I got into Hoi An very early this morning. Hoi An is a small town on the Thu Bon river just south of Danang. Hotels are a little more expensive here and finally settled on a place with a pool, free internet and WiFi, free breakfast, hot water, AC, a bath and free bicycle rental for just $10 a night.

Hoi An is World Heritage Site and famous for its traditional Chinese style architecture. It reminds me a little of Dali, China. For the ladies it is a shopper’s paradise. There are street after street of tailor and Asian homeware shops.

It was very hot however, close to 40 degrees. Nha Trang wasn’t nearly as hot. Hoi An also has a few local specialties, including fried wontons and steamed fish in banana leaf.
