    I just arrived in Hoi An this aftenoon via Hanoi- it was just starting to rain last night as we left Hanoi, and was still raining as we went through Da Nang this afternoon. Hoi An is overcast with a slight breeze (natural for the area?) but otherwise great.

    Thank you! And is everything alright over there or is it still flooded?

    In Hoi An now, all business as usual. There's a few (dry) muddy streets if you visit any of islands, but otherwise you won't know there'd been any flooding around the old town etc.

    Currently in Hoi An too. We did a trip to My Son yesterday and evidence of Ketsana can be seen around the place and particularly on the island near Hoi An (we came back via the river) which is quite a mess but as the other people have said, otherwise you wouldn't really know. It's actually a really nice time to be here - I gather it's quieter in hoi an than usual as alot fo tourists are staying away still. It's a joy to walk around the old quarter in relative peace and quiet. Hue was much the same. Pretty much evrtyhing is open, bar a couple of shops by the river. We're biking out to Cua Dai beach today - I gather some of the hotels out that way are a bit worse for wear. If you were looking to stay in one of the riverside/resort hotels you may want to check out Broder's recent posts on Hoi An on TripAdvisor - she wrote a comprehensive report a few days ago about various hotels. Otherwise, all good and the weather's been great.

    Just back from Hoi An (yesterday) and you really wouldn't know there had been a flood....yes it rains but they are usually short sharp showers that last about 30 mins. there is evidence of the floods and the local shop owners will tell you how high the floods were, but they are so used to flooding that it was all cleared up within 2 days
    Please go the area relies on tourism and without it people will be hurt more than by the physical effects of the storm!
