After a nightmare night last night, we got up early to find the hotel hadn't stolen our passports, mildly surprised we checked out the dirty and overpriced "hotel" and set off walking to catch the local bus to Hoi An. After half an hour, we found the bus stop and within minutes the bus arrived. Before we set off, we checked our travel guide which said the bus journey should cost 8,000 dong, so we thought even if we got charged 10,000 it wouldn't be too bad. As we boarded, we checked the price with the conductor who said the journey would cost 30,000 dong each!! With no other option we begrudgingly boarded the bus.
After an hour we arrived in Hoi An, and walked in the wrong direction out of the bus stop for a while but managed to check into a hotel very sweaty.
Hoi An is a world heritage site with much historic architecture. In a country where war has literally torn through most places of historical significance Hoi An a very popular place to visit.
We spent the afternoon wandering around the town, which we soon discovered isn't very big, the weather here is very hot and humid so after a while we escaped back to the hotel before venturing back out in the evening for dinner and a few beers. En-route home we picked up a bottle of Vietnamese Rhum for £1 a bottle, played a little chess, drunk our Rhum with lemon and went to bed.
