Da Lat and Nha Trang - on Vietnamese sleeping buses

happy before the horror ride started in the sleeping bus^^
A crazy bus ride brought us from Saigon to Da Lat... although I didn't recognize much of it, as I was the only one of us who slept, the others told me about the horror ride :) We arrived early morning (21.03.) in Da Lat and were welcomed by the morning market. We chose to have a warm noodle soup and coffee at a nearby local restaurant and watched the bustle of the market. A visit to the tourist office helped us to organize another sleeping bus overnight to Nha Trang. But before that we took a taxi uphill and visited the Truc Lam monastery with its pleasant gardens. We found the cable car to be too expensive... but the taxi took us downhill to some park where we wandered around and listen a small waterfall while taking a nap^^ Most of the big waterfalls were not worth visiting at this time of the year as it was dry season. We then went back into town, had a small lunch and then caught the sleeping bus to Nha Trang.

From Nha Trang bus terminal we took a taxi to our hotel. It was still time to catch some dinner and to enjoy some beer at the beach - what we did :) Unfortunately, all of Nha Trang is packed with Russian tourists. Felt like an all inclusive package tourist spot in Turkey :/ The next day (22.03.) was dedicated to beach time - a whole day lingering at the beach, swimming and reading books :D Ben and Tob used the time to take account for a prior bet they made back in Germany and got their heads shove :) At the evening a bus brought us to Hoi An.
