Pleasant Surprises : Nha Trang

I love pleasant surprises, like Nha Trang. When I venture into a new country or city I sometimes have this preconceived idea of what it will be like. What I had for Vietnam was more of what Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta were like. I definitely did not expect golden sandy beaches and water sports.

Well Nha Trang, you sure do surprise.

Vlog #14: Contiki big Indochina Adventure: Nha Trang, Vietnam

Nha Trang, Vietnam

Lucky us we got to spend 2 days in Nha Trang, so for one of the days we hung out on a Vietnamese boat listening to tunes, swimming in the water and eating a fantastic lunch.

Boat Concert- Nha Trang, Vietnam

Boat Concert- Nha Trang, Vietnam-3

There was even a live band playing; they tied three boats together and made a makeshift stage on the middle boat. There they played some Vietnamese songs but mainly cover songs from North American bands. At one point they had a karaoke session in which they invited people from various countries up and played a “theme song” most related to their country.

Jet Ski - Nha Trang, Vietnam-2

Later in the afternoon we got a chance to do some watersports, at a ridiculous cheap rate. For 450 VND, which equals about $20 USD,  we got a jet ski rental. Totally worth it! Krista and I had a wicked awesome time and I learned how to do donuts on a jet ski- BONUS!
