I saw some amazing silk embroidery art work, so I visited the factory where they made everything from the silk (yup from the worms) to the amazing artists recreating the pictures from a photo or whatever.
After lunch we went to Hoi An to see the old colonial houses of the Japanese and Chinese traders. One family operates there house as a tourist stop and will take a tea with visitors and show them the house. It was very nice. To arrive to the house we crossed the Chua Cau or the Japanese bridge housing a tiny temple and guarded by a pair of monkey's. The Japanese built the bridge in the 17th century to trade with Vietnamese and Chinese on the other side of the river.
