Incredibly fun and engaging way to learn more about the beautiful lanterns that make Hoi An unique. Thuy (the Lantern Lady) has set up a great workshop next to her house with all of the supplies and tools. More than that, she provides a great history of lantern making and the guidance to allow any amateur to craft their own from a few simple pieces of bamboo.

Her English is great and she’s a fantastic host for a great activity. Highly recommend to learn more and gain a deeper appreciation for the lanterns that adorn Hoi An.

We had a brilliant time making lanterns. There were different size options for different costs, ranging from around 90,000 to 250,000 dong. We could choose our colours and the Lantern Lady was extremely patient and generous with her time and efforts. It was meant to take 90 minutes (there is a 60 minute option) but we were there for nearly 2 hours and loved every minute.

This was the highlight of my time in Hoi An. The staff were so welcoming, blissful, and passionate. They helped us create our own lanterns with such patience and care. I cannot recommend the Lantern Lady more, as a solo traveller, family or group it is a great way to emerge into the beautiful culture of the ancient city of Hoi An.

I made a lantern here yesterday...and returned today to make 2 more! I loved this class! It's such a unique thing to make, and the lanterns fold up for easy carry and fits into the luggage. This lady has such patience, speaks English so softly, and is very encouraging, whether teaching adults or children. This is a must do when in Hoi An! I highly recommend this lady's lantern making class!!!

Had a class yesterday with my husband and we both made a lantern. A very relaxed and unhurried time and you are encouraged to make the whole lantern yourself with tution and help where needed from the lantern lady.

It was a great way to spend time in Hoi An and you are also supporting a local business. We chatted as we were making our lanterns and times in Vietnam were very hard during Covid with no tourists or financial support being available.

So go along and make a lantern which you can be proud of!

A great activity for adults and children alike.

Cannot recommend it enough ☺

I visited the lantern lady through my travel agent which I can confirm and wrote a review but she deleted it because it wasn’t in her favour! She lives next door and kept leaving me for over ten minutes at a time but was attentive to the group prior and I believe it was due to Me being solo and because of my nationality. She would not speak to me unless she was giving instructions and then left for long periods of time and even when she knew I wasn’t happy about she didn’t care and would continue to ignore. There is a much nicer lady up the road I would recommend shopping around

I didn’t book to make a lantern. I turned up at 18:00 and was welcomed very warmly.
It was only myself at this time and I spent the next 1.5 hours being guided gently how to apply glue and the silk (colours you can choose yourself), and how to get rid of creases.
It was such an enjoyable couple of hours, and I felt would recommend this to anyone! You can choose lots of different shapes and a sizes of lanterns to make also! And they fold, so very easy to take home!

Highly recommended! We picked our fabrics and designs and spent a really fun hour making our lanterns after learning the technique at the start. Lantern Lady is very patient and helpful, and it was fun to talk to her about Hoi An. Our tweens enjoyed themselves as well. A really great way to spend an hour. Note that the lanterns easily fold up for easy packing.

We spent just over an hour with the lantern Lady and had a great time. Really didn't think we would be able to make such lovely lanterns from scratch in such a short time but with some help and patience we did it and they look great. Its really worth finding this place and spending some quiet time being creative. Its really good value and she totally refused to take a tip. Highly recommended for any age.

Me and my sister decided to come here on a Friday afternoon. It’s a typical Vietnamese house, few minutes away alway from the busy old town centre. We had a great time making our two lanterns from scratch but if you want you can also get the pre made frame. They give you 3 to 4 options to choose from. The lady helping us made sure we always knew how to do it and explained each step clearly. Overall, I totally recommended visiting the lantern lady to make a lantern :)
