Hoi an

Hoi An is up there among my favourite places in the world! I wasn't expecting much but suit making and a beach. Well when i arrived we booked into a hotel for $7 a night ensuite, really nice with a pool. We hired out mopeds for the days and nights we were there for really cheap as well. On first day we went and bought our suits and other items we bought, including shoes, shirts, jeans, etc. We got fitted for our very nice but cheap cashmere wool suits. These take about 2 days to complete to perfection. we then went off to the beach. Hoi an beach was a great beach with nice bars and cafe to eat at near a local hotel. we spent most of our days here relaxing and eating. the locals come out to have their dinner on the beach at sunset, which was a good experience. They would also share some of their food and they love you taking photo's of their elders with their babies. Nightlife was also great in hoi an. King cong bar offered free rum and coke for an hour then shots. night was great and busy and we all danced on top of the snooker table which was fun. Next day and night was spent at pool, beach and suit shop finializing fittings. We also drove out on the mopeds to a nearby village to see local life in its everyday nontourist form. We also went at night to eat at a restaurant on the beach before going to a bar called bar salsa. This was really nice, like a modern bar back home. But i think most people were to be found at king cong bar. We also took a morning trip to a place called my son with temples, and to some mountain place which had stunning views.
