A Three Step Hop from Hoi An to Hanoi, Part Two

A Three Step Hop from Hoi An to Hanoi, Part Two

My initial plans for Vietnam only included Hoi An and Hue, to focus on central Vietnam during my short trip.  When booking my flights, I found out I could fly direct from Guangzhou to Da Nang, but no direct flights were offered in the reverse direction.  In order to return to Guangzhou to catch my flight home to SFO, I had to travel either south to Hoi Chi Minh or north to Hanoi from Hue. So that’s how I reluctantly wound up in Hanoi, the large, bustling, crowded capital city.
