From Hue we had a 140km drive to Hoi An. This took us past the picturesque fishing village of Lang Co. A beautiful still Lagoon is home to an abundance of shellfish and we saw mussels growing on old scooter tyres, no doubt there is an abundance of these! We also saw ladies selling the shellfish at the roads side, under an umbrella in basins with oxygen being fed into the basins with plastic tubes.
Onwards and upwards we climbed up to the Hai Van (sea cloud) pass at 496m. From here we could see down towards Danang and back to the fishing village we just passed and beyond. The lady Buddha of the Danang sea front, a protector, could be made out from here, she stands at 17 storeys tall.
