Where I stayed
Vinh Hung 3 Hotel
We went closer to inspect, indeed there were people in bikinis sunbathing, it was a real beach! We pedalled along the parallel road enjoying the sea air and soaking up the rays which we have not seen for over a week. We even had to strip off our tracksuit trousers and long sleeved tops. The hotels stretched all the way along, grotesque most of them, punctuated by building sites where hundreds of villas are being constructed
We checked out a few hotels and found a great place with a swimming pool on the roof. It didn't take long to get into said swimming pool. Fully refreshed we strolled to the river where we found a familiar face. We had really been looking forward to meeting Steve and there he was, true to form, sat back with a cold beer. Well, it was 1 o clock.
We got the low down on his trip so far which has taken in Thailand and Singapore and enjoyed a couple of hours of doing nothing. It was so peaceful, apart from the woman waitress who howled at every poor tourists who went past "Hello, Come in please, Happy Hour". The Vietnamese win the loudest people award so far, and having been to India, that is quite something
Pols and I then went to inspect the beach which we planned to lie on all day tomorrow. We rented our moped and off we sped, 10km out of town to the most perfect spot. The sun was fully out and the beach was spotless. All looked in order for the visit tomorrow!
Steve found us a fantastic restaurant to eat at in the evening. Set in an open air courtyard, the barbequed food was delicious. We completely over ordered and our starters would have been quite sufficient. Especially as Steve’s crispy chicken dish turned out to be 9 supersize gourmet chicken Mcnuggets!
Great to catch up with a Bosham buddy and another cracking day planned for tomorrow. The drizzle of North Vietnam is well and truly behind us.
