Hội An can be translated as “peaceful meeting place”. And if people were walking around the city, it was totally clear that this was the ideal place of assembly for choirs for peaceful competitions from both, local and abroad. Hội An’s handcrafted and colorful lanterns are illuminating the city in the evening and colonial style buildings in Hoi An’s old quarter offers the relaxed atmosphere for shopping and dining.
Hội An is located just a stone’s throw from Danang City with its international airport right at the central coast of Vietnam. In 1999, the old town was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO as a well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port of the 15th to the 19th centuries, with buildings that display a unique blend of local and foreign influences. Quang Nam province has more than 120 km of coast line and even the competition venue is located directly at Hoi An’s beach side. In collaboration with the Vietnamese Central Government, the Provincial Government of Quang Nam and the City Government of Hoi An, choirs from around the globe will again have the chance to discover the beauty of the country, combined with an international choral event. Come and be part of it!
