Nha Trang, Vietnam
After Hoi-An, Nha Trang
was our next stop. BEACH here we come! Beautiful scenic
drive along the bay from the airport. About an hour or so
later we arrived to our hotel which was located just across
the street from the beach. We had a wonderful suite overlooking
the waterfront promenade and the sea. It couldn't be a better
place for us to get some work done and also get a
small break from the normal "city touring".
Nha Trang is a very famous
vacation spot for the Vietnamese and has one of the most
beautiful bays in the entire country (actually Nha Trang
Bay has been voted to have one of the most beautiful bays
in the entire world). Although we didn't swim or lay on
the beach too much, we definitely enjoyed the partying in
the bars with fun, eccentric people, and quite well prepared
foods - fresher seafood most likely not possible. So needless
to say, we definitely enjoyed the rest and relaxation, especially
as our next stop was Saigon/Ho Chi Min City, quite a bit
of difference between the two cities...
'Nha Trang Bay
We had an absolutely gorgeous view from our
hotel room, overlooking Nha Trang Bay.
If you have to do some work, this isn't such
bad office, is it?!!!
The park just across the street from us was
the hang out during the evenings. Lots of
people and actually a few cook-outs on the beach as well.
Umm, the smell of bbq.
One evening, we actually set our alarm clock for 3 in the
morning so we could go
out and watch the Leonid meteor shower (supposedly the strongest
in November), but of course, this was the night when there
were clouds in the sky so
we didn't get to see it. Darn - it would have been spectacular
Out & About
Had a lovely dinner at Truc Linh fish
restaurant. Johann asked what fresh fish they had, and
they literally fished it out of the fish tank and
brought it to our table in the net so we
could see! Fresher fish I don't think you can get
unless you cook right on the
making the actual catch. Yummy!
Just another bike ride. Hopefully this girl's
luggage weigh less than it looks like...
Yikes, hope she has good balance?!
And this is Johann's exercise for the day.
Nothing says it like sipping a tropical drink
on a lovely beach in Nha Trang.
