The flight to Hue was an easy 1hr and spared us another 8-12 hours on a train for not that much more money. In Hue we walked along the Perfume River and took a 7 hr cruise to see some ruins of the old monarchy. After a couple of days in Hue we were ready to move on.
We took a 3 1/2 hr bus through Da Nang to our current location Hoi An. Hoi An, to us at least, is Vietnam's version of Laos' Luang Prabang; a well preserved city historically and culturally thanks to its inclusion on Unesco's World Heritage Site. And it's super cute to boot!
We are also having some clothes made as Hoi An is famous for its tailors. This is evidenced by the fact that every third store is a tailor (then shoe maker, then restaurant...) - some comfortable travel clothes and some to ship home.
