And crowds of local people and foreign tourists flock to the town near the Hoai River to enjoy interesting activities of Bai Choi - a popular kind of folk art in central Vietnam.

No one knows exactly when "Bai Choi" appeared. It is said this game was played during every Spring Festival in Thua Thien Hue Province around 400 years ago. Then "Bai Choi" lost its popularity and was almost forgotten, until the festival was revived after the former Feudal capital Hue and the historic town Hoi An in Quang Nam Province were recognized as world cultural heritage sites. Now, thanks to Hoi An authorities, who decided to preserve and introduce Bai Choi to visitors, the game is played for all to see and admire.
