Where I stayed
$5 USD place, so cheap

Flag of Vietnam  , Bình Ðịnh,
Thursday, June 3, 2010

We had two days to make over 500 km. It doesn't sound like much, until you realise on our Chondas and Twanda we could only average about 30km/hr with stops. The first day we weren't quite able to make half the distance. Attributing factors were the late leaving of Hoi An to pick up suits and having one final big meal at Ms Loans and breakdowns. These normally came in the form of punctures.


How we decided on a town to stop was simple. First, we ride balls to the wall while there is light and pull over to look for a place once dark. In this case we pulled over for food and out of that we found the cheapest hotel of our trip at $5 USD for all of us. The locals were stoked to show us off to their family and friends. We lost Poppy for a bit with one local showing him around on his motorbike. We got a sense of the real price of Vietnam in us buying 9 fruit drinks at $3 NZD. They put fruit into them that one would never think of, like avocado and dates. Adding enough sugar, anything tastes amazing.
