Probably not. I've done the trip twice, there and back with private cars and failed comprehensively to change the mind-set. The driver gets free food and, probably, a commission on every hideous item you buy. I'd imagine this'll be one of those moments where translation will suddenly get very difficult indeed.

However, as the trip there and back is one of the most boring drives in S.E. Asia, you - and your bladder - may appreciate the break.

Remember sf, I am a cantankerous old fart and should not be listened to. Get additional opinion.

Now, I'm not kidding here or making this up or anything like that. There is an entire village outside Hoi An that does nothing but make conical hats. They have to let you wear your hat on the plane, and they stack tightly, I believe. So hat-gifts all around on return home.
Another village does pottery and another does bronze (a brazen village?). Doesn't that alone justify a lengthy stay in Hoi An?

Rhkk has trouble with verbs. Should it be 'put' or 'putted'? 'Hung' and 'hanged'? So he just leaves them out.

Check this report I was just looking at, Will:
