These tourists were on their way to explore the central region but were stuck in Hội An Town due to super typhoon Noru.

“We are helping a little bit to clean up the bridge so the water can go to the other side of the city, so the city can be clean again,” a tourist said.

“We’re on the first day in the city. It’s a very beautiful city and we want to help people as they are very kind to us, so we want to do something back to them,” another tourist said.

The floodwater starts receding, but forecast to increase in the next few days. Photo
