Hoi An, Vietnam (The Nam Hai)


A ‘V’ery festive Christmas and New Year awaits in the form of immersive celebrations inspired by the five (‘V’) elements of nature – fire, metal, wood, water and earth – delivered with a local Nam Hai twist.

“In true Nam Hai style, we’re focusing this year’s celebrations around our interpretation of the ‘V’ elements: the five elements that can be experienced here in central Vietnam.”
