After our cookery course and large lunch at the Gioan cookery school we felt we needed a rest ...so we were on the lookout for a nice place to stop…
We found it at Green Mango, which had been a competitor in our search for a cookery school in Hoi An! It was far more upmarket…...
The town was not too crowded walking around…..
Vinh Hung hotel where apparently Michael Caine used one of its rooms as a dressing room when The Quiet American was being filmed. I had initially thought of booking us in there to soak up the 200 year old atmosphere….but opted not to once I read the reviews on Trip Advisor. However that was how I came across the hotel we did stay in, a newer hotel of the Vinh Hung group!
Hoi An is famous for its quick turn around on making clothes…..
…and is also famous for its lanterns…..
We would have loved to have bought some but they do not fold down…..and with a 20kg limit to our baggage on Vietnam Air we would have had to have them shipped.
Street food sellers were everywhere…..
