This morning (at 8:00 am), we took a sleeping bus for Hoi An. It was quite confortable and it took us 4 hours to drive the 135 km. Once in Hoi An, we were picked up by the hotel owner on motorbikes and this was a bit scary, but we made it alive :-)
Then, we walked to Hoi An Ancient Town which is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because it is a well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port of the 15th to 19th centuries: it is really charming but also very touristy. And there are tailor shops everywhere. This is a big thing here. There is more tailor shops than restaurants or souvenirs shops.
For lunch, we had two good Hoi An specialities: Lao Cau (noodle with pork) and Banh Xeo (rice pancake with shrimp). We walked a bit more, visiting temples, before going back to our hotel (too hot). Then, we got out at 6 pm to meet up with our Aussie friends, Steve, Lorena and Sonny (Karen and Eve too). We had a great time having dinner and ice cream together.
At night, the old city is very beautiful with lanterns everywhere (and a lot of people in the streets too).
