Sam was quickly become beached out and decided that he would buy some cheap fishing gear to keep him entertained (whilst I worshiped the sun) but also something good enough to take to Oz with him. We spent the whole day moving along the beach trying to find the perfect spot for him to land some big fish. It worked out eventually and along the way Sam even acquired a little fan club.
We moved into our original hotel and surprisingly it was really decent - for what we paid it was great
On Nha Trang beach at night you will find people selling and cooking fresh seafood, needless to say Sam and I had lobster, crabs, clams, scallops, prawns and a snail which Sam ate (Blurghh). After our delicious meal we headed to a backpackers bar, had a few too many cocktails and ended up getting a Bahn Mi (spicy meat baguette) on the way home haha.
Then we got on a bus which took us to Delat, it's really quiet in Dalat and has a strong French influence with patisseries and villas everywhere. It was a nice relaxing place but it was so cold compared to everywhere else we have been so far (I had to wear jeans!). We took a trip to the Dalanta Waterfalls which was interesting and had a go on the luge ride which was fun!
We are now in Ho Chi Minh City after a 40 minute flight and are just waiting to check into our hotel. The hotel is located smack bang in the centre of backpackers district and bars and restaurants are plentiful. We are planning to pack the next four days with day trips as there's a lot to see here.
That's all for now!
