Hoi An has a few different faces it shows across the day.

In the early morning, it’s a sleepy face. The streets are quiet, and the occasional dog wanders past. The next look Hoi An shows is when locals start taking coffee. As the eyes of the city open, so does the sights of the town, with the tourist destinations becoming active. As the sun keeps creeping up in the sky, Hoi An puts on her makeup; the markets open up, sales start. Around noon, the heat of the day is crushing motivation, and the town takes a nap. When the sun begins to dip; however, the dinning starts and the streets expand with vendors. After this and into the night, the night market opens and shows its colorful face.

This evening I went out to adventure the roads after dusk to see what sorts of sorts, I could capture with my camera. Some of the highlights of this outing were seeings food vendors and just taking in the faces of the masses as they flowed past.

I don’t think I fully experienced this market and will come back for a second night for sure.

This is either a very band name for a bar or quite a genius name if you consider “The Fountain” by Duchamp ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_(Duchamp) ). Perhaps they are just very hip?

There were many stalls with frogs on sticks at the Hoi An Night Market. Despite my curiosity, I decided to keep on the vegetarian diet.

There were also a lot more “standard” foods like fresh off the boat (*Like they were taking it off the boat) kinds of seafood.

I watched for a moment, this stall they both seemed very concerned over something, I wanted to go ask them… ” Excuse me, I could not help but notice from over there, that you looked concerned… can you tell me why?” … LOL, I could just imagine how that would go.
