Recently I had been traveling in Vietnam for almost two weeks. Starting from Ho Chi Minh City in the south I was heading north to the capital city of Hanoi. Hoi An in the central Vietnam was my fourth stop after Vung tau, Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang in the south, which I have covered in a separate blog. The old town of Hoi An is a UNESCO Heritage site and the main tourist attraction there. From Nha Trang it takes an over night bus to reach Hoi An.
