Our last morning in Hoi An was beautifully sunny, so we decided to rent bicycles and head down to the beach for a mooch around. It was a nice bike ride there, through small towns and along by the river, which was lined with palm trees. Once we were at the beach, it was thankfully still pretty quiet and we were able to stroll along the sand and soak up the gorgeous rays of sun, knowing that we would soon be heading back to cold Tokyo.
On the way back to the hotel, we stopped for one last drink along the waters edge at a beautifully simple restaurant on the banks of the river.
Then our marathon journey back home started - 22 hours in all! This included a three hour drive up the coast back to Hue, which was quite dramatic.
We then had a 1 hour flight from Hue to Hoi An, another five hour flight to Seoul, a 45 minute bus ride from one Seoul airport to another, and then a two and a half hour flight to Tokyo.
We had a fab holiday, but it's good to be home!
