This morning was spent in a tailored clothes shop. Rose and Poppy wanted to take home some new tailor fitted clothes. The plan for the day was to rent out motorbikes and go to My Son, which is a historic site consisting of many ruins. However, after going to rent out the bikes and giving them a go (baring in mind none of us had rode them before) we decided that we were definitely not ready to go the long distance. Poppy got stuck in the middle of the road when she tried to turn round to come back to the place of hire, oops!

We were later joined by a friend of Rose's, Kirsty. Advising Kirsty that we were not renting motorbikes anymore, we decided on bicycles and as is was a nice day, head to the beach.

It felt so nice riding a bike, in the sunshine with some beautiful surroundings on route. Just what I think I needed.

A few hours in the sunshine and swimming in the sea, we made our way back to do what we all do

Strolling down to the other side of the river, we went to see one of Hoi Ans attractions, the Japanese Covered Bridge. It wasn't that amazing, but we had some photos taken and headed on to the night market and wandered around.

Time for drinkies - we walked to the Meet Market where cocktails were in order, followed by a few games of pool. Meet Market offered free motorbike rides back over the river to a different bar, so we took advantage of this when it was home time as it was closer to walk back from (we never went to the other bar though!)
