I bought an under-water housing for taking pictures when diving before the start of the trip. We do our first dive post PADI in Nha Trang. The visibility is not great but ok, 10 metres. We see some pretty little fish and nice coral. The camera and under-water housing works a treat. We cant wait now to get to Thailand and Malaysia to do some more.

The day before we go on the most random of boat trips. There's some westerners on the boat but it's mainly Vietnamese. We sail around the islands off Nha Trang and do some snorkelling. Then the crew get a guitar, a couple of mics and a make shift drum kit made of bamboo and plastic barrels and pots. The vietnamese love their singing and kareoke and they go wild for the band who turn out to be pretty good. I join them to do the worst version of yellow submarine ever. The next thing in the itinerary is the floating bar. One of the crew jumps out into the sea in a dingy with bottles of wine and some pineapple. You have to jump in yourself, grab a inflatable ring, to get a free drink. Such a random day but great fun.

We also get a little culture in by visiting Po Nagar. They are hindu, Charm, Towers situated at the top of Nha Trang giving a good view over the city. Again we really enjoy but feel a bit sorry for the cyclo driver who has to peddle both of us there.
