Hot sun, cool rivers, sandy beaches, lively bars and all the traders are on holiday - Hoi An is the perfect place for Vietnamese New Year....

Da Nang

Vietnam's 4th largest city has undergone major devolopments in recent years but is probably still more attractive from the air...

Hoi An

Cham Island

An hour from Hoi An, this beautiful island is a great getaway from the hawkers patrolling Cua Dai beach.


Looks like Tam Tam's best days are behind them - the service is surly, the beer flat and the toilet is literally falling apart. However, as well as numerous other places in town (Mango Rooms, Hai's Scout Cafe recomended) the future of Hoi An's nightlife may lie on the beach.

Opening only a few weeks ago the curiously named "Zero Seamile" is an ultimate bar. Resembling Nha Trang's 'Sailing Club' the beach front bar has cold beer, great food, pool table, table football, live music and a swimming pool.

The skies are monotone grey, the roads dangerously chaotic, and Cam Quat trees flash by everywhere. The Year of the Pig is imminent!

The last game of the season was little more than a friendly as the fight for the play offs had already been lost - but the Hanoi Minsk Club played with passion and even a final defeat didn't dampen their spirits....

Son Tinh

Half a hour from central Hanoi, the far side of Gia Lam, is Highway 4's liquor factory. In a peaceful countryside spot, the factory's distillery is always on the go to supply the restaurants with over 1,000 litres of Son Tinh Ruou consumed each month.

Filming on the set of a new advert for Tomato phone cards (an obvious naming idea to 'Orange', yet more comical. Like the commercial!)
