We arrived in Nha Trang to find that it was incredibly busy due to a week long festival going on - we looked at about 15 guesthouses (which were all full!) until we found one near the centre. To cut costs, we shared with Simon and Scarlett, so paid a quarter of the price!
Nha Trang is very nice, but very busy. One day I went to the mineral baths with 6 other people (Jack said it wasn't his thing!) and it was excellent, really relaxing. You sit in a mud bath for 30 minutes, then have a mineral shower which sprays everywhere, then a boiling hot soak in the tub! It felt really good, but there was no cold water there, it was only hot water so couldn't get refreshed till we got back home!
Jack and I went diving, our first dives since doing our PADI course. We had 2 dive sites, both very different. The first one, the visibility was really poor, but we got to go through caves etc. Jack panicked going through the cave and used a lot of his air and had to buddy breathe for the rest of the first dive! On the second dive it was only 12 metres we went to (the first one was 19 metres) and the visibility was excellent. There was lots of colour, loads of fish and we saw eels - the guide was feeding the eels, it was really cool.
We left Nha Trang to head for Hoi An on an overnight bus - 12 hours! It was really uncomfortable. The girl sitting in front of me decided to recline her seat right back just as I was taking a swig of water, and the bottle slammed into my teeth! At least she didnt recline her chair for the rest of the journey because she felt bad!
We arrived in Hoi An at 6.30am the next day (see next blog!).....
