Nha Trang & Mui Ne - 31st August 2008 @ 1:16 pm «   »

Location: Vietnam : Nha Trang & Mui Ne

Again we had a reservation and checked into the Blue Star Hotel. There was no swimming pool this time, but the beach was about 3 minutes walk away. We only had 1 day in Nha Trang, so we headed straight for the beach where we spent the rest of the morning lazing on the beach chairs taking the occasional dip and fending off countless vendors selling everything from sunglasses to full body massages. As we were leaving we bumped into 2 Australian girls we had met on our Halong Bay trip – Michelle and Lindsey.

We had hoped to do some snorkeling however we found out that we had to take another boat tour to the nearby islands and after our bus night we simply did not have the energy and opted for a afternoon nap instead.

Early the next morning we left again on a sleeper bus to Hoi Chi Minh City (Saigon). However during our lunch stop in Mui Ne we decided to get off the bus and stay the night. Mui Ne is a little town with nothing to do except lay on the beautiful, white sandy beach. For the more adventurous there are watersport options – windsurfing being the most popular. We found a very cheap hotel on the beach close to the bus station and spent our time there sunbathing, swimming and sipping cocktails at a very funky bar right on the beach.

Unfortunately we had to leave this oasis at 14:00 the next afternoon to make our way to Hoi Chi Minh City down south.
