I’ve found my favorite beach so far! Na Trang is another beautiful seaside town that is just now starting to attract the tourist trade. Its not hard to imagine why. This place has absolutely everything…beach vendors selling fresh fruits and seafood, warm water, comfy chairs, and friendly locals. It’s got a great nightlife, mostly concentrated at a local bar called the Australian Sailing Club. There’s a great party here ever night, and I’ve been really enjoying it with the company of the two girls I’ve been hanging out with. We went diving the other day and found some great areas. Not nearly as good as Thailand diving, but still a lot of fun, and extremely inexpensive.
One of the most fun things we’ve found here is a day long boat cruise/booze fest. There are a bunch of companies in town that for about 15 bucks will take you out into the bay for a day of fun in the sun. There is unlimited cheap wine, fresh fruit, flotation devices, and snorkeling gear. The three of us went out and just got hammered! It was one of the best days on an ocean I’ve ever spent. Of course we paid for it the next day. Steph and I rented a motorcycle which didn’t really help the pounding in my head and explored the town. There are some old Chan temples outside of town that we went to see, and then we just explored the area. We found a cool little restaurant in a small fishing village nearby, and while walking on the beach we found the neatest little house perched on a huge boulder. No one was home, but it was one of my favorite sights in Vietnam so far.
