Hoi An, Vietnam
We spent 14 hours on the overnight sleeper train to Hoi An. The train wasn't as nice as the previous one, the sheets were not clean and I was glad of the sleepsack I had brought with me. We had visitors of a different type this time, several cockroaches wanted to share our cabin with us and we had to remove them before we could get to sleep.
Hoi An is a very picturesque port town with lots of small craft shops and tailors in the old quarter and a very ornate Japanese covered bridge across the river. It's a good place to have clothes and shoes handmade, so I had a dress and silk top made, they fit perfectly. Hoi An is my favourite place so far in Vietnam.
