Review of Nha Trang, Vietnam (from Natalka74rus)

Were a couple in Nha Trang , from 28 February to 13 MAart 2013. Liked it very much. Lived in a hotel in the centre of the beach, Nha Trang Lodge Hotel 4*. To the hotel no complaints at all – clean, allowed to choose for themselves the room, free Wi-Fi (but it's everywhere there), morning Breakfast is good (and there Breakfast and lunch and dinner provided). The location is very good – everything you need (Bank, cafe, square, Lotus, shops, night market) just around the hotel. The beach in Nha Trang is clean (sand resembles breadcrumbs), the sea too. A lot of children, it catches the eye. In the evenings families come to the waterfront for dinner, and the kids in the square (Lotus) and ride and play. It gets dark early (at 7 PM), 11 the streets-empty, get up at 5 a.m., mass exercises not seen. People are friendly, many speak passable Russian and the Russian local quite a lot, not counting tourists.

I liked the following places:

Vinpearl. There is a very extreme rollercoaster, the beach, sand like flour, cinema, aquarium. They have their own website, there you can see the details. Overall – very nice, stay organized well (lockers, showers, maps of the island), it is possible to spend the whole day and the cable car is also a kind of entertainment. Makes no sense to take him trips, no problem to get by.

Mud I-resort (new). Baths with mineral mud (smells like spice), baths with herbs, waterfalls, pools with Jacuzzi. Everywhere mineral water. At the entrance a Russian woman – tells all. Pay an entrance fee and are there as many (and Vinpearl). Because of this wonderful place in the city Spa did not go. Went themselves.

Yang Bai. They call it a waterfall, but it's a normal mountain river (rapids). And it is remarkable in that it is fish that eat dead skin (such Spa hold). So do not waste your time at a music concert and get in the water. I went on an excursion. A place far from the city. By the way, about fish and nobody said the brochure was not written.

Silk factory (don't know its exact name) – there craftswomen embroider hand painted – something incredible (not to be confused with shawls, etc. from the markets), hanging a lot of portraits of celebrities, of our - Medvedev with his wife. Pattern is double – sided- transparent silk on both sides, the picture looks the same. In the guidebooks about this place not read. Located between our hotel and Novatel'.

Did not like the tour of Three Islands (monkey Island, Orchid garden). Orchid garden - this is how neighbors in the country. Monkeys little pieces of the 50 runs. The circus was (the bears was pathetic). Anyone who has seen the "monkey City", the zoo and the Orchid garden in Bali, I understand. There was one-tenth of Bali wealth.

A big minus is rats. From 10 PM you can see how they run loose in the parks. Beautiful parks, all in different tilah, backlit, there are some simulators, children's playgrounds. In one of the cafes in the afternoon saw a rat. Locals do not pay to them special attention.

The specifics of the Russian people – to tear more. In all cafes the Russian prices significantly higher. In all other cafes is always the amount of food was more and lower prices. Liked the Turkish restaurant Meze, but for turtle soup went to our checkpoint.

Two shopping centers – Maximark and Nha Trang centre. The second was more and near the hotels on the first line. There are places (2 store in the district of Novatel', in the direction of the city), where they sell ski suits and down jackets Karbon, o'neill, Columbia small for Russia prices. Market Children (or Chad) didn't offer anything new.

Pagoda, Cham towers – a sightseeing tour not taken, drove themselves to look at the pagoda and the tower. In the pagoda entrance is free, the clothes can be any. Who wants to watch the service inside, come to 14-00. Not left a good impression – a bunch of fools, and piles of garbage. A lot of beggars is sitting, monks places, girls cards sell while lying around everywhere bottles, bags, etc. stuff. The statue of the sleeping Buddha and sitting there. Tower – another thing, everything was clean, entrance fee, give out free clothes (elbows and knees should be covered).

Pearls on silver bought in the Gemological center of Angkor Treasure (the Treasure of Angkor), there is always not only check the goods, and the certificate. Vietnamese responsible for the design and selection of jewelry understands Russian, so there gay Russian geologist, who will talk about river, sea pearls etc. details. They are losing on the selection of products. Here you can change money, the best rate they have, but we always changed at the Bank.

Of the 13 days we were busy 11 2 days already just walked. Nothing was poisoned, and ate crocodile, ostrich, turtle. Overall enjoyed it, would recommend.

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 that 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, literally for 40 000 VND (100). ...
