Hoi An

A charming Riverside city, lots of bustling little streets with food market stalls - and lots of places to shop! Kind of a nightmare when you shouldn't really be purchasing, but here you can have anything you want hand made - ranging from leather sandals & boots, to winter coats & suits. All of...

Hoi An

Last day in Hoi An

The last day in Hoi An was quite quiet. I bought a mystery thing in a banana leaf parcel, which turned out to be a sweet glutinous rice ball, stuffed with coconut; very nice! I bought Sellotape from a stall at the market, where a pair of very cheeky girls tried brazenly to rip me off. After...

Full Moon Festival in Hoi An

Arrival in Hoi An

From Hue we got the sleeper bus again, except this time during the day, to Hoi An. Arriving in Hoi An, we were hassled by loads of hotel touts, but we were determined not to reward them with commission for hassling people and trudged around looking for hotels from the Rough Guide. We were...
