Where I stayed
Diva Guesthouse Nha Trang
Read my review - 5/5 stars

Flag of Vietnam  , Khanh Hoa,
Friday, November 2, 2012

We arrived in Nha Trang ridiculously early, about 6:30am, once off the bus we were greeted by the usual unwelcome sight of touts - even more unwelcome having woken up just five minutes beforehand. We headed towards the beach for accommodation, as soon as we could see the sea we also saw elderly Vietnamese women doing exercise routines near the sea front and Vietnamese people having an early morning dip. An elderly man approached us, asking where we were from and did we have a hotel. He told us that the cheaper places were back the way we had just come from. We found a cafe to have a cuppa in, and due to my inability to drink piping hot liquid, Kate went and had a hunt for a room knowing full well that when she returned I would still have the same cup of tea in front of me! On our way to a hotel that Kate had found, we decided to check out one that had previously been shut and we were both glad that we did. It was easily one of the best rooms we had stayed in and all for $8, it was like a hotel room more than one of a guesthouse. We got ready for the beach and went and found some breakfast. The beach was long and arced like a horseshoe, everything seemed to be perfect until we tried to enter the sea. If we were lucky and timed it right we could walk straight in but most if the time you would catch a huge wave straight in the face, we rarely ventured into the sea!

We stayed in Nha Trang for a week and we went to the beach everyday apart from the one where we decided to visit a mud spa. We caught a minibus over with two English girls and later found out that one was from Torquay. We told her where we were from and she said that she loved Totnes - she obviously had something wrong with her! The spa was excellent and was only £5. We had to shower in warm mineral water before getting in a large bath to pour mud all over ourselves, then had the option of sunbathing before showering the mud off and then we lounged by a large warm mineral swimming pool.

The only other interesting thing we did, apart from sunbathing, was going for a night out. We had bought a bottle of vodka for £2 in Hanoi but hadn't got round to drinking it. We finished the vodka off before going to to a bar that had two alcoholic drinks for one all night, we got a bit merry and I also found out how rubbish at pool Kate is!
