I went out to a Vietnamese restaurant with my family for lunch today and it reminded me that I still had heaps of photos from our Vietnam trip that I’d like to post. During our visit to Vietnam, we went on a tour of Nha Trang which is about 8-9 hours away from Ho Chi Minh City by train. We rode on a Harry-Potter-style train with cabins and arrived these early in the morning.
Nha Trang is a beautiful place along the coast near the middle of Vietnam. Unfortunately I didn’t get to swim at the beaches because the weather was poor, however I managed to take heaps of beautiful scenery photos which I’m having a terrible time choosing which to put up! There are too many to choose from! (Beware: image heavy!)
We soaked in mineral mud at the Hot Springs
Vinpearl; an island 3km from Nha Trang and you travel by cable car to get there
Vinpearl has a resort, aquarium, amusement park & water park
The water and light show was amazing! (This was the stage where some of the Miss Universe 2008 competition was held)
Nha Trang is surrounded by many islands, each with its own unique appeal and we visited them by boat
Hoa Lan Island
Thi Island is populated by monkeys and we got to feed them. They were very cute but sometimes very rude & cheeky indeedy
Bonaga Temple was built by the Cham people who once inhabitated Vietnam until the Vietnamese people took over.
Long Son Temple
Diamond Bay: where Miss Universe 2008 was held
The Last Emperor’s holiday house
