Hội An Boats at Night

These brightly coloured boats are just some of the many craft that ply their trade up and down the river in Hoi An. 

At nighttime the old centre of Hoi An is transformed into a fantastic world of lights and colours. We strolled along the riverside street as the silk lanterns of every colour of the rainbow lit up the frontages of the restaurants and little shops.

These boats, made a tempting photograph and I am afraid I resorted to the use of my phone, for although I still prefer the camera, the new phone is the only thing I have ever owned that takes clear night shots, and without a tripod too!

The whole effect was like being in some huge blockbuster movie set where the brief was to create the perfect interpretation of “Exotic Asia”.
