It was a whistlestop tour; we explored the food at the central market (featuring an array of tripe - I'm pretty sure I ate Pig's lung, the recurring thought of which led it to come right back up).
The roads around the lakes were windy and hilly and made JK pine for his lotus Elise, but he commented that the 30cc scooter more than sufficed.
Next stop was the local "crazy house" attraction - a mental cavernous hotel from what appeared to be an architect on acid. The fibreglass and sprayed concrete structure twists and turns, with bridges, secret cubby holes and climbs. There are crazy rooms such as termite, giraffe and pelican (note the real one in the picture is at the front).
We also sampled the local coffee - it acquires it's chocolately taste from the beans first being eaten and pooped out by weasels before grinding the beans. Mmm rich.
Next stop - more of Vietnam's best beaches.
