Fri 15 Nov: HCMC to Danang to Hoi An

1 hr flight to Danang (3rd city of Vietnam), 1.3 m people now.  Was large US base during war, & they also had their R&R on ‘China Beach’, 1 of top 10 in world. Main road was originally runway, so v straight. The Demilitarized Zone is 200 mls N. Drove S to beautiful Hoi Ann Silk Village resort. Complete contrast with HCMC, in quiet, lush tropical setting.

Free silk production tour on arrival: from silkworm …
…to magical golden silk extruded from worm as it pupates
