Along small streets are old houses with rows of lanterns hung at the entrances spreading warm red or yellow light. There are shops selling many souvenir items with typical characteristics of the town, such as the lanterns made of fabric, silk garments, terracotta toys and fine-art items made from bamboo, rattan, copper and wood.

On the sidewalks, under the shade of the bougainvillea flower trellis are small shops selling coffee or dinner. Inside the shops, people can enjoy a bowl of noodles from Quang Nam, or sip coffee in a calm atmosphere full of gentle music and yellow shimmering candlelight.

At night, the streets are always crowded with people, but the atmosphere is not too noisy like other tourist destinations. Everyone walks slowly to enjoy the street life with a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere

The streets along the Hoai River create the most beautiful scene. Late at night, the river looks more brilliant and sparkling in the light of the decorative coloured lanterns from the streets on both banks. The singing from a Bai choi singing group becomes more and more thrilling, luring visitors to stop to watch the folk games and enjoy the love duets sung by young men and women. Not far away, near the Cau (Bridge) Pagoda, many passers-by are interested in the smooth folk songs performed on the sidewalks by young men and women of  Hoi An  Town. A little further on, there is a folk song class for children. In the yellow light, about ten children sit quietly to learn to sing folk songs. They look like young birds that are learning to sing.
