Hong Kong & Vietnam Day 9

It's was a beautiful Thursday morning in Nha Trang. Son, Alvin and I woke up early because our driver was going to take us to this beach area where they serve a bunch of seafood. A very nice view to wake up to in the morning.

Brandon passed out from the previous night of drinking.

So the driver picked us up and we headed out on our way.

On our way we passed by Diamond Bay Resort. They still had a lot of signs and ads up promoting the Miss Universe Pageant 2008. They were all deteriorating, but still up.

When we got to this beach area. Which I had no idea where we were at. There were a bunch of man mad shacks/huts selling all kinds of different live seafood. They were just sitting in tubs and tanks there for your picking. We were looking to eat some lobster, but nobody had it available. They had to send out for it.

There were a few dogs roaming around, but this guy looked so cute.

This area had a bunch of tables and chairs to just relax have a beer and dine on seafood. It seemed endless. There weren't that many people around.

We had oysters.

Clams

Not sure what this is, but another shellfish.

And we had lobster. Of course you get to see everything before you eat. I think we had 3.4kg of lobster I believe.

Some more clams I think.

Fried rice.

We were on overkill with seafood. By the end of it all we didn't want anything to do with seafood for the rest of the trip. Everything was fresh and delicious. I think the total for our bill was $100-$120. I forget, but most of the price was due to the lobster. I think they were $20 each. The nice thing about having the driver with us is he would make sure the prices were decent and that we weren't getting ripped off. He went almost everywhere with us other than drinking at night.

Alvin had enough of seafood.

At night we decided to hit the night market near our area.

I loved the street food. Eden was afraid of it cause he has had some bad experiences when he was living in Shenzhen. So most of the time we ate at restaurants, but when we did get a chance to eat the street food it was awesome.

After the night market we just walked around and looked for a restaurant to eat at.Anything that had a nice view of the water.

fried rice and cubed stead. The cube steak was so tender.

Fried soft shell crab

And some type of chicken dish. We also had catfish in a claypot which was a bit disappointing.

After dinner we went to get some massages. There were no rooms available so we went to the night club next door for drinks while we waited for rooms to open.
snapixel
This girl took a liking to Eden. He was running away scared. She was really aggressive.
snapixel
We got our one hour massages which were a whopping $7.50 without tip and after that we headed back home. We were heading back to Saigon tomorrow.

A bit uneventful for this day. We did a bit of drinking, but it was relaxing. Tomorrow we head back to Saigon.
