Vietnam has got an excellent bus service for backpackers, I was able to get an "open bus ticket" from Saigon to Mui Ne to Nha Trang to Hue and get on and off the bus whenever I wanted! So here is some of my adventures of the first 3 stops on this trip through Vietnam.
1. Saigon aka Ho Chi Minh City
Saigon was ok… not great just ok
2. Mui Ne
The next stop was Mui Ne! It was a fantastic little beach resort – very quite, which was a relaxing change to the city life. I hired a motorbike that had really dodgy breaks, but it was great fun, even though I got ripped off trying to buy fuel at the petrol station. However despite this little setback I took off into the wilderness of Vietnam and just explored the local area! It was great…although I did get a little bit sunburnt! Next day I found a cool waterfall place… I don't know what else to say about it, but it was cool! The beach in Mui Ne wasn’t that good though as it was full of rubbish and jellyfish, so I left.
3. Nha Trang
Nha Trang was a brilliant city! It had the lively atmosphere of a busy city but was located right on the edge of the beach! The hostel I stayed at was run by the most smiley person I have ever met! She was like a dolphin on speed... I also met up with 3 German guys who I first met back in Saigon so had a laugh with them enjoying the Nha Trang nightlife! However after a couple of days in Nha Trang I started to get itchy feet again, so I left.
