3rd- 5th

Nha Trang

time seems to be going so quickly! on the 3rd we arrived early in Nha trang. A lot more touristy than Ho Chi Minh and even some people on holidays! not somewhere I would have ever thought to go on holiday!

this is a photo of our room for the 2 nights we were in Nha Trang! it was so nice, probably the nicest we had stayed in so far.

this is the beach in Nha trang, on the first day when we arrived it was nice weather! very windy beach though! but very good for watersports. Lots of people kite surfing, it was most impressive but we decided just to watch from the comfort of our sun loungers! Spent the majority of the day on the beach and then decided to go out for an early meal as we had arrived so early!

the next day (4th) we had a day out on a boat trip! the weather was rubbish much like in England! We did go swimming but once you got out it was actually cold! We visited a couple of islands, the first to visit an aquarium which was quite good! a few turtles and sharks but bit sad that then didn't have a huge area to swim in! The second to go snorkelling, which was quite fun but we saw a lot less fish that we thought we would! maybe they had all gone to find some sun, very sensible fish! the 3rd was to stop off for lunch and entertainment, the food was amazing and the entertainment was great, singing songs from different countries to make you feel less home sick! Then we had the floating bar, a new experience for both of us! sitting in a rubber ring in the suprisingly cold water drinking cocktails! yum!
There was another island that we visited but there wasnt much to do and there wasn't even any sun to sunbath so we all sat on the boat! A really nice bunch of people! When we returned we all agreed to go for a drink which was really nice! Felt very late when we went to bed as everyone had started drinking at about 5.30!! A good day had by all!

The 5th was another day spent by the beach, the weather being less good but still managed to catch the sun a bit! we did a bit of shopping to fill some time and then got ourselves ready for a long sleeper bus journey to Hoi An at 6.30! heard lots of good things about it so looking forward to it! Getting on the sleeper bus though it didn't seem like it would be the most comfortable journey! at least this one we could stretch our legs out but there wasn't a lot of room at the sides! Could be an interesting 12 hour journey trying to sleep!

Lots of familiar places in Vietnam - looks like you're getting around a lot (and some more photos too!) We will miss you this weekend in Devon for Grandpa's 80th (but travelling around SE Asia a lot more interesting and fun!).
