An Indian magazine, India Times, has named Hoi An, a World Heritage Site located in the central province of Quang Nam, one of the world's most romantic cities.
The city has old-world charm in abundance and world-class attractions that include spectacular beaches and resorts fit for sun-worshiping couples, the magazine said.
"One night before the full moon every month, the city turns off every single light and bathes itself in the soft glow of thousands of paper, glass and silk lanterns in all colours and sizes," it said.
In addition to Hoi An, the other cities on the list are Paris; Galway, Ireland; Fiesole, Italy; Savannah, in the US state of Georgia; and Fes, Morocco. — VNS
