We saw a few hotels in there through the window of our bus, but didn't stay.


Get out[edit]

Bus to Dong Ha costs only 50k dong, but be ready to be asked for 100k+. The driver must have a laminated paper (usually hidden under his seat) with real prices. Also it may take additional hour to gather all other locals, their packages and stuff around the town.
