Vietnam motorbike diaries – Day 7 (Danang to Hai Van to Hoi An)

Da Nang – Son Tra mountains – Hai Van – Hoi An

Distance: 200 kms

It was fantastic weather today!! And the view of the city was amazing from spots on top. I just stayed one night in Da Nang but the city was amazing. 


Since the weather was sweet, I decided to go back through Hai Van pass to enjoy the views. It was rewarding to drive the extra 60-70 kms. 


I then drove to Hoi An after eating at that cool vegetarian restaurant again. These are the views from my hostel/Homestay: 


And there’s the light festival going on in Hoi An. Interesting and quite busy. 

Vietnam motorbike diaries – Day 6 (Hue to Danang)

From: Hue

To: Da Nang

Distance: 100 kms

I was again riding in the rain yesterday for the first part of the trip. Gladly the cities are not too far apart. 

This route passes the famous Hai Van pass. The view is amazing but I could see it only partially for the first part, due to the fog. Still here you go:


Da Nang city is also quite nice. It appears to be safe. Some views from a place called Marble mountains, with an image of Buddha rocking it out:


There was also a neat little show at a bridge called Dragon bridge where the dragon spits out fire and water. 

Felt like a kid jumping into the shower!

I found a vegetarian restaurant that has great food at really cheap prices. Ate twice of what I have normally been eating here. The restaurant is called Ngoc Chi.  These pics are from 2 meals:
