Christmas in beautiful Hoi An.

Some pictures I took during my 5 days in Hoi An, an old trading port dating from the 15th to 19th century. I really like the old Chinese style shop-houses with all the lanterns light up when the sun goes down. You could definitely find a nice cafe to sit in and enjoy some desert and a cup of Vietnamese coffee for half of a day. I did.

Next stop: Nha Trang.

Met up with some people for dinner. Com Ga (chicken rice) suppose to be one of their local specialties. Cao Lau noodles was the other. 

Desert after dinner. Fried donut with coconut inside.



 Haven't lead outside in a long time. Too bad this was their only lead route they set up. Definitely not a big climbing area in Hoi An due to government restrictions but still lots of fun.
Got some climbing done here in Hoi An. Nothing great. 


Got invited by my climbing guide to their Christmas eve get together...Mot, Hai, Ba, YOOOO!!!! Great people and food. Free!


Everything 14th of the lunar month, the city turn off all electricity and uses the lanterns as a source of light. 




There are hundreds of tailor shops in the city. If you want a custom made suit or dress this is the place. Kimmy is one of the most popular one. 

My dorm room. A bit close to each other. Met a few cool people here at Hop Yen Hotel. 

Not sure what that is. If anyone knows, please do tell. 


Super windy, cloudy and rainy that day. Cua Dai Beach. 


Not a very good jump. 


Merry Xmas!!!! Yeah I just woke up.






Pretty cool restaurant on the river. 

Mostly cafes, restaurants, and shops at the river front. 


What the hell is copyrights?

$4 for this awesome breakfast. BACCCOONNNN.

Go Vietnam cafe. Hung out here for 5 hours and a cup of delicious Vietnamese coffee. Emily waiting for her bus to continue her journey. 

Street food vendors right by the river. Love this place.

Japanese Bridge.


Just more cool looking shops. 

A small Christmas eve concert right by the river. Awesome fireworks at the end.

  1. I believe those sticks in the water are farms. Must have a net around it. Maybe fish farm, shrimp farm, or even pearl farm... who know. Enjoy your trip!! Looks amazing!
