I had this and the next day the same. Rice noodles with some kind of Peanuts sauce and lots of greens. Very nice!

Thuan Phong Homestay

Had to move to the Thuan Phong Homestay since my place was booked solid
Decided to stay a night longer since the forecast was not good for the next day. There was only one more couple at my hotel for the last 3 days and they did check out. So I did not think for one minute that it would be booked solid. But it turned out it was. So I had to move to the Thuan Phong Homestay. I got a deal for 9 US $ for the night and you can not beat this one!!

My room at the Thuan Phong Homestay. A king size bed and one queen size. Chairs, desks, AC, Fridge, Hot shower, balcony, breakfast included as well as secure parking for the bike. They even did bring me free dinner!!

You need a bicycle or motorbike if you want to go to the Old Quarter since it is about 4 kilometres away. You could walk in and take a taxi back as well – they are cheap in Vietnam.

Lets head to the Old Quarter of Hội An

A lot of the little side streets are so small you could not fit any other kind of transport

The Japanese bridge
The Japanese bridge dates back to the 18th century. Apparently the Japanese on the one side of the river build it to reach the Chinese quarter on the other side. It is kind of landmark here and in the night they illuminate it in all colours. How ugly! This is the neutral light – it does change every few seconds to blue, green, red and purple… You also need a ticket if you want to walk over the bridge. What a BS…

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
