At around 4pm I left the hotel to wander in to town and have a look around. It was a pretty cool town with traditional architecture. I wasn’t overly keen on wandering too far since I was still recovering but it was good a bit of the town.
For the rest of the afternoon I sat in a coffee shop to book some more flights and hotels/hostels for the rest of my trip. I also managed to FaceTime my family back home which was good especially after a month!
In the evening me and one other member of the tour group went for dinner down by the river in Hoi An. We were both feeling like we needed a rest from the big group so it was nice just to chill.
We went to an Irish bar called the Dublin Gate. We didn’t choose it because it was an Irish bar but we chose it because it looked amazing from the outside. It was lit up like a Christmas tree and had live music. Also, you can’t really go wrong with an Irish bar – let’s be honest.
It was a nice chilled evening and actually quite nice to have one day off from being in a huge group. It sounds antisocial but being in a large group for one month solid does take a toll eventually.
On the walk back to the hotel we got to see the old town lit up at night. Hoi An is quite known for its lanterns and so it was nice to see the place at night – it looked impressive!
Tomorrow we are doing the cycling tour around Hoi An. It’ll be good to do some exercise for a few hours and see the sights. The cycling tour in India was good fun and this should be just as good!
