Paid $12 for a hotel to arrange motor bicycle trip to a temples and two tombs in Hue. It wasn’t cheap, but I didn’t feel to negotiate with drivers by myself. Too tired.
Thiên Mụ Pagoda
Tomb of Emperor Tự Đức
My driver took my guidebook and researched during lunch. He had offered additional trip too often even during lunch…
Tomb of Khai Dinh
Tomb of Minh Mang
This is additional trip. Negotiated extra cost and decided to pay $2.50 more to him. I insisted $2 and pretended to go back to the hotel three times, but he didn’t agree… he won.

Hanoi to Hue
Traveling by train.
Arrived at Hue.
Square in front of the station. Many motor bicycle drivers stalked me with hope of getting paid by me.
Walked to the center of the city.
This mini hotel was the best in this trip. $20/night.
View from the balcony.
Headed to Imperial city (the Citadel).
Walked to Dong Ba market.
The lady holding her kid needs to walk across the busy street. No traffic light.

Even this small village has ATM.
Went to a market near the bus station.
Looks like a blue bird.
It was freezing cold on this pickup track for three hours from Nong Khiaw to Luang Prabang…
The driver got an alive chicken and put on the track on the way.
Hired a track with $19 for round trip to Kuangsi Falls which is 30 km away from Luang Prabang. The speed meter was broken and always pointed 0 km/h.
Got back to LP.
Flew back to Hanoi, Vietnam
Transported by a taxi from Hanoi airport to Hanoi station.
I was sleeping on this bed at the moment of the year 2013 end.
