I have to say Hoi An was probably one of my favourite spots in Vietnam. It had a perfect mix of old versus new; traditional streets and market stalls, boats flowing up and down the river and clubs on the beach for when you feel like going wild.
A highlight for me was hiring scooters with a few mates and driving out of town to explore the coast. Motorbikes are the favourite mode of transport in Vietnam, you simply can’t avoid them. They’re great fun to drive around too, dodging people, traffic and the odd farm animal while doing your best to avoid some pretty serious pot holes in the road!
