Don yourself in beautiful traditional Ao Dai and go around the city precinct of Hoi An as you explore the many cultural heritage and historical landmarks around the quaint cityscape
Today you will be visiting Hoi An for a photography tour. This beautiful town combines parts of Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese into one unique culture that is Hoi An. As you explore the rich town of Hoi An, you will see that it is a place with longstanding history, and peaceful solitude. Once you are picked up from your hotel, you will head straight to Hoi An. On the way there, there are 2 tour options that you can consider: if you want to enjoy the morning sunshine and some quiet place on your own, you can choose the tour that runs from 8 A.M. to 12 P.M. But if you prefer an evening tour, you can go with the 2 P.M. - 7 P.M. evening tour.
You will start the tour by visiting a studio and find some “Ao Dai” (a Vietnamese traditional dress). Ao Dai has become a unique symbol for all Vietnamese women and is considered one of Vietnam’s most iconic attire. The modern Ao dai we see today is tight-fitting, which accentuates and flatters a woman’s curves. This gives rise to the saying that Ao dai seems to cover everything but hide nothing, especially when it is made of thin or see-through fabric. Unlike many other traditional costumes, Ao dai still remain popular and influential even in modern Vietnamese culture. Although Ao dai is no longer worn by men nor women on a daily basis, they are still widely used for special occasions. Ao dai is still women’s favourite dress when it involves traditional festivities or occasions such as Tet, wedding or graduation. In some high schools and universities in Vietnam, the white Ao Dai is used as a school uniform for female students.
Once you find that your preferred Ao Dai, you will go to Hoi An old town and start shooting your cameras. You will see that the streets are full of ancient houses, small alleys, and cosy cafes all available for you to take pictures of. The centre of Hoi An is very small and pedestrianised, so you will be walking around most of the time. Despite being pedestrianised, motorbikes are only banned from the centre of town during certain times of day, so keep an eye out for them as you make your way around. Evenings are especially busy so always keep your guards up for any passing motorbike.
Explore and snap your cameras away with your beautiful Ao Dai. Take as many photos as you wish - enough to show your friends and loved ones when you go back home. You will also get the chance to learn more about the culture and history of the city along the way. Also, do not forget to stop by one of the city’s unique cafes for a coffee. After all, Vietnamese coffee is known to be very popular and it is time for you prove the rumour!
