We woke up this morning and headed off to get our tailored clothes. We hired bicycles and stopped off to get breakfast - delicious chocolate pancakes. We got back on the bikes and headed back to our first tailor to pick up the other girl's clothes. I spotted some fabulous silk purses and scarves and managed to buy a few for back home. We found a shoe shop that sold silk thongs for a few dollars and bought a few pairs.We then rode on to our tailor where i picked up my suit and ordered a paddington bear coat.
We then rode back to our hotel for a little rest before riding 4km to CauDai or China Beach. It took us nearly 1/2 an hour to ride there but it was worthwhile. We had lunch at a beach side restaurant before sitting on the beach. We seemed to be bothered by like a million salespeople -giving in and buying bracelets and other jewellry.We read on the beach til 5pm before we rode the 4km back to our hotel stopping on the way to buy more books to write in and to call home. We rode back to the hotel and had a swim in the pool. We had a shower before getting ready to go out and have dinner. I ordered Monk's soup (no flavour) and spring rolls (too oily!) We then rode back to the tailors to pick up my jacket. We rode back to the hotel and watched some telly before finally heading off to bed for the last time in Hoi An
