This blog post featured not only the sound of the Rooster rather a few tips that can make your life easier if you thinking about making holiday in Hoi An. If you just here for the sound just scroll down to the bottom. 🙂

We are finally back in Vietnam! What a fun trip! First, we took the car from Sioux City, Iowa to Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, we took the plane to Atlanta and we arrived after two hours. 20 minutes earlier than expected. From Atlanta, we also flew with Delta into Seoul. The estimated time was 15 hours and 20 minutes and we arrived over one hour earlier. In Seoul, we flew with Korean Airlines to Danang, Vietnam and arrived around 10:30 pm. In Danang, our Taxi was already waiting for us and the drive to Hoi An is around 30 minutes and cost about 250000 Dong what is 9 Euro or 11 US Dollar.
For the record. I recorded ambiance sound at the Atlanta Airport and Seoul also I recorded different Room Tones, Announcement and toilet flush sounds in the planes. Coming up soon. Oh, by the way, there will be an upcoming sound pack of many toilet flushes from all our journey starting in Orange County by car from the drive across the county until now! So stay tuned for that!

In this blog post I also want to include tips how to get a cheap taxi, where to get a Sim Card with Internet, the best ATM with no Fee and also how to find your own apartment while staying in Danang or Hoi An!

THE MORNING ROOSTER

But for now, Imagine you haven’t slept for over 32 hours, you arrive at the Hotel and all that you want is taking a shower and go sleep! I was in a deep sleep until something pulled me out of my dream! It was around 4:45 am and at this time, the night was over! A Rooster and his other friend started talking to each other!!!
But my first thought wasn’t like “Shut Up”! No, it was more like “Where is my sound recorder”? There is just a tiny window when the rooster starts to cry “cock-a-doodle-doo”!

Why is that?

Normally people who waking up turning Radios or TVs on and have the windows and doors wide open. Your “clean” audio is done! So I found the recorder and started recording from inside the hotel room. Now you know how loud it sounds when the door was closed. Then I opened the door and went on the balcony and recorded the sound for almost six minutes. You also have the sound of an air conditioner from the neighbor in the recording. I had no time to set up my other microphone so I just recorded with the Zoom H6.

Did you hear that kind of creepy “crunching” sound?

While I was recording the rooster, another sound came into my ears! “What is that”? First I thought it could be a dog. a cat or another animal who walks around the bushes but it was to dark. I couldn’t see anything! I walked from left to right on the balcony and tried to locate where this sound is coming from. I came closer to the source and then I saw A shadow moving around and I could hear water splashing. Then I saw a man sitting in the dark with a bucket. He must have cleaning dishes and himself with water and dishrag I guess at 4:45 am. I include this sound too because I think it sounds really cool!

So now you can scroll down if you just want the audio. Now I am going to talk about tips and tricks what makes your life easier if you are thinking about making holiday in Hoi An!

Where to get Cash in Hoi An?

Let’s talk about cash first! In Hoi An you will find tons of ATMs but most of them have fees and you can not get so much cash out of it! Let’s say you need 17 Million Dong what is 630 Euro or 750 Dollar then I highly recommend you using the ATM from the Military Bank because these ATMs allow you to take out a lot more cash than other ATMs.

The Military Bank ATM Hoi An

A great thing is that you don’t need to use Visa, Master or other Credit Cards. You can use your Maestro Card, but make sure that your Bank knows that you travel to Vietnam. You can approve countries online to your Bank Account and you are able to get cash without a Credit Card on certain ATMs. Also, and that is the best about the Military Bank. There is no Fee!
If you are American I recommend you to apply for a Charles Schwab Bank Account! Worldwide no Fees so you should really look into that if you want to avoid fees on ATMs. Plus the Service online and in the Bank are outstanding! I can tell you this from our own experience online and from one Bank in Orange County!

Here is the exact location of the Bank in Hoi An.

Where to get a Sim Card for easy Internet Access in Hoi An?

As next I highly recommend you get a Sim Card at the Gioididong Store or Mobile World Supermarket. If you arrive at the Airport you see signs with “Get a Sim Card, Unlimited Data”! Don’t buy them. They promise you have “unlimited” Data but after 500MB or 1GB, they slow you down. We made this mistake. But only Once and never again. So learn from our mistake and go into a real store.

Mobile World Supermarket Hoi An
How much did we pay?
The store is very busy but people are very helpful and you get a seat pretty fast. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. If you tell them that you need a Prepaid Simcard with Internet they understand and you are set. They have different monthly prepaid plans and we always choose the one with 5 GB Data and with around 60 minutes national phone calling for emergencies.
We paid for that 300000 Dong what is 11 Euro or 13 US Dollar.

Here is the exact location where to you can find one of the stores in Hoi An (same street then Military Bank).

Where to get a motorbike?

Do you like to drive around on your own? That is perfect and makes so much fun! The first what you need to do is getting an International Driving License. If you American go to AAA. It cost around 20 US Dollar and is valid for one year! As a German, Swiss or Austrian you just got to your “Strassenverkehrsamt” I am not sure how much I paid in Germany, but I think it was around 16 Euro and the IDL is valid for three years!
If you have this in your pocket you can choose if you like to rent or buy one. We always rent bikes but if you want to buy one check out and join the Facebook Group “Vietnam Backpackers Sales.”

Where to rent a motorbike in Hoi An

If you want to rent a bike and you are in Hoi An you can use my experience and write a message to Nhung Ho on Facebook.
She has all kinds of motorbikes and the monthly rent for a good bike is around 1 Million Dong for one month. I paid 1.5 Million for a stronger Yamaha with 150 ccm.
One Million Dong is right now around 37 Euro or 44 US Dollar. No Deposit or Contract needed. Easy going and when I had any trouble with the bike I just returned the bike and she gave me a new one. So if you like to go the easy route just contact her on Facebook and let her know that you need a bike with the dates.
Another way for rent motorbikes is if you join the Facebook Group “Danang Hoi An Expats” or “Hoi An Expats” and ask if anybody rents motorbikes?

Where to stay in Hoi An? Hotel or Apartment??

If you haven’t decided yet we always stay the first few days in Hotels. Make sure to compare prices with Agoda or Hotel.com. Fees are different so sometimes Agoda is cheaper, sometimes Hotel.com adn this for the same Hotels.
If you like to have your own place with a kitchen and more privacy then you should also join the Facebook Group “Danang Hoi An Expats” or “Hoi An Expats” for apartments.
We just made a post two days ago and got already ten offers and places we could visit.
It is important for us to stay in a Hotel the first days so we have no pressure looking into apartments. We went to one place already and we left. The mold smell was already in the walls because of the horrible flood one month ago in Hoi An. Many houses have wet walls so keep this in mind if you want to rent a place near Hoi An City Center.

Okay, these are enough tips for now but I promise you Guys that I will talk and write more about the experience that made our life easier in the upcoming sound blog posts but now enjoy and download the sound Cock-A-Doodle-Doo from a Rooster in Vietnam!

A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing.
