Stubbornly traditional and jam packed with sights, the intriguing small city of Hoi An was rated in 15th position.

Most attractive is the beauty of the city at night on the eve of the full moon, the site reports.

“Downtown Hoi An turns off all its street lights and basks in the mellow glow of silk lanterns. Shopkeepers don traditional outfits, parades, folk opera and martial arts demonstrations flood the cobbled streets, and the riverside fills with stalls selling crabmeat parcels, bean paste cakes and noodle soup.”
