We’ll continue south, going by road toward the riverside town of Hoi An. Our five-hour route, hugging the coastline along the South China Sea, serves up breathtaking views that grow even more spectacular as we wind our way up Hai Van Pass (Pass of the Clouds). We’ll pause to admire the stunning vistas of Lang Co beach to the north, and the city of Danang to the south. We’ll continue on, passing China Beach , where many American GI’s took their R&R (Rest and Relaxation!), and the Marble Mountains , home to the Cham legacy. In Hoi An, we’ll grab some lunch at the Vinh Hung Café, where the coffee milkshakes are divine and the menu surprisingly extensive. In the afternoon, we’ll take a walking tour around this once-thriving port and visit the famed old quarter, the Japanese Bridge , the old Assembly Halls, art galleries and many old houses once belonging to Chinese merchants. Come evening, we’ll dine at the Café des Amis along the river.
