Walking around Hoi An, I felt like I was in ancient Vietnam. People around here are traditional and have properties that date back to 16th century. There are Japanese temples from the time when the Japanese came to the country and settled for a while. I discovered in one of the temples they worshiped dog a lot. In one of the Chinese temples, they have huge circular incandescent lamps under which, if you wish for something, it becomes real. That was the belief the people of Hoi An hold true to their hearts. I also boated around the Hoi An canals. It's simply a divine place to be in.
