... the fish restaurant of our first evening. Chose our fish, got a cold beer and sat down to wait for him to be cooked - lovely .I caught a glimpse of Roland again but didn't worry as he was heading away from us and was behind Dee so she couldn't see him but guess what happened next ?! I heard a scream that made me jump and saw Dee leap onto her seat ! It took a few seconds for it to sink in but I realised that she had seen Roland's bigger ...
... back so we ended up spending the night in Vung Tao. We were pleasantly surprised by the lack of westerners and the history and charm of the seaside town. Found an awesome sports bar with a wiley Aussie owner. Decided to stay another day. Morning of the 20th we left for mui ne, was a 4.5 hr drive, arrived at noon, an amazing ...
... best part of the day. Later we headed further down the beach and sat on the sand for a bit. I bought a coconut to drink out of from a lady walking along the beach. We then watched a bunch of kite surfers go out onto the water. There are heaps of them here as this beach is famous for its wind. On Tuesday, Christmas Eve, Ross hired a surf board and went for a surf while I sat at a beach front bar and had some ...
... course much more to do in Bangkok, but Saigon felt cleaner, friendlier and cheaper! Crossing the road was one he of an experience though. You just have to keep going while hundreds of motorbikes swerve around you. They're dodging you, rather than the other way round! After Saigon we headed to Mui Ne. We didn't really know much about the place but it was the next stop on the backpacker trail. We stayed in an actual HOTEL which was so ...
We had a lazy morning and then headed out to get breakfast. This turned into lunch when we couldn't find a restaurant serving a breakfast menu and it was 11.15am! We think a lot of the restaurants are linked to resorts so perhaps this is why they don't serve breakfast. The other thing is that because everything is spread along one really long road, there are not that many different restaurants close by, and you could have to walk a really long way if you didn't want to ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSunny Beach Resort Phan Thiet
This is one of our favorite place during our 9 day tour in Vietnam. It has everything a resort should have: two good size pools, private beach and most importantly they serve beautiful breakfast. It was a smart choice to stay here as we were able to relax and rejuvenate. However, a couple things surprised us. One, the receptionist was not very helpful. We asked a few questions regarding getting around the place, she gave very short answers and seemed inpatient. Two was their spa facilities which was by far the worst experience that we have. When Poh and I stepped into their spa facilities, we started to doubt our decision. The facilities looked shabby and the air was musty. Both of us had Aloe Vera facial. I cannot believe they used raw aloe vera and put them on our face. The whole experience was unpleasant, stingy pain and distressing! Would recommend the resort to people but definitely not the spa!
