Hoi An during the pandemic is not bustling with its usual laughter, crowds, and colorful boats. The city still possesses its inherent gentle and ancient beauty, but the beauty is more peaceful now. These days, Hoi An returns to the tranquility, beauty, calmness and serenity of 20 years ago.
People have the opportunity to enjoy the town from a more peaceful perspective, despite the linging Covid-19 anxiety among the workers here.
For the time being, Hoi An this season is still beautiful, still poetic and peaceful in every house and street.
