By the candle lights - Hoi An, Vietnam

Father & son selling candle-lit-lotus-floats by River Thu Bon - a foam box to shelter the flickering flames from the wind.

 

Every full moon night, all electric lights are switched off in the old quarters of Hoi An. Instead, lanterns are lit, giving the old town a most romantic feel.

By the River Thu Bon, tourists wish upon candle-lit-lotus-floats, & set the floats free on the river.
