The second day of our Danang adventure consisted of a day-trip to Hoi An. It was fortuitous that the hotel provided free transport to Hoi An. Hoi An as you know by now is a UNESCO Heritage site. The old town can be explored within a day. We took about two hours. The weather started off scorching. Unfortunately, the wonderful invention of the air-con, seemed to have skipped this quaint town. I found myself walking at a faster pace than usual, wanting to reach the next shade.

This little town is dotted with ancient Chinese architecture. The shops had old Chinese signboards and the temples were all in Chinese style. It wasn't much of an eye-opener as we are familiar with Chinese culture. Europeans may find Hoi An a little more exotic and interesting.
