Hoi an & surrounding beaches

Hi Guys

We're looking at escaping this mad heat in Hanoi.....really melting. Thinking of beaches (& hopefully decent) around Danang / Hoi an area, prepared to go over backpacker standards. Any suggestions??? Much appreciated, cheers

Check the power outage situation with the hotel you want to book. Be sure they have a generator. Things can be hot without air con.

The beachs in Hoi An are gorgeous, super clean and a great spot on a hot day but avoid midday as the sand is super hot also.

The town itself is out of town but only a couple of bucks on the back of motor cycle taxi and your there.

Make sure you have aircon, we were there mid june 08 and it was stinking hot. so hot that restaurants had permanent light water sprays to cool you off while you ate and most of it evaporated by the time it hit your skin.

Such a beautiful town

Enjoy :-)

toisatrippers google Hoa's Place Danang. This is a very laid back popular place that is certainly very different. From Hoa's you are in between Danang and Hoi An giving you opportunities to day trip from there.

We are currently in Hanoi and were in Hoi An 4 days ago. Hoi An was much hotter than here. The beaches are nice - but being a Queenslander - not as good as home - definitely no surf. Our hotel had a pool which was really pleasant to cool down in.

Thanks for your responses & tips on the air con problems. Power is a bit of a problem all round at the moment. Aware of the heat in Hoi an...but hoping for some swimming & some sweet sea breezes.

Friends have reccommended Hoa's place so we're keen to check it out.

On another note anyone reccommend a good dentist in hoi an, I've got a killer toothache & on holidays too, so not right.

Might pay to read vietnamnews.com.vn/Social-Isssues/200868/Big…

Certainly I've been affected far more than the centre of HCMC. Power problems everywhere. You might jump out of the fry pan..........
