In Hoi An, there are quite a few large and small night markets, but famously known as the largest night market, attracting the most tourists is Nguyen Hoang night market, the central market. One of the many good things to do is to get around Hoi An night market.
The night market is located right across from Hoi An Bridge Pagoda, so it’s easy for visitors to walk here. You can take advantage of a walk, watch the river forever and enjoy some specialties before moving towards the night market.

Because, the feeling of walking on the street, immersing in the busy stream of people and enjoying the night beauty of the old street is nothing more wonderful. That is why I always recommend for visitors to go at night, instead of boring daytime and have nothing to play.
Shop for souvenirs
If you have come to Hoi An, at least you should buy something to make a souvenir, here people display and sell all kinds of goods to see the dizziness. Mainly souvenirs, sometimes brocade bags, diamonds, bracelets to more valuable items such as clothes, bags, etc. If you look closely, you will see The details printed on these items are conical hats and ao dai, which are typical symbols of the Vietnamese people.
Perhaps, the most marine item in Hoi An night market is probably the whole world, souvenir pottery because this place is also the source of pottery.

Just a small table containing billions of things, surrounded by small beautiful stools enough for visitors to sit, enjoy the delicious taste of the specialty dish while watching the streets and the flow of people.

Hoi An Night Market is open from 17pm on all days of the week, so you can visit whenever possible. However, we should also consider the weather, lest there is a rain forecast that day without paying attention, we can not go to many places.
I highly recommend you to combine the Hoi An night market on the 14th of the lunar month each month, which is the time of the spectacular old town night festival, all the lights will turn off, giving way to the light of hundreds of views. The lantern is big and small, brilliant and amazingly sparkling. The best time to admire the beauty of this beautiful landscape in the central Vietnam.
