This has been a relaxing break from the travel routine. This is a small beachside town and we were booked in to a resort style place. We relaxed on the beach, wandered around, swam, drank from coconuts, had massages, slept, etc.

An amazing sight here is fishermen out to sea in small baskets in the early morning. They use an oar to whiz around and are obvously trapping something out there (crabs, clams ??). I asked a staff member at the hotel and we both agreed that we were talking about crab pots but then I wasn't so sure. A dozen crabs didn't turn up from room service so maybe we did understand each other.

Equally as amazing was making arrangements with a local travel agent at 8pm on New Years Day (a public holiday ... apparently) to book flights and train and bus tickets for later in the journey. I would have been hard pressed to buy a loaf of bread at that time on a public holiday in Toowoomba.

From here we go a little inland and catch an overnight train to Danang and then Hoi An.
