Was Nachange before the new year, I loved it! Lived in a hotel Moritime. The hotel is nice clean, the rooms are cleaned every day. I don't like hotel on the outskirts and far from the city center, on foot you can walk 30 or 40, always used a taxi. Nearby there is a beach 100 meters away, but for some reason there is no one bathed, and we went closer to the center, where there are more people. Excursions like, for Souvenirs it is better to go to the evening markets where everything is cheaper and you can haggle! Tours can come in handy money, might drop a fortune to buy a good thing then you will need to run or ride. The fruit is better to buy the day before the departure at the Central market, very convenient. ...

We were in Nha Trang at the end of September 2014, the weather was comfortable and in order to sunbathe and swim, and to go on tour, the rains were a few days, lasted literally for an hour. Lived in a wonderful hotel, Best Western Premier Havana Nhatrang, the view is breathtaking! This hotel is near the beach and has an underground walkway from the hotel to the beach (which is very convenient for the newly arrived tourists, which in the early days of the road crossing, full of scooters, very unnerving), in addition, the hotel is situated near the building of the Lotus (the main landmark in Nha Trang), night market and shopping centre. Not going to say much about the hotel, I can only say that everything in it is great: Breakfast, pool, Spa, views, rooms, restaurants. On the first day, after settling we ran to explore the surrounding area and sample local cuisine. Main dishes consist of rice, seafood, you can taste ostrich meat, crocodile, turtle soup, and, of course, soup, Pho. In many places there is menu in Russian language, which, at times, can amuse the tourist such dishes as "pork cheapskate" and "shrimp with radioactive equipment" (translation to Russian). Also on the first line there is a nice restaurant, where home-cooked meals: 250 000 VND (about 600 rubles), visitors have the opportunity to choose any raw foods, which are presented in the restaurant (a large number of fish, meat, seafood, sausages, etc.) and cook them on the grill located on each of the tables. You can also eat in the café located a little further from the city center, just 40,000 Dong ($100). I advise you to go on ...
