Wanders in Hoi An, Vietnam

Now that I am done with editing the pictures from my trip in Vietnam, let's share them with you... It was a pretty short trip (4 days) and travelling with two young kids have proved to be quite exhausting... but Hoi An is a real gem and it was well worth the burden! I have been absolutely stunned by the bold colors used for the buildings, interiors, clothing and other accessories.

 


I am fond of the bold colors Vietnamese people seems to favor for painting their walls. The pictures above were taken in the Moon Restaurant and Lounge, a gorgeous little place decorated with taste.

I had been impressed in Thailand by the craftsmanship and the obvious talent of Thais for design, but Vietnamese are as good!
Are these walls and furnitures inspiring you or do you usually opt for lower key hues?


Here are three addresses not to miss in Hoi An if you like Vietnamese food:
Moon Restaurant and Lounge
321 Nguyen Duy Hieu, Hoi An, Vietnam
(+84 510) 2241 396

Morning Glory (my favorite place in Hoi An)
106 Nguyen Thai Hoc St., Hoi An, Vietnam
(+84 510) 2241 555

The Light House
Cam Nam island, Hoi An, Vietnam
(+84 510) 2241 503


Vietnam is also renowned for its tailoring skills. We have tried Yali Couture which was recommended to us and haven't been disappointed:
Yaly Couture
47 Tran Phu St., Hoi An, Vietnam
(+84 510) 2222 580
ask for Gloria

I loved Hoi An, too!!!! We just got home from our trip. I wish I thought of coming to this post to check where you liked. I was wondering about Moon restaurant and Morning Glory, but we went to different places. Maybe next time. I would love to go back to Hoi An. There are so many places to see in Hoi An!! I agree with you that it was very colorful.
