Chan May/Da Nang/Hoi An, Vietnam


As usual, Allyn finds an activity.



We docked at Chan May this morning. It is pretty much dead center between North and South Vietnam during the War.

Over the Internet I had hired Tommy Dao ( to guide us and three other couples for the day. It was a good move.

We saw Da Nang’s aptly named dragon bridge.



Then we visited the famous China beach, which really is Da Nang Beach, but was nicknamed by the servicemen during the war.




Next stop was Marble Mountain and beautiful jade carvings.




Most of the day was spent in Hoi An, a lovely rebuilt city with none of the hustle or filth of Saigon.
