We drove on Highway 1, which is the main highway from Hue to Saigon, which was unbelievable in terms of traffic….. a 2 lane road, one lane either way! No wonder it takes 24 hours to reach Saigon. We kept having buses overtake us… thankfully our driver didn't try to compete!
We stopped to see some fishing boats which are used to fish the very large lagoon just south of Hue… I actually thought we had got to the sea…..
Then we went over the pass……absolutely no view until we were about half way down on the south side……….
The fishing nets they use are surprising…. they are extremely large and they lower them into the water to catch the fish overnight..….
Cham museum in Da Nang which is just by the Dragon bridge…. on which there seemed to be few cars, but lots of motorbikes…...
We wanted to visit this museum to see what had been rescued from the My Son area before going there…….it is a fantastic museum, which gives an insight into the Cham culture…..
We needed to have lunch and decided to go to China Beach……
The view was superb….. but not the food! The restaurant was basically empty and we understood why once we got our bill! A very expensive lunch…. I think we were paying for the empty seats at out table!!
Then on to My Son…. which actually was quite a large area which took about 2 hours to walk around…. but the sun was finally out!
the Vinh Hung Emerald Resort…..
We had booked a river view room……. which was great.
Mango Mango, which we can recommend.
