Da Nang is in the centre of Vietnam, and as usual the weather forecast was wrong; it was supposed to rain today but it’s been 35 degrees and scorching.
It took us about 30 minutes to find a water vendor, but we eventually set off.
This morning we hiked Marble Mountain.
This doesn’t quite show you how steep the steps were – trust me G’ma they’re even steeper than yours!“Another Pagoda” – OlThe view from the top taken by Ol because I was too scared to stand on a rock.Buddha wishing us luck on our 10km trek.After scrambling down a mountain and through a cave and almost getting knocked out by a falling rock, we decided to find a beach.
We walked through a site of derelict buildings and found we were the only people for miles. These round fishing boats are used by the locals.
Just a quick selfie on our beach!
It’s almost 4pm here and we’re about to have a nap, having walked miles along the beach (unsuccessfully) in search of food. We might try out the sky bar later, with views over the city and we’re going to look for dragon bridge too. We’ve booked a taxi to Hoi An tomorrow so looking forward to that.
Speak later X
P.s. For Grandad – spot the swastika.
