Sorry it's been a long time since I last posted a blog but we've been ever so busy over the past few weeks! So...Nah Trang was beautiful. It is a beach resort with a huge stretch of beach with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas and people willing to charge you a fortune (a relative, 'on a tight budget' amount anyway) to have the pleasure of a day filled with sunbathing, and scuttling across the red hot sand to the sea to cool off. We spent 3 days there, taking a break, as it were, from the long bus journies and making the most of not being in the city envirnoment.
We took a boat tour on our second day to see some of the small island, to snorkel at the reefs and swim beside the boat drinking, what the captain of the boat described as "f***ing minging wine!" at a very loud volume from his floating bar whilst we all circled him in the safety rings from the boat screaming "Yo!' (Cheers!). A truely bizarre experience...and truely awful mulberry wine! We were fed a huge lunch though on the top of the boat, in the blazing sunshine and were taken to a man made beach where we had to pay to have the privilige of sitting on the very small beach.
Sorry I'm going to publish this then get back to it at a later date to fill in the details about South East Asia.
