I arrived in Hue yesterday from Danang. I only stayed one night in Danang. The only cheap hotel I could find was like a sauna, and I had this motorcycle guy annoying the hell out of me the whole time.
I always try to be polite to people, but to most Vietnamese people it shows that you might be interested in their service. The constant hassling while walking around is one of the main negatives in Vietnam. I do realize that the people are poor and they are just trying to make a living, but it does wear you down after a while.
Like another Aussie guy said to me, if you gave money to everyone you met who you felt sorry for in Vietnam, it wouldn’t be long before you were broke.
I am renewing my visa for another month and since it is Friday I won’t get my passport back until Monday. Hue seems like a nice place to hang out for a couple of days. I am thinking of taking a tour to the DMZ which sounds interesting.
