Hoi An

We are now in Hoi An, still in Central Vietnam but closer to the ocean. To get here from Hue we drove up and through the Hai Van mountain pass and then through Danang. Hoi An is one of only two ancient cities left in the world, and has not been destroyed despite the history of war here in Vietnam. We visited several houses that have been preserved since the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

There are also over 100 tailors in town and I am having several dresses made for me :)
