    Posted from within Vietnam.

    There are SEASONAL flights to Da Nang, some direct and others via Laos.

    Hoi An is about 30 minutes by road from Da Nang.

    Three weeks in Hoi An seems a lengthy stay so if you are looking for beach the place to say is CUA DAI BEACH - be aware THAT THERE ARE WHIRLPOOLS AT CUA DAI although the hotels prefer NOT to tell you. They are between the Victoria and the Palm opposite the intersection with the road from Hoi An.

    ALSO know about the bicycle parking scam that exists near the Cua Dai POST OFFICE where a police look-alike (khaki uniform, NO hat, and a scruffy red and white stick) who will direct you to to a patch opposite where you will be charged VND10,000 (the normal rate is VND1,000 for bicycles). Just yell out VICTORIA and cycle on whilst ignoring this fake (who bribes the police so they ignore him).
