getting to Nha Trang, Vietnam

I would say a good 35-40% of the trip was spent getting to places. Getting from America to China to Ho Chi Minh to Bangkok, Thailand to Pattaya, Thailand back to Ho Chi Minh to Nha Trang back to Saigon to China then finally, LAX + an uber back to my apartment. 

thai snacks are probably my favorite of them all. the most flavorful, spicy, and in your face. these flavored seaweed snacks were my favorite. plain ones are already good but tom yum + spicy flavors ones are even BETTER. 

Nha Trang was everything my parents described but more beautiful than I could ever imagine... it was a slice of paradise where love started for my parents.

a beach town surrounded by warm water + fresh seafood (basically #ISLANDLIFE)

couldn't wait to hop off the plane and jump in the ocean. what's a vacation without a dip?

bus ride from the airport to the hotel (VinPearl Resort--it's on an island so you had to take a ferry across or chair lift) 

If you decide to spent time one Nha Trang I suggest splitting your time in half. Half on the mainland half on the vin pearl island/resort. It's simply the best. What leisure is all about. We were greeted with fresh mango juice :)

Ride from the land to the resort. I felt like I was in the south of france or something. Scene from a movie!!!!!
