Beachtime rest at Nha Trang

Well our first sleeper bus journey finished at 6.30am - got a few hours of broken sleep & had more than Nath. Woke up to this beautiful sunrise over the ocean as we followed this mountainous coastline. Was beautiful!

Fell off the bus bleary eyed & took the accomodation that was right in front of the bus at the 62 Tran Phu Hotel for $10 a night - had aircon & WIFI! Nath slept until I woke him at 10am & we went over the road to trhe beach & hung out for the next few hours. We paid $2 each to get a mattresss for our beachbed under an umbrella & welcomed some of the hawkers & wished others would go away! Great for food & cold drinks & a massage $5 & got over the book & sunglasses sellers. Water a beautiful temperature, so cooled down as the sun is biting hot! Read & slept - very nice & just what we needed.

Late afternoon hired 2 moto drivers to drive us to the mud baths & around town $5. Convinced Nath to join me for a mineral mud bath which was a bit disappointing as sitting in cold mud is not as much fun as if it had been hot! It really did leave your skin feeling beautiful & soft afterwards.

Pretty town with a fishing village & port area & big rocks in the river, manicured trees all along the beach area & very clean. Some really nice restaurants along the beachfront - The Sailing Club was beautiful but more than we wanted to spend.
