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!

It took us two hours just to get out of the city, as the roads snaked around each other and mopeds weren't allowed on all of the passes. The traffic was manic and it was a baptism of fire - we hoped the roads would empty once we were clear of the city. They didn't. In the end it was an 8 hr journey wrought with crazy traffic, lethal driving and lots of emergency braking. We were part of the masses of mopeds, buses, trucks, ...
Not long after we got into our hotel room, I got a message from Kat saying she was in the hostel opposite ours, literally 10 feet away! We met outside our hostel for a fag, then she went to shower and we hung around until she was ready. Kat had been travelling from Hanoi on a motorbike with an American bloke called John, who was in the hostel with her. We all went out to have some food, and found a nice little place with child size chairs to have some noodles, and caught ...
After Saigon, me and the Honda headed for Mui Ne, which is a small town on the south, east coast of Vietnam. Once i was out of Saigon, it was pretty much follow the main highway AH-1 all the way to Phan Thiet. Once in Phan Thiet, i had to come off the main road and head west for a short time before arriving in Mui Ne. The trip went well apart from the fact the bike was kangaroo-ing up the hills. I put this down to the carburetta needing a clean. ...
... my arms and resting on top of my big bag and then I was hugging my day pack with my left arm while holding him with my right. It was as if we were a family of 4. One kid balancing in the front, dad driving, mom holding onto her baby and then their aunt or grama balancing on the tails of the seat in the back. haha I had new found respect for them doing this on a daily basis and for long distances. I mean we were going perhaps five kilometres to find a hostel ...
... side goes up one by one and where they have squeezed another place in that will be A,B,C etc. so you could have 121 on one side but also the same on the other but a mile or so apart from one another. So having found the place we wanted to go on trip advisor it showed us that it was 2.5km away. So we showed the taxi driver the name and off we went. He didn't know where he was going and asked another taxi driver. Thinking we ...
