In my opinion food is a very important aspect of culture. According to this theory, I tried as much local food as I could get.
On Tuesday morning, 6th of March, I decided to take a tour to Cham Islands, which is a group of seven isles located 15 kilometres from Hoi An. The speedboat took about 25 minutes to arrive at a small village on the main island. The village has a tourist information centre, a school and a temple.
On February 29th I took the bus from Ha Noi to Hoi An. The bus usually takes 17 hours for that distance, but unfortunately during the night the vehicle happened to have a severe tire damage. It took the driver six hours to get the reparation done.
My flight took me from Munich to Moscow and then I took the connection flight to Ha Noi. The journey was rather fatiguing and I’m experiencing a strong jet lag now.
Arriving in Ha Noi, I just got around a little, checked in to my hostel and purchased a Vietnamese SIM-Card. I had a first glimpse on the city and I’m already very impressed. The food tastes awesome (as expected), the streets are crowded and everyone is always using his horn (just beautiful noise).
When I was relaxing at Hoan Kiem Lake, a student approached me and asked for some help with his English studies. The people here are amazing!
Tomorrow I will do some sightseeing. Pictures will follow soon.
