
 we wandered around all day in and out of cafes, the boys having to go back and forth to fittings
 for the suits they were having made, (I'm now regretting not getting something made!) and it's 
 the kind of place that makes me smile now when I think about it, which for me means it 
was incredible and someday I hope to go back. 

We were also lucky enough to be there during the monthly festival of light, where the whole of 
the Ancient town turns off every light and only candle light is allowed, with everyone lighting 
lanterns to drops into the canal. Magical.
