The bus to Nha Trang was comfortable...ish. The only complaint would be the lack of air conditioning, though we are learning that we may be too picky and it won't get any better. That being said we made it, and that seems to be the most important part. We arrived at 5 Am, only 7 hours before check in at our hostel. What better to do with that time than sit at Vietnams #1 rated beach, and that we did, until it got unbearably hot by around 11 Am. So we went shoe shopping, or we tried to. It turns out its a large city and given that nobody in it speaks english, big surprise, we got lost... again. In the end we found cheap sandals and got back to our room by check in.
We spent 5 nights and 6 days here, and every second we could was on the beach. The only issue with this was that every day, like clockwork, at 2:30 Pm black clouds covered the city and monsoon rain sent us to the hostel for a few hours. The streets with close to 1 foot curbs were flooded over the top and on to the side walk, and with in an hour turned into small rivers. Amazingly only a few hours later all was dry and it was back to tropical paridise again.
We did not bother to take any valuables to the beach, and locked up our stuff in our room daily. There was one restaraunt called Lanters that was amazing and on our 3rd visit we brought the camera out to take photos of our favorite place. That was the last time we saw it...
