Discovering the real Vietnam with Jack Tran tours.

Taking a Hoi An Tour was the perfect way to gain access to people and stories...

The Hoi An Japanese Bridge

Good Morning Vietnam, Part 4: Fishing off Hoi An!

In my previous post, I talked about the first "agritourism" or "ecotour" tour we did during out recent, month-long trip through Vietnam (thanks to Vietnam Central Coastal Tourism!): Wet Rice Farming with Water Buffalo, and how awesome it was! The second one, also with Jack Tran's Ecotours, was Fishing and 'Palm Paradise', and it was great fun, as well! Elisse casts her fishing net! As...
