Vietnam was only a little stopover on my trip back from Europe to Australia. I only stayed a few days in Hoi An. Holiday !!! As the temperature constantly reached around 37C (yeah … what a great escape from the Melbourne winter) with very high humidity.
I thought I use the time off to write about some other more interesting topics about Hoi An Vietnam which could be of use for other travellers. So I went out and tried to find some of the best restaurants in Hoi An. there is an abundance of restaurants in Hoi An and it is hard to select very nice ones. The price level is very affordable compared to western standards and you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of food you get.
Don’t be too stingy … when you find a bar where the beer only costs 0.60$ don’t expect too much from the food (equally cheap). The price differences in Hoi An are very high. You can read some of my recommendations here:

Relaxing in Hoi An
