Nha Trang is one of the most developed beach towns in Vietnam, the kind of place we generally steer clear of. It happens that it’s also a good way to break up a very long bus journey from Central Vietnam to Saigon and the Mekong Delta, so we disregarded our inner masochists and booked a ticket.
Once again we found that there is a reason this place is popular. It’s beautiful, there’s lots to do and it occupies a great location. We spent 3 days here, eating well, soaking up the rays, and checking out pagodas. Another bonus of a busy area in Vietnam is that you’re never very far from a custom tailor. Val got two new bathing suits and it made her surprisingly happy. In fact, I’m still a little jealous of that tailor… 🙂
