What To Expect

Looking for the perfect souvenir to take home from Hoi An? Join a Lantern Making Class and add a touch of your own personal flair to an oriental ornament that the Vietnamese believe to bring good fortune and happiness when hung in front on your house. These lanterns, characteristic of the ancient town of Hoi An, will take you back to the charming streets of the old city at a glance. Choose between an express class that already prepares the bamboo sticks for you beforehand, or a full class that lets you experience lantern making from scratch! Create lanterns shaped like lotuses, triangles, garlic, or diamonds and choose your desired silk style and color. An experienced English speaking instructor will be guiding you every step of the way. This fun and unique activity can be enjoyed by the entire family, even by kids as young as 3 years old!

    So much fun to make our own lantern and the staff is so nice and helpful! Thanks so much!
  • Suzanne 28 Aug 2018
    What a great experience. We loved it and so did our 7yr old. The staff were so friendly and excellent tutors. The instructions were easy to follow and we came away with a beautiful silk lantern that will always remind us of Hoi An.
  • Yvette 17 Aug 2018
    This was such a great experience! My husband and I were the only two in the class, which happened to be a very short walk from our hotel. The brothers who run the workshop, with their staff, were all so pleasant. They were patient and helpful throughout the entire process of making our lanterns. The lanterns fold up quite well and are easy to transport home. We put them in our bookbags with no problems. This lantern-making class was a highlight of our trip to Hoi An. I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to the area.

    I booked the class instead of my sister. I heard that It was a fun class. They really enjoyed that time, even they didn’t use same language. Even though they couldn’t speak English well, it was still great time and they made happy memories.
