The Vietnam Seaside   Leave a comment

We stayed in Nha Trang for a week, diving, swimming, dodging the rain and generally doing very little else. It’s a nice little resort frequented by mainly Aussies, New Zealanders and oddly Russians cos it’s so close to home (like Brits travelling to Spain). The bay we sailed out of to get to our dive sites was fantastic. There is a pleasure park on an island opposite the main bay called Vinpark accessed by cablecar. A new shopping mall provided me with the opportunity to buy new sunglasses. The town planners had the forsight not to overcrowd the beach area. As a result there are only two bars (both with their own beach/lounger areas). The rest is lovely green gardens. A nice buffer zone with the main road, masking all sound. A leisurely breakfast overlooking the beach on our none dive days was great, even with the rain.  One evening we ate fresh crab on the beach prepared by a Vietnamese family.  It was amazing.  The family were friendly and grateful for the money.  It was nice to help real people make a living and not the corporate entities for once.
