Hoi An....
The Price Hikes Continue.

Saturated with day tourists and mid-range travellers, the very basic rooms, in this quaint old village near the mouth of the river, have ridiculous sliding scales right up to, and above, $40.

Down by the riverside


For a really depressing stay, the drab Hoi An Hotel can offer you anything from Five Class (lowest), to Luxury (priced through the ceiling.

A traveller on a budget can forget the bargain room in a sophisticated hotel scenario, while Dollar throwing Americans on a guilt trip will surely feel ripped off by this one. The restaurant is so inviting, you will be tempted to go a diet.

The restaurants by the river, on the other hand, are under-priced in comparison.

Nomadic Gatherings - Travels in Asia and Australia

Travel on trains and buses in Asia, then jump into cars with complete strangers in Australia and New Zealand as Michel introduces you to a collection of characters that bring Nomadic Gatherings to life.

If you can't afford to buy a copy of Nomadic Gatherings, the chapters are slowly being made available online - for free.

You may even decide that it really is worth having a hard copy in your hands; a useful read for those long bus journeys being written about, and for endless waits at ferry ports.
