Chilling on the beach in Nha Trang
I totally get it now when people say that they are 3 weeks to 1 month behind in their blog. There is so much to see and to do that you really need to just stay in for a day to update your travelblog. Let me go on with Nha Trang. To get to Nha Trang I booked an open (sleepers)bus ticket HCMC-Nha Trang-Hoi An. It allows you to hop on and off in these 3 cities on the date you prefer. Advantage is that you travel by night so it saves you an extra night of accomodation. Before booking anything, do go around and compare prices. Don’t go for cheap cheap, as they might not be too hygienic. Heard some creepy stories about cockroaches on the bus. My bus HCMC-Nha Trang was OK. It didn’t had a toilet, though the agency told us the opposite, but the bus did made a toilet stop every 3 hours.
Tuya, who I met in HCMC, was also in Nha Trang. Actually for the rest of my Vietnam trip we pretty much sticked together. She became a really good girlfriend. 😉 Nha Trang is known for as a partycity. I met some people that indeed only came here to party. Is that the reason why so many Russians find their way here to? After that almost 10h busride I just wanted to relax so together with another couple we went to an egg mud bath resort. Sorry, no pictures of muddy me as I didn’t want to have mud in my camera. Afterwards we bought a bottle of Dalat red wine and cracked it on the beach, chilling with the waves on the background.
The next 2 days were pretty much the same scenario besides I did 1 sightseeing walk to the Long Son Pagoda. We wanted to rent a bicycle but couldn’t agree on a good price so we ended up on the beach again with wine and UNO.
Before we left Nha Trang for Hoi An I went for another blind massage. The guy cracked all my bones. It was fantastic!
