Where I stayed
We arrive just after two at our hotel- a very very lovely spa right on the Thu Bon river. Our room is fronted by a small lanai with cushioned lounge areas on either side of the door. There's a living room space just inside the doorway and the bedroom is one step up. The bathroom, just beyond the bedroom through double doors, is a wonderful experience after the little space in Hanoi. To the left is a large counter area containing the raised bowl that is the sink. Straight ahead and a step down is the shower area with the rainfall shower head in the center. Off to the right, slightly hidden by a wall, is the toilet area. The bathing area is easily as large as the bedroom
We rush out of the room to join the group for a cyclo tour of the town. Hoi An was a trading town more than 5 centuries ago. It still retains much of the old buildings and narrow walkways. Our cyclo barely makes it through the narrow streets, competing with pedestrians, taxis and the every present mobs of motor cycles.
Back to the hotel by 4. We're free until dinner at 6. I'm going to enjoy a walk around the grounds, the lovely horizon pool and the beautiful breeze off of the river.
