About Da Nang
Right now my "plan" (I say "plan" because I have no idea what I'm doing tomorrow haha, nothing is ever set in stone) is to live in Vietnam until the mid of April, then travel Laos for a month, then maybe head off Indonesia for a couple of months.Other than my blog, I also started a marketing agency as that's what I love doing! Being completely honest I’m already making more money than I would have had I graduated engineering and got the best job possible! But it’s never been about the money for me, it’s about the freedom. The freedom to live life on my own terms. I care little for material goods, that's why everything I own fits into a single 30 liter backpack now after I gave away my winter gear.

Ba Na Hills
Feb 15: Day 6: Hoi AnHow this day is planned (my worst plan ever) .. Below 2 paras - Not necessary to read..Check out from homestay in morning.. keep backpack there.. go to Ba Na hills in the morning.. Go to My Son.. roam in Hoi An more.. have dinner in Hoi An.. at late night take a Xe Om and go to railway station to catch 3.00am train to Dong Hoi.What really happened: Checked out from homestay in morning.. kept backpack there.. went to Ba Na hills in the morning.. didnt go to My Son.. roamed in Hoi An more.. came back to homestay at 5.00pm.. asked them about ways to reach railway station.. they said only taxi.. no Xe Om available.. no bus.. But the taxi was costly.. So next best cheap option, go to Hoi An bus stand by taxi and catch 6.00pm bus from there to Da Nang.. I reached Da Nang railway station at 7.00pm.. Duh!!! I have a train at 3.00am.. What to do these many hours!! An hour later, I packed myself with water, chips, bananas, cake from the railway shop.. I found a charging point.. A cozy place to sit where it wasnt that cold.. and thats it Youtube!! Free railway WiFi.. Spent all the time watching some funny stuff.. I call this: Improvisation and learning!By the way, BaNa hills was cool.. It had horrible rains.. but lot of fun to ride the Yamaha through it.. very scenic, less traffic.. There is a mud bath castle kind of thing here. No idea what that is.This route: https://goo.gl/maps/CfzxwnRgK3S2
My Khe Beach
Next day, We hired a 2-wheeler to enjoy the city. We experienced little rains and dense clouds but we were enjoying. The look and feel of every city in vietnam was different in its own way. Danang is a blend of gleaming new modernist buildings, clubs, pagados and beaches. The famous attractions in da nang are Lady buddha, The marble mountains, My Khe beach, Museum of Cham Sculpture, Hàn River Bridge, Novotel hotel and Novotel Danang Han River Bridge. The city is fully lighted at night making it really beautiful.
