We combine a domestic flight and a scenic drive to Hoi An, an ancient fishing village where the markets are colourful and pungent, selling everything from fr uit and fish to traditional china, clothes and pearls. I have a lively and enjoyable time bartering with the vendors and at the end of it, we all end up smiling, pleased with the deal. Approaching the university city of Hue at sun set in a colourful dragon boat, we're overwhelmed by the immense width of the river. We glide into a beautiful hotel and spend the next day exploring the city's elaborate mausoleum and buying original art from the university students. Vietnamese cities are a wonder. You'll need eyes in the back of your head to see everything -- a live cow being carted to market on a scooter, five pigs piled on another, buffalo casually crossing the airport highway, rice paddies hemmed in by industries -- and even with the wonderful lack of road r ules, four million ducking, weaving and merging scooters somehow get around with no traffic jams and few accidents.
