Day 14 – Thursday 7th January – Hoi An

After the last few days with an early start we had a lie in this morning… And only just made breakfast!

After this we wandered back into the central area and bought a ticket to view some of the houses and pagodas inside. We saw Tan Ky house, an example if a late 18th century shop house combining Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese architecture.


We also went into Phung Hung house which has been in the same family for 8 generations. Our last two stops were at the Cantonese Assembly hall, just one of the various assembly halls on Hoi An, and then the museum of trade ceramics. There are a number of assembly halls because historically reach ethnic population from China had their own community.



We had a light lunch at the Mermaid restaurant before catching a taxi back to our hotel… Ed’s ankle is doing its tropical thing and his bites are swelling… What with the anti malaria, vitamin B1, antihistamine and antibiotics that her had now started, I’m sure he would rattle if he bounced to much!

We siege the afternoon lounging around the hotel before meeting up with everyone else for a meal at the banana leaf restaurant. We caught a taxi there and back, in deference to Ed’s ankle!  Last night in Hoi An tonight…. Off to Hue tomorrow!
