The last tour preparations got me all around Monkey Mountain, over the Hai Van Pass, to Lang Co and back.
Today, I went south to Marble Mountain and Hoi An with the surrounding area.
While Hoi An is quite touristy, its still worth a visit and as soon as you get out of the town, you'll be riding across rice fields and through small villages.
Hoi An is mostly pedestrianized these days so you have to park your bike and walk but it also makes walking around the old town a bit nicer.
Outside of Hoi An, you can find small villages specializing in pottery and other handicrafts.
There are nice temples everywhere and it's worth a stop to see some of them up close.
The most interesting part is however being out in the countryside and watching the locals work in the fields.
