Nha Trang

Nha Trang was a beach town with quite a few Russians. There are a lot of Russian people that live there and it is a big Russian tourist destination. They even have special menus for Russians at restaurants. A lot of writing on signs was in vietnamese, english and Russian. I never figured out why or how Nha Trang became such a big Russian town/tourist destination, but to be honest I don’t really care. Despite the large amount of Russians, I did enjoy the nice beach and people I met there.

My first hostel in Nha Trang I stayed 2 nights, but I didn’t like the vibe so I moved to a new one called “I Home Hostel” and loved it.

Haha true story

The owner took us out a few times for dinner. We would spend nights together having drinks and listening to some of the staff play the guitar.

The hostel owner Andy took us out to dinner. We had an awesome time!

Too many body parts in this stew to remember. I’ll leave it to your imagination.
Having my first frozen beer! They are amazingly refreshing!
Having hot pot! You just throw in all the noodles, meat and vegetables and cook it all up at the table. So fun!

I was walking down the street my first night when I stopped to listen to some guys playing music on the street. I ended up sitting there for a while listening to them play and sing. I chatted with them for a bit and they invited me to come hear their band play at a coffee shop a couple days later. I took up there offer and was the only non-vietnamese person in the coffee shop. After they finished playing at the coffee shop they took me back to the street where I met them the first time. We spent the rest of the night listening to music and singing songs on the street. It was such an awesome experience!

  1. Greetings from SF!! I’ve loved reading your posts! Glad your out there seeing the world. Reminds me of my travels when I was your age… Inspiration to get out there and do it again. I liked the frozen beer pic, when I was there it was luke warm Singha. Not refreshing.
    Cheers, Denise


  2. Vancy Pants!! Are you going to teach English somewhere? Or are you moving on out of SE Asia? When I was there, there was no internet, or cell phones,only paper airline tickets and travel agents… Wow how times have changed but, remarkably still the same! Cheers, Denise
