Snapshots from Nha Trang
Met up with Mimmi and Frans (who, as it turns out, wasn’t a couple after all but merely good friends travelling together) for this DIY BBQ feast in the northern end of the city
Went by the local market on my way to Long Sun Pagoda
In love with these colours
Sleeping Buddha at Long Sun Pagoda (featuring giant cutie-feet)
A giant, white Buddha is watching over Nha Trang from the top of Long Sun
Got sunburned despite 11 layers of sunscreen and had to purchase a hat on my way to the Cham towers north of Nha Trang. They weren’t anything special to be honest and unlike Long Sun had an entrance fee. But the view was good.
Bun thit nuong – rice noodles with BBQ pork, imperial rolls and vegetables. Delish!
Took the worlds longest over-water cable car to “Vinperl land” (amusement park/water park/aquarium/beach/dolphin show) It took around 10 min. to cross.
Really enjoyed the aquarium. Here featuring dragon fish

Watched a really bizarre dolphin show. The first half wasn’t even dolphins but sea lions and the whole thing was curated only in Russian (that’s Nha Trang for ya’)
For her birthday “Snow” one of the adorable reception ladies at my hostel bought birthday cake for us all
Went to famous B/W photographer Long Thanh’s gallery where he told me about his pictures and showed me his cameras. (His pictures are gorgeous btw)
Now I’ back in Saigon where I’ll spent my last few days until I fly home on Wednesday.
And in case any of you were wondering I didn’t abseil down the waterfall as much as slipping and falling, head first, legs entangled in my safety rope, unable to move or get up on my feet, until finally giving up and just sliding down the waterfall, getting back on my feet and, finally, letting go and jumping the last five meters into the river
