We arrived at the Vinh Hung
2 Hotel in Hoi An in the early evening at about 7 pm after a 45 minute flight from Hanoi. Because it's a long weekend in Vietnam, the flight wasn't very pleasant due to the number of babies and young kids screaming, shouting and running around. The flight attendant said this kind of situation is typical at holiday times, as more Vietnamese can afford to takes their kids travelling with them.
is such a peaceful city and so quiet in the evening. The people are so sweet but I do have some trouble understanding their accent.
I had an early night after wandering around the streets a bit. The next morning, the staff at the hotel changed the room for me, because it faced one of the popular one way streets and was quite noisy during the night. Now the room overlooks the pool. My day started with a buffet for breakfast which is included in the $20 room. I spent most of the day walking around the city taking lots of photos. I also started to realize that this is not the right time to come to Hoi An because there are thousands of people in Hoi An for their holiday, the streets are packed, the restaurants are full and it's not the peaceful time I had imagined at home. But Hoi An is beautiful for sure!!!! Maybe it will quieten down after the weekend.
