Another touristy day in Hue, this time on a dragon boat tour on the perfume river. It was pretty cheap and a good way to see a number of sites in the local area in one day. The boat was slightly strange, almost a like a conservatory on a pontoon.
Our second stop after a temple was Thien Mu Pagoda, a famous seven-tier pagoda.
After lunch on the boat we then headed off on a bus to visit 3 more temples.
Overall an easy day trip, nothing too strenuous. In the evening we headed to pick up the custom-made dress ordered the day before. It was perfect.
John also needed to head out to book the bus for the next day to get to our next destination Hoi An. We had already paid for the tickets with the bus ticket from Hanoi to HCMC. All we had to do was take the ticket to the office to book seats.
We couldn’t find the tickets in the hostel. After a long look under the bed with head touches we found the ticket, John headed off to make the booking.
He made the booking but the entire time still had his head touch on his head above his cap. Idiot.
After that we headed for some food trying a Hue pancake, or has the locals call it Banh Khoa. A pancake filled with prawns, bean sprouts and other veg.
