Garbage and mud need to be cleaned up before the town welcomes APEC visitors this weekend.

Hoi An looked much drier on Wednesday afternoon than two days before, when downpours from Typhoon Damrey flooded half of the ancient town by up to three meters (10 feet).

The water level has fallen by nearly two meters at the 400-year-old Japanese Bridge, which was closed to visitors on Monday.
