This is not where the wave in Apocolypse Now was located. Wave is located at Mye Khe beach, ten minutes from the town of Da Nang in Vietnam. Da Nang actually has an international airport, otherwise fly to Saigon or Hanoi and take the bus train or plane to Da Nang, and then taxi or motorbike to My Khe Beach.

surfing vietnam - Shame I missed your post about going to Hoi An in Feb. I went to Ham Tien and Mui Ne and had a few bodywaves before going back to OZ. I come to VN regularly for work, and next trip will check Ap Thien Ai northish from Mui Ne. Will report. Slim
