... A strange sight and pretty cruel but I couldn't help but chuckle at how surreal this was and yet how normal they made it seem. The local bus we got onto instantly brought a smile to my face with colourful Vietnamese fabric seats and headrests and the disco lights that lined the ceiling. Walking down the aisle to the only available seats at the rear, the locals all stared as if a group of zoo animals had been trained to march for their entertainment. One man even turned ...
... up some interesting bread-y street food for a late lunch, to relax before meeting our tour group. By far the youngest in the group, with the oldest in their sixties, it wasn't quite what we'd imagined. Nonetheless, everyone seemed great, the tour guide got us really excited about the trip and we had a delicious Vietnamese dinner out together that evening.

Warm and friendly staff, who are very keen to make a good impression.
Hotel is clean and room was more like a suite. Breakfast a little disappointing.
