I didn't think that it would get hotter as we travel north but I was wrong. Hue is posting 40C on some days and barely any clouds in the sky.

A very pleasant hotel, in a great location, step out the front door and a great restaurant in front of you, turn right and down the lane there is a great pub with free pool table, turn left and then right you are in town. The hotel has a great internet connection, the best we had. Bed's were incredibly comfortable.
