A Travellerspoint blog



1270615.jpg After James and I encountered a viscous bout of food poisoning on Tuesday night and had a travel day Wednesday, which vengeful stomachs made a bit more exciting, we made it to Hue. The old capital of Vietnam and home to plenty of tombs of old emperor's.

We started by exploring the old forbidden city. Which was half refurbished and nice:


And half was run down and abandoned. It was odd, but cool to see some original buildings.


The next day, we rented mopeds and explored some tombs and an abandoned water park. The water park was actually full (10-15) other backpackers and was very cool.


And James picked a fight with a cow in the middle of the road.


Tomorrow we will bike (moped) over a mountain pass (sorry mom!) Which is supposed to be one of the most spectacular views in the country. We will be in Hoi An at the end of the day.

Explored Hanoi and went to the resting place of Ho Chi Minh. Then we went to Halong Bay. Kayaked, we went to fish farms in the middle of the bay.
