Nha Trang Tourists

Friday, June 15, 2012

Our Vietnam holiday was over half a year ago but I've been meaning to blog about the remainder of our trip for sometime, just as a reference. And now that our second Vietnam trip is just round the corner I figure I should get cracking with the backlog :)

We were in Nha Trang for a few days, the night we arrived we went out and had the most amazing sashimi ever. Had I not seen the chef pull it out of the fridge in front of us, I would have believed it if they told me they caught it the moment after I ordered it. So fresh, buttery and melt in your mouth! And although that experience was well over six months ago, I can still remember how distinctly exceptional it was, don't you love it when food can leave that effect on you? So good.

The following day, we went on a walk to visit Chong Rock where we got a tour, our guide helped point out how the series of rock piles sort of looked like stuff. I couldn't really make out anything, much like those disappointing "magic eye" things where you have to squint and jiggle your head a little to get it :)

Following a short taxi ride, we visited Champa Pagoda a place of worship. Since we were both in shorts we had to don some monk robes before we were allowed inside.

And to cap off our big touristy day in Nha Trang we went to That Ba to bathe in the mud and for a relaxing foot and body massage. It was such fun, floating about in the mud! Like good old wholesome childlike fun :) We didn't take a camera with us for obvious reasons but I kind of wish I had. And the $8 AUD massage was awesome too, best and cheapest we had for the entire Vietnam trip!
