Vietnam: Day Five – The Ancient City of Hoi An

Mien, the guide for the day, is from Da Nang, a city just a few miles from Hoi An—which was founded about 400 years ago as a major trading post from East to West. I’m staying on the outskirts of Hoi An in a unique oceanside bungalow about 50 feet from the ocean. Nothing else is here at the water as far as you can see in either direction. This is amazing.

The room itself is really unique. The bathroom is attached to the sleeping quarters but is basically outside in a private garden. The shower, toilet, and sink area have a roof over them; however, the tub resides as a central feature of the private garden. It’s beautiful but exceedingly hot and humid.

Here are some pictures from around the ancient city of Hoi An during the day and then again at night.
