Nha Trang, Vietnam: A place of MEGA fun!

My time in the blissful, beachside town of Nha Trang in Vietnam is time I’ll always hold dear.

It was one of the funnest times of my life. 

This is probably a more Contiki-oriented post, because the reasons Nha Trang was so fun for me was because of the activities Contiki had organised for us – but you can always find these activities in Nha Trang if you are travelling solo.

First – Mud baths. What an experience – for both the ‘fun’ element, and the ‘nourishing’ element. (It’s always good to take care of your body, right?)

Take a trip to one of the local mud baths/hot springs and have a relaxing afternoon (Would be a great experience for any couples travelling together)

Second – A day out on the water. We went out on a boat trip, where we cruised around drinking beers, stopped to snorkel and check out what’s under the beautiful blue waters near Nha Trang, enjoyed a hilarious and entertaining show put on by the boat crews, and drank some more.

We also stopped by a floating adventure centre, where we got the option to go para-sailing (I did – an exciting first for me), and jet ski, among other things. Very cool experience.

It's really hard to take a good selfie when parasailing.

Third – Hit up the local day spas. After returning from our day boat trip, we all indulged a little and dropped by a day spa for some self-lovin’. I got myself a wonderful facial and massage – the perfect way to end a day of adventure!

Fourth – On both our evenings in Nha Trang, we ate at a beachside restaurant – I would put this down as a must for Nha Trang. It’s beautiful, atmospheric, and just simply fun.

We ate at the Sailing Club, a place I would definitely recommend. It later turns into a club, but I didn’t stay out long enough to experience that – I was a bit exhausted from all we were getting up to throughout the day!

So there you have it – Nha Trang: a place to relax, rejuvenate and, most importantly, have FUN!
