Arrival in Hue, Vietnam

A few days on the road, and finally we were in our first larger town, Hue, Vietnam. We stayed at a local hostel, and upon checking into our dorm rooms, immediately grabbed a few bikes and set off to watch the sunset, again, over the farmland. Hue is a beautiful town, and it took just moments on bikes to ride from the center of town to pristine rice paddies.

Cruising on out of town on our hip bikes. Biking in Vietnam is instantly great.

On the outskirts of town, we got to see all sorts of neat propaganda billboards.

Soon, rice paddies are everywhere, with sun glinting off the water between perfectly even rows.

And of course, what good is a sunset bikeride without a perfect dinner at the end? Some local flavors at one of the best restaurants of the trip.
