We had an amazing time learning how to make the beautiful lanterns you see all over Hoi An. The Lantern Lady is a brilliant teacher and we learned a lot. We got free tea and coffee and the cost of the class and lantern itself was minimal - a definite must do when you're in Hoi An. I hope my lantern makes it home in one piece as it's such a special souvenir.

I wasn't too excited about spending a morning making a lantern in a town where you can buy so many already made, but it turned out to be quite fun! I went with the family and some friends and had a very good time. The teacher is well prepared and the materials are nice and sturdy. We all came away with cute little lanterns and fond memories! I would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed making the lanterns. It’s very reasonably priced & easy to follow, thanks to the instructor. She’s so helpful & calm- there’s no rush. We chose the longer option, making it from the start- plenty of lovely colours to choose from. This was one of my favourite activities of the holiday. Well worth it
