A Week long stay at Hoa’s Place on China Beach in Vietnam
While in Vietnam we were fortunate enough to discover the very friendly Hoa (pronounced H-wa) and his family run hotel. It’s located a few hundred metres from China Beach (near Danang). What makes Hoa’s so special is a great community feel that envelops you and seemingly everyone that stays there. Certainly part of this, is that it attracts travelers looking for a community feel, but Hoa and his merry band take that spirit and run with it. The fridge is help yourself and every night there’s a family dinner where the tables are brought together, plates and plates and plates of food are spread around, and everyone serves themselves. We had one of the more expensive A/C rooms which came in at a whopping $11 a night.
Fellow travelers hanging out and swapping stories about their journeys. And the boys got to learn a few new versions of poker too.
If we couldn’t find the boys they were probably watching TV with the owners of the hotel.
