Vietnam trip 08- Nha Trang

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!)

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

Thi Island is populated by monkeys and we got to feed them. They were very cute but sometimes very rude & cheeky indeedy

    Oh, I fed monkeys in Vietnam, too! My aunt gave one of them a bubble-gum and the monkey really was chewing on it for a long time like a human… @.@

    I think I was never in Nha Trang though… Oh, I want to make a trip with my bf and show him Vietnam! :)

    I don’t think I’ve ever been to the beaches in Vietnam. Since I couldn’t swim, my mom made sure I never went anywhere near the ocean…

    I have never been to Vietnam and had no idea how it looked. But wow, its so beautiful!! :) I really like the beach photos and going to the hot springs must have been really relaxing and fun. The light show photo is really cool too :)

    Those are pretty cool pictures and the quality of the pictures are nice too. The way you take photographs aren’t amateur-ish or anything. Good job! :)

    BTW I have a new layout up plus a simple contest, I hope you’ll find the time to check it out and join! :)

    Man, that’s an amazing blog note. I enjoyed watching those pictures a lot. Maybe because I love traveling?

    I could actually feel the atmosphere of Vietnam. Even though I dislike Asia and countries included, it looks like a nice place. Too bad you’ve got to show no picture of local people. It would spicy up a bit this note!

    Anyhow, I really like your site. :) You reminded me of the beauty of the world.

    Take care!

    Oh my God i’m so sorry I couldn’t fix your image problems! I’m really not the best when these sorts of issues so i’m really sorry.

    Meanwhile Vietnam does look extremely beautiful. My friend recently went on holiday there and said it was really beautiful, but then she said she sleep on the ground of a shack for a few days as accomodation or something and i’m like I will reconsider going… i’m all for budget accomodation but I want a mattress!
