Sad to be leaving beautiful Hoi An, a magic place, great accommodation choice!
Short flight to Hanoi, with first impression of smog laden air!
Large, white Rolls Royce with gold wheels & petrol cap waiting out the front. A lot of bother for our pickup? Sorry, not our car!
Quiet drive into town then becomes crazy, small roads, weaving traffic, scooters everywhere. Footpaths used as parking bays for scooters
Locals put small tables & chairs on footpath selling their street food, amongst rubbish & scooters!
Craig, Jean & Paul go for afternoon walk to discover the layout of the city . Discovered many 'themed' streets, selling the same goods eg. Haberdashery, hardware, spices, glasses 'street' etc.
Kathy Bil & Lyn rested.
After convincing Kath & Lyn to come out for the night, took an Electric car tour around the old quarter & around Lake Hoan Kiem. Crazy traffic!
Electric car tour
Lots of brides & grooms posing for photos around the lake (in many different coloured gowns).
Red bridge over Lake Hoan Kiem at night.
Extravagant marquee on side of street, all decorated for a wedding.
Very narrow laneways between buildings used for storage & access to accommodation in rear
Small children very relaxed on scooter- even asleep while travelling.
