Hoi An and Da Nang from Chan May

The World left Ha Long Bay at 8pm on November 20th and docked in Chan May around 6pm the following day. The ship was docked miles form anything so that evening we did not go ashore.

We hired a private car with driver and guide and set of towards Hoi An for the day.
First off was Da Nang with stops at the Cham Sculpture MuseumMarble Mountains, and ‘China Beach’, now Marble Beach. True, not much to see at this last one, apart from the beach, but I wanted to at least set foot on it because I liked the TV series ‘China Beach‘ years back. We could see the remnants of the American airbase, but it looked all closed off.

On we went to the ancient town of Hoi An, another UNESCO World Heritage site. We had a lovely time wandering around and having lunch, before it was time to head back to the ship.
