... doused us with the mud and pinched my friend's nose teasing her for catching the sun. Did I leave relaxed? No. But was I smiling? Yes. The highlight of Nha Trang was meeting a local photographer who took us out to the salt mines at 4AM to watch the women work the salt fields. They spend hours repeatedly filling baskets with heavy wet salt from the water-logged field, balancing them over their shoulder and carrying them off. It's backbreaking work for just ...
... many apartments in Nha Trang and loved the idea of having our own kitchen so that we could cook, so we promptly found a lovely apartment 2 minutes from the beach and with its own balcony for 12 pounds a night, sold.
We dumped our bags and headed to the beach which was lovely, I don't know what the people we had met were talking about! Sure, there were plenty of Russians around but they weren't doing anything offensive. They were funny to ...
... Cu Chi Tunnels. The tunnels were created by the Viet Cong to sneak around and launch surprise attacks on the American GIs. They were really quite genius. Well-hidden entrances, kitchens vented through dirt mounds and only used when the smoke would disguise itself in the mist. Three levels for navigating, living, eating, etc. The tunnels were quite small, too small for GIs to fit through. The tunnels were widened both vertically and horizontally for tourists ...
... He got ****** because he had to open his crabs himself ... It was not very difficult. He continued to insult us for about an hour, and then seemed truely shocked that we didn't want to catch up with for a drink later.
We took our pick from about a dozen seafood restaurants and ordered swimmer crab in tamarind sauce, grilled squid and steamed rice. This area is renowned for its seafood and it definitely lived up to its reputation. The food was ...
... story short we arranged to go on a bike ride in the morning so we picked up two Trek mountain bikes at 8 a.m. and headed off along the coast. It is surprisingly comfortable riding around despite the heat and I would recommend it as a great way to get out of the centre and out to quieter parts. I would suggest though that you start early and finish before 1 or 2 p.m. to avoid the most sweltering part of the day.

Honey Moon in Vietnam
I´m portuguese and I´ve been at this fantastic resort in last September on the last days of my honey moon.
We´ve spent great moments and it was very relaxing.
People were very nice and gentil, food in Vietnam was the best I ever tryed, places we´ve been were amasing, ....
Maby we´ll come back one day....
I did stay in this haven in August last year, with friends of mine, 2 Nights. All begins on the mainland, a small tender comes and pick you up, the service starts from there...sodas, fresh water, towels. Once you arrive on the island (which by the way is not); the welcome is sincere and not fake, your "private butler" comes to greet you and (the "detail", she learnt a few words french in order to help us ! This is a real "must"). We did stay in a spa villa on the hill ; the rooms are very nice, all material used to built the hotel are local ( wood, fabrics.. ). The private pool was outstanding, you were overlooking the resort and sea...There is nothing bad to say about this resort, everything is well thought(the time difference applied when you arrive, which gives you the feeling to enjoy more your stay, even if the main reason is certainly to save electricity power ).
The setting of the Hideaway is really stunning and the accommodation is of a very high standard. The whole place feels almost empty with a good mix of nationalities. I disagree with the previous reviewer as I thought the food was excellent. It would get a bit repetetive if you were there for too long but we stayed for 5 nights and had lots of variety. The prices are expensive for Vietnam but the quality, presentation ,setting and service in my opinion were very good. You can walk along the lovely beach every morning for breakfast and the whole place just feels so chilled. I had an excellent massage and the yoga class on the beach was a great experience with a very good teacher from NZ.
Beautiful with limitations
My wife and I stayed at the Evason in a Beach Villa for four nights in November as part of a two-week trip through Vietnam.
Although the accomodation seems to be very simple it is one of the most beautiful spots we have seen on all our trips to far. Service, especially the private butler, is excellent. The only downside was the quality of food: comparing the prices (USD 35 for the evening buffet + drinks) and quality to normal prices and quality in Vietnam this is clearly to expensive and since the Evason is in a remote location (only accesable by boat) you are stuck with the limited choices that the restaurant offers.
My wife and I stayed at the Evason Hideaway Ninh Van Bay (Nha Trang) at the begining of March 2005 as part of a three week trip to Vietnam. We have travelled throughout the world and stayed at the finest, most expensive resorts, hotels and getaways. This is among the finest that we've stayed at, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a idyllic escape and opportunity to connect or re-connect with their loved one.
My wife and I stayed here for one night in Aug, 2005 having spent four nights at the sister Ana Mandara resort. Having stayed at many five star resorts around the world, this rates as one of the most unique and enjoyable experiences. It is about to be discovered, so get there quick!
There is nothing else: only the sea, your pool, warm wind and that's it. My wife and I went there for 2 nights for a relaxing break between the frenzy of Saigon and Hanoi. We got what we were looking for: an afternoon and a day of laziness.
After being picked up at the airport there is a 40 minute journey to the private rest area where you are served a drink to freshen up, then you are taken aboard a private speed boat to the resort. When you first glimpse the villas from the bay the resort does not look like much as it blends in with the surroundings so well but you realise its beauty during your stay. We stayed at one of the beach villas although had considered the water villa (advised against it by our travel agent), and now I am glad we did not choose the water villa - you have to be rowed to and from the villa every time you want to get to the main beach.
I was moody before getting on the speed boat on my way to Evason Hideaway. But from the moment i stepped on this private piece of land that seemed like an island, i stood still for quite long feeling like Robinson Croussos in 5 star facilities! The bay is tranquil and beautiful, the rooms very spacious and give the sense on absolute privateness. Sleeping on the terrace bed in the night was so enjoyable watching the sea anytime you would open your eyes!
My partner and I stayed at the Evason Hideaway for a week in March. We had booked a hilltop villa, but had to spend the first night in a beach villa, the excuse being: "hilltop villa so nice, everybody want them". That about describes the attitude of the management; staff was very nice, but virtually untrained, English speaking skills almost none.
