In addition to Bangkok and the Thai beach resort of Pattaya, I went to Ho Chi Minh City, Danang, Na Trang, and Haiphong.
I suppose they have given him about fifteen pounds in Haiphong for that little lot.
Haiphong is an attractive town of some twenty thousand inhabitants, of whom perhaps one thousand are Europeans.
There is one through train daily each way between Haiphong and Yunnan-fu.
On our way to Haiphong the vessel stopped at the island of Hainan and anchored about three miles off the town of Hoi-hau.
The working dress of Haiphong was full, long, square-cut trousers over which fell a sort of prolonged shirt slashed to the waist.
