Mekong River. There are hundreds of these floating homes. From Vietnam to Cambodia. Cruising the Mekong River into Cambodia was one of my favorite travel experiences.

They dug tunnels in the jungle where they lived. This was Cu Chi Province. American planes were bombing the heck out of western Vietnam and Eastern Cambodia. We visited the tunnels at Cu Chi today.
I enjoyed our visit to the Cao Dai Temple, where we listened to and watched the first 20 minutes of the service. Cao Dai ism is a religion I find fascinating, if a bit abstract and strict.
We stayed for 9 nights at the Hoi An Riverside Long Life Hotel. We really enjoyed Hoi An as well as our stay at this hotel. The Long Life Riverside has a pool and is easy walking distance to everything in Hoi An.
Map of the world – Vietnam style

An afternoon bike ride takes us from Hoi An to Cua Dai beach in Vietnam
Hoi An, Vietnam. We spent 9 days in Hoi An because we enjoyed it so much. Much of Hoi An industry comes from food and tailor made clothing. Tourism and hotel industry is rapidly growing in Hoi An as well.
