Boat trip in Nha Trang

After another day in Ho Chi Minh City we took an overnight train to the beach town of Nha Trang. Overnight train in Vietnam was a fun experience. We had prepared ourselves for it with a huge bottle of cheap vodka.

The vodka did its job, and it remains a mystery where or who from I got this train conductor uniform... Apparently I had stolen some poor guy's clothes. But looks like we had fun!

We arrived in Nha Trang early morning. We couldn't check in at the hotel yet, so we decided to go and cure our hangovers with some local pho for breakfast. Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup, often served with beef or chicken, herbs and lime, and traditionally had for breakfast. I absolutely loved it, and had it most mornings.

After breakfast we went to see the beach, which looked stunning in the morning sun. The same day we went for a boat trip to the nearby islands. We soaked up the sun and visited an aquarium, where we saw some pretty ugly fish!

On the boat we had entertainment, the local Backstreet Boys were performing. Or that's what they said.

The highlight of my boat trip was definitely when everybody jumped off the boat with blow-up rings and they had a floating bar. With FREE drinks! I could hardly believe it since more often than not, the Vietnamese like ripping off tourists. But this time there was no catch, the sun was shining, music was playing and drinks were flowing... Good times!
