Such an amazing experience and a unique souvenir to take home afterwards. The staff were so helpful and were a good mix of showing you what to do and letting you work it out yourself. So many options for size, colour and painting options. Lanterns are collapsible so easy to carry around! Would recommend to everyone I know.

We booked a visit to the Pho Hoi Lantern workshop by email with Hảo. We were a little late turning up but this was no problem. Hảo welcomed us to the family business and talked us through the process of creating the lanterns, showing us the various shapes and sizes. He was able to answer any questions we had, speaking great English. We chose a shape, size and fabric colour. Hảo and another family member demonstrated and guided us through applying the fabric to the bamboo frame, correcting any errors and giving encouragement throughout. He even gave us a beer as we worked! He offered to take photos for us, and chatted to us about Vietnam. We couldn't have expected more. Excellent value for money and we purchased extra lanterns in addition to the ones we made at the end of the workshop. Thank you, Hảo!

We stumbled on the Pho Hoi Lantern workshop and it was obviously ment to be. Our daughter who is 7 was looking for a Vietnam keep sake and this was just the thing.

They are very patient in all aspects and not rushed. We had a great time not to mention the great family price.

This is a must do

We booked a lantern making lesson through our hotel. It was just us two and they were very flexible as we booked on the day. Hai was friendly and welcoming, showing us around the family home and offering us a drink. We chose our lantern shape and fabric, then watched his mother cut it. It takes too much time to make the actual bamboo structure of the lantern, this is done outside of Hoi An. He demonstrated each step of the lantern making and helped us when we got stuck. He was very patient and encouraging if we got stuck! Our lanterns easily pack into a tube shape to travel home. It is much more fun than buying a lantern and a cheap (£5-6) way of

We went here with our children to make a Latern. They had great fun. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they have lots of choice from beautiful materials and it is reasonably priced. I can highly recommend this place!

We had a great time here learning to make a lantern each. After finishing our lanterns we were shown around the building while they described the process, what the lanterns are for etc.
Overall fun way to spend an hour at a good price.

My children loved making the lanterns here with Pho and his wife. They were so helpful especially with my 4 yr old daughter. A wonderful experience in Hoi An to be able to take home your own handmade lantern instead of buying in the souvenir shop. At only 110k VND each it was a great price and so lovely to do it with a local family in their home rather than in a tourist shop. Highly recommend!

Seeing all the beautiful lanterns around Hoi An made us want to know how to make them. We looked into a few workshops but Pho Hoi's looked great and they were flexible and affordable with prices starting at just $5 for a small lantern. It is a family run business. First Hao started by telling us about lanterns and how to make the frame. We then chose our material and started assembling. They gave great clear instructions and we were very happy with our final products which are collapsable so fit into our luggage. You'll only need 1-2 hours and if you get a chance I'd recommend it.
