Vietnam´s former imperial capital, Hue has sights, tombs, temples and The Purple Forbidden City, but much of it was destroyed during the American war. The Ancient Town of Hoi An 100 km south, down the coast, is a much beguiling place to spend a few days, with its lazy river line with mustard yellow merchants´ houses, and beaches a few kilometers away.
WHAT TO DO?
1.-TAKE A COOKING CLASS: Hoi An is known for its diverse and excellent food; a legacy of the many nationalities, including the Japanese, Chinese and Portuguese, that lived or traded here.
2.-EXPLORE ON A CYCLE TOUR: Cars and even motorbikes are banned from the center of Hoi An. Most homestays offer bikes to guests, joining the many cyclists on the roads, provides an instant immersion into local life.
3.- HIT THE BEACH: The nearest beach to town has a severe erosion problem, exacerbated by winter typhoons, which saw most of the sand washed away from the seafront. Bang Beach, further north, is a more appealing prospect with much less development and plenty of soft sand.
4.-SEE WHERE YOUR LUNCH IS GROWN: Most meals in Hoi An include an abundance of the Fresh vegetables and herbs that make eating in Vietnam such a delight.
