    Da Nang

    November 18, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Da Nang for us was a place to relax and slow down from our usual high speed travel routine.
    We booked a mini apartment in a nice hotel with a swimming pool on the roof and enjoyed some easy days of eating, sleeping, relaxing and even getting a massage.
    One day we went for a walk to the other side of the river, we crossed on a bridge whith a giant dragon on. We visited the Museum of Military Zone 5, which is still an active military base but one building is open for visitors. Hardly anyone seems to know about it which makes it extra spooky when you walk by military planes, helicopters and tanks, it is a strange feeling to be the only people in this big building of communist propaganda.
    While relaxing, we thought through what we want from our really last month of travelling and we decided to go back to Thailand for some less "backpacking style - constantly moving" holiday. We bought a plane ticket and left for the airport with excitment. At the check in desk we were informed that we can only enter Thailand for 30 days but the time between this ticket and our ticket back to London is 31 days...
    We were told that probably we only need to pay some money for the extra day once we land in Bangkok but we didn't want to risk it.
    So we bought a new ticket in 3 days time and as we left the airport building a bird pooed on Tom's head. What a lucky day?!
