Manic!!!!!!!!! motor bikes everywhere, although we did say that Hanoi will probably be worse?! Crossing the road is risking your life! lol! there seen to be no traffic laws or any that are respected! We stayed just two nights, visiting the royal palace and dinning very well.
It was a welcome sight to see the sea again! rick has been disappointed that there has been more clouds and cooler temperatures than before, but really its quite nice. We are staying in a cool hostel called monkey republic, and the rooms are small bungalows in the leafy yard. The beach just down from the hostel is quite busy with tourists and touts. As a result we decided to hire a moped to go to a quieter beach further away. The beach was lovely and the sea warm and clear. The down side to hiring mopeds is the traffic police, who insist on stopping all tourists (only) and making up rubbish to try and get money! 3 pull overs later and we were slightly annoyed to say the least! Price of beer even cheaper, 15p! Tomorrow heading to an island 2 hours by boat for a couple of days traffic police free!
