Today we left nha trang for hoi an, it's a UNESCO heritage town. We went for a cycle ride around the town visiting some old buildings and a Japanese bridge, the town has been unchanged from when it was the main port of Vietnam (over hundred years ago) then we visited a tailor to get some custom made outfits. The weather is about 28 and abit cloudy, but still nice. Anth & Sam
Hey all! Today we went out on a boat cruise. We went snorkelling and saw lots of amazing fish and coral reef, we managed to eat lunch with chop sticks :). When we got back we went for an Adam and eve spa package, with a massage, chocolate body wrap and a scented jacuzzi with a bottle of champagne. Feeling very relaxed, even if we are a little sun burnt. It's absolutely beautiful here wish we could stay. Sam & Anth
