Event Details

Schedule of the Event
Workshop with Paul Smith


The historic coastal city of Hội An (translated as „peaceful meeting place“) is located directly at the South-Chinese Sea in Central Vietnam and surrounded picturesquely by paddy fields. Hội An was once the biggest port in South-East Asia and represented one of the most important harbours of the Silk Road. Already during the 4th century merchants from Arabia, Persia, India and China moored here.

The beautiful old town of Hội An was announced World Cultural Heritage in 1999 by the UNESCO and represents a well-preserved example of a Southeast-Asian trading port during the 15th up to the 19th century. Until now the old merchant homes can still be found on the banks of the Thu-Bon River and throughout the placid alleys. Visitors discover in every corner charming taverns, galleries and of course the typical colorful lantern shops and also temples, pagodas and prayer shrines. Vietnamese traditions mingle in Hội An with Japanese and Chinese elements – a sign of deeply rooted historical connections. Surrounded by all the original buildings, bridges and streets, time seems to have stopped. And nevertheless one is constantly surrounded by the lively Vietnamese everyday life with all its traditions and cultural activities – a fascinating experience!

Hội An is one of the most beautiful and charming destinations you can visit in Asia. In 2015 Hội An was chosen on rank 7 of the Top 25 Destinations in Asia (TripAdvisor).

The venues are located directly at the beach, which is part of the more than 120 km long coast of the Quang Nam province – the ideal place for refreshment in the cool sea after sudatory choral competitions!

By the way: During the event the famous Full Moon festival will also take place in Hội An. On this occasion all electric lights throughout the whole city are being switched off and the city is being illuminated by numerous candles and lanterns. On this evening Hội An is inspired by an emotional and nearly magical atmosphere!
