Our south to north journey of Vietnam brought us to Nha Trang. It was our second visit since 2016. Our memory of Nha Trang remained extremely vivid, as we created many fond memories from our first ever visit to Vietnam. We remember the cheap shisha bars, the relaxing mud bath spas và the countless encounters with locals mistaking us for Russian tourists.

The comfortable leather seats recline just enough khổng lồ replicate a bed, although anyone over the height of 6 feet would struggle to sleep like a baby.

Ripped off upon arrival in Hoi An

The sound of the bus driver yelling “Hoi An, Hoi An, Hoi An” woke us up. We arrived in Hoi An at the promised time of 6 am. We zombied off the bus at what appeared to be an ordinary main road, with our bags slumped on the sidewalk. Local motorbike taxi drivers barricaded us & our bags, asking for the name of our hotel, lớn give themselves enough time lớn gauge the distance & inflate the price for us lightheaded zombies, yet khổng lồ feast on some brains for breakfast.It sounds lượt thích yet another metaphor, but at this moment we lacked the brainpower to lớn consider our options, before accepting a price of 40,000 VND ($1.72) each. We didn’t realize our hotel was within walking distance (1 km), so we paid much more than what the journey was worth. We later checked the price on the motorbike xe taxi app, Grab, only to lớn see the price was 15,000 VND ($0.65) each.

Upon reflection of the journey, we were more than happy with the service. All in all, it was a smooth và comfortable ride. However, we should have made more preparations for our arrival in Hoi An; notably our khách sạn booking, which was a 1 pm check-in. As we arrived so early we found ourselves hangin’ out outside of the hostel, desperately awaiting a good shower và a change of clothes.
