Continuing my Hoi An photos from my DSLR camera, here are the photos we were able to capture after taking a long rest inside an air-conditioned cafe that we were able to find after feeling lost and helpless in the street with no refuge. I didn’t even know the name of the cafe we rested in because it really was just an escape from heat and the tiredness of my feet/legs (I was feeling so pregnant then but now that I’m in my 32 weeks, I feel like I probably was lighter then! haha).
What a joy it was to finally have the energy to explore the streets again without the burden of the heat. The walk reminded me a bit of Jonker walk in Melaka.Pretty soon after crossing the Japanese bridge, we reached Mot, the little restaurant that we were looking for.Surprisingly, they seem to be famous for this herbal drink and people are queueing up for it in a long line. However, we didn’t have to queue since we were eating in. Win! The iced sweet herbal tea was so refreshing and was quite unique in taste. This was the star of the show: Cao Lau noodles as I’ve mentioned in my previous Hoi An post. It was crunchy, savoury, sweet, flavourful, refreshing, filling, and oh so yummy. We also tried the Com Ga (chicken rice) but wasn’t impressed by it. We ordered a second bowl of Cao Lau noodles. heehee. After a satisfying dinner, we strolled the streets more and walked to the riverside.I just couldn’t stop taking photos of my cutie explorer and the lanterns. The trishaws were everywhere by this time as it was nearing sunset and I guess the peak hour for trishaw traffic.Taking one last quick look of Hoi An because our driver was waiting already. Goodbye, beautiful lantern town.
These are photos from the DSLR while the previous post was photos from the iphone.
The sky was so blue, which meant we were quickly scorched and had to find shade. ><Taking a rest at the Tourist Information centre. A pregnant lady needs to rest her feet quite a lot.Hoi An is famous for tailoring and in this market there are stalls where they can get your preferred outfit tailored in a couple of days’ time. We overheard the shop tailors’ conversations with other customers.Looking up the way to get to Banh Mi (lunch) from the marketPassing by some historical sitesand more cafesAfter what seemed like walking forever because of the immense noon heat, we finally made it to Madame Kahn Banh Mi and sat down for our banh mi’s. Phew. That was quite a morning.
