The selection of fresh fish was outstanding and the meal that followed did not disappoint!!

Vietnamese fish soup
This was very good and with the selection of fish on offer it should be lots of fresh herbs to finish this rich fresh soup.

Next grilled fresh oysters with a popular peanut chive coriander and chilli topping some of our group didn’t seem so keen Oh what a shame ….oh well thanks !

These restaurants are built over the water and as you can see still being built!

After a very nice lunch some of the freshest sea food I’ve ever eaten. We set off up the pass made famous in the UK by TOP GEAR how ever this side we had fog but this cleared just over the top to reveal an amazing view of HOI AN

We set off to finish in HOI AN and a day off from the bikes.

We ate the traditional HOI AN pork dish CAO LAU as part of our meal with spring roles and the chilli dip followed by a baked fish in banana leaves with the obligatory sticky rice.
