What to do in Nha Trang, Vietnam

In Asia by TIM

TRIPPED makes the trip from Dalat, Vietnam to Nha Trang and encounters the best roads in Vietnam for motorbikes. Never heard of Nha Trang?  No worries!  Think of it as Cancun for Russians.  Nha Trang has a sprawling beach that runs along Tran Phu Street. There are many nearby islands accessible by boat, diving spots, as well as a cable car that will take you out to  Hòn Tre Island if you’re so inclined.   If you are more the party type, then you’ll find parties aplenty.   There is a huge nightlife that can be found in Nha Trang with bar after bar blasting 5 year old American pop music and some Euro beats as well.

Monkey Island outside of Nha Trang, Vietnam

Once in Nha Trang, the best thing to do is head straight to Monkey Island for some crazy monkey hi-jinks. Turns out, Allison is not the biggest fan of mobs of insane monkeys and Fiona feels much the same way. On the flip side, the boys think Monkey Island is the single greatest tourist destination in the history of mankind, so they head there with bananas, Pringles, and hearts full of love for their little simian friends. This isn’t Disney World-  things get tense when alpha monkeys show up hungry for snacks.

The ferry boat out to monkey island is located just north of Nha Trang proper.   The boat is only the equivalent of a few US dollars. Passengers are allowed to bring backpacks full of food to feed the monkeys.  After monkey island, its about a 15 minute ride via motorcycle out to Ba Ho Waterfall.
