4. Watch what you eat:
For lunch one day we made our way across the bridge crossing the river and were quite hastily urged by a restaurant owner to sit down at his establishment. He did look awfully like Ken Jeong, so we decided to give the man a chance, even though he was wearing a “Adididas” jersey. This should have been our first warning sign. We sat down and ordered a drink along with some food. We gobbled up our meals and continued exploring the streets. An hour later we were wishing we had listened to the warning signs and headed the other way.
5. Take the long road:
There is so much material for your photographic pleasure, it can take you a couple of days to capture it all. This includes the famous Japanese Bridge, beautiful old French architecture, candles floating down the river at night, toothless boat vendors persuading tourists to buy strange things or take a trip around town and even the aforementioned street dogs hungry for attention and a little bit of love. If you have a keen eye, you will definitely walk away with a couple of breathtaking shots, and a couple of pretty interesting memories to boot.
That’s all the advice I have for now. I hope these tips come in handy when you end up in Hoi An, and if you don’t plan on visiting this wonderful town soon, then make a plan!
