HOI AN I LOVE YOU!
Love at first sight when entering this city in the ‘old town’. Wondered around the first day to look around for some nice souvenirs, hand made and tailored clothing and food. What a great place. It’s peaceful, quite, charming, colourfull and just lovely. No busy traffic anywhere here, just a few motorbikes and some bicycles that’s all. There’s music on the street, it’s next to the sea river with cute little restaurants and boats. The beach is only a 15min bike ride away, and so we went there yesterday on our 1$ bikes with our hotel towels and banana’s. Wow, this beach must be the beach they use for the wallpapers everywhere, so white and clean, white palm-trees and bright green/blue water.
After 2 days of shopping, eating, wondering around and biking, it was time for some action and sight seeing again. So we went to the Marble Mountains.
They used to be the mountains where they got the marble stone from for the buddha statues etc, but it became popular under tourists to visit, so these days they just get the marble from China (haha, yeah cheaters). But, they made a good choice stopping to get the marble from these mountains, because it absolutely gorgeous here! On the biggest mountain, there are many buddha’s in and outside the small but beautiful caves, little temples, pagoda’s and stupas. The view from the top was just amazing! Looking out over Danang, the beach and carst mountains in the sea.
Totally saturated by everything we saw, we went back to get a bike again and hang out at the beach. Later the evening I tried out the skirt and top I got myself tailored in one of the shops here. Hope it’s going to be perfect!
*update* the skirt and top are perfect! So maybe I’ll try to get some outfit photo’s and make an outfit post soon.
