Hi everyone, we are recieving all the comments and messages that people are leaving and they are great to see so thank you, obviously we cant reply to everyone individually cause it would take forever.
We have spent the last 3 nights in Nha Trang on the coast of Vietnam. We have loved it. We booked our accomodation in advance because we were arriving late from HCMC on a bus. The room was only $9 per night which works out 3 pound each which is not too bad. Nha Trang is excellent the roads weren't as busy as HCMC which was a shame cause me and louise got a bit of an adreniline rush crossing them manic roads, but the beach is lovely there is a long board walk that stretches the whole length of the beach which must be about 2 mile and it is lined with palm trees all the way.
Our first day there we headed straight for the mud baths and hot spring because it came highly recommended from a few different people. We managed to grab a right bargain of a deal, 3.50 pound each that was for transport there and back and entrance for a mud bath, hot springs, swimming pool, jaccuzi and some kind of water fall.
After the SPA session we were absolutely shattered so we had an early night cause we had booked a day trip on the boat which visited four islands, again we got that for 3 pound each and it started from 8.30 till 4. At this point we were loving vietnam its so cheap!
We set sail on our boat trip and headed straight for the top deck to catch some rays, the sun was out at last!! We had our snorkels at the ready and underwater camera. We soon realised that we had the best boat it was a classic party boat with the music blaring we had an MC on the mic who looked like a vietnamese version of goldie. if you dont know who he is google 'goldie' and you will soon get the idea. haha
unfortunately the snorkelling was shockingly bad we couldnt see a thing i soon came back to the boat but louise was more persistant and stayed out a little longer. They cooked us food on the boat and it was the biggest feast we have ever seen. there was shark, squid, rice, tofu, spring rolls, noodles, and this stuff called morning glory which is just some sort of spinach stuff haha i tucked in straight away but i could see louise was struggling with her chop sticks haha just the image of her trying to put food on her plate makes me laugh!! The poor girl would of starved if i didnt help her, louise's food was going every where but in her mouth. Then it became happy hour and goldie came onto stage with his band haha they had electric guitars, base guitar, drums the lot and they started singing it was manic everybody was up on the table dancing. We then had a floating bar in the sea were he was serving shots of paint stripper, well thats what it tasted like. some people had loads but we soon stopped cause it was wretched! the people who had loads soon lost the ability to walk or even speak for that matter haha We managed to get some great photos!
Oh and one more thing which i have been forced to put in.........(louise dictates as i type) Once again adam was so un aware of his surroundings and the camera we use for under water was just laying out and adam put his big fat elbow onto the screen and it smashed so he had to get it fixed at an expense of 30 pound p.s he also left his trainers in the guest house at Nha trang as we left for hoi an.
(Also reluctant to say)....one girl in the guest house turns around to me and says "oh my sister say you have eyes like vietnamese" louise couldnt stop laughing!
That night we ate at this texas place where all the food was imported from the USA, and it was lovely! We went back the following night, probably because of the nice food but for me it was just to get our picture on the wall!!
The last day we went to this Brewery called louisiana brewery were they make there own fruit beer which was good and the locatiion was even better they had a swimming pool looking onto the beach! We also had our first attempt at shuttlecock but it was a disaster they make it look so easy.
This morning we arrived at Hoi An and managed to find guest house for $8 a night and louise is going to buy a dress and im going to buy me a suit!
