Hong Kong & Vietnam Day 10

We originally drove to Nha Trang from Saigon. It was a 10hr drive. We were not going to sit in the car for another 10hr ride back so we decided to buy flights back to Saigon. Economy seats were all sold out so we had to buy business class. It was about $100 not bad for business class at all. Nha Trang is about 270 miles from Saigon.

We woke up to grab breakfast at the the Hotel before we checked out.

They had quite a spread. They had Vietnamese, Chinese, and American cuisines. I grew up eating sunny side up eggs with pepper,soy sauce, and some toasted bread. It never gets old.

So the driver picked us up and dropped us off at the Nha Trang Airport.

Hanging out in the lounge waiting for our flight. The airport is tiny and at the time we were there I think they were only using 1 or 2 terminals.

Some pictures from our take off. Nha Trang is a beautiful place. It was totally worth the visit. I'm glad we drove there from Saigon because it let us see the country side while we were at it. If I ever go back I would opt to fly, but as a first timer I would say take the drive.

The flight was really short. I think like 45mins. We landed and headed to our hotel. Eden's friend that used to work with him in the States Duc had moved to Saigon and Eden had not seen him since he moved there. He booked us a room at A&Em

Vincom Center is a mall with some High End stores. When we went they doing a bit of construction so not all the store were open.

Our hotel lobby look out into the streets.

So this bathroom was really interesting. The glass is frosted but you can practically see through it. Two guys sharing a room. Taking a poop or showering is going to be awkward. LOL.

After checking in we headed to Pho 2000. We were told that place is pretty good. So we tried it.
snapixel
It was good. This was our first bowl of Pho so I can't say it was the best, but it did hit the spot.

After lunch we crashed at our hotel for a bit. Duc met up with us at our hotel and he took us out to a day spa. We spent several hours there just relaxing. I left my camera at the hotel so I don't have any pictures for the rest of today, but after the spa we headed out to a Karaoke bar for some drunk singing. Son was coming down with something so after the Karaoke bar he headed back to the hotel and we headed to Club MZ. It was this really neat bar that had live music. The band was covering American music and they were really good and covering all sorts of American songs that I was into.

That's it for today. Eden only has a few days left in Saigon. He's heading back home a few days before us. So we are going to live it up until then. More to come tomorrow.
