Na Trang - 36hr stop over

After a long bus ride, we arrived in Nha Trang, a place we did not intend to go, but that allowed us to get part way to Hanoi which was about a 30 hour trip.

We had no hostel booked, and no idea what we were going to do while we were there, but as luck would have it, we were dropped off in front of a hostel providing a double room with a balcony for $10. Without hesitation we agreed to board there and decided that we would stay for 2 nights, giving us some time to relax before the train journey we were dreading....

For the two days we wandered around the city, walked the beach, ate good food, and drank a few cold beers. We were able to use the time to keep things low-key and save some money. The weather was amazing, so we spent most of the time out of doors, enjoying the sun and topping up our tans.
