22. World Cruise–Nha Trang, Vietnam–Mar. 6, 2017

Hi All, (Written Mar. 6, 2017)

Nha Trang, known in this part of the world as the Vietnam Mediterranean coast.  It is located 275 miles along the coast north of Ho Ghi Minh City (Saigon).  It is one of Vietnam’s most popular sea side resorts with over 5 miles of white-sand beaches.

We had a very short time in the port, so Susy and I stayed close to the ship and enjoyed the markets and streets of the little port village.  I’ll start with a map of the area taken at a Tourist Center:

The ship is located where the big star (with Ben Tau Du Lich Cau Da next to it) is in the left center of the map.

From the ship we can look out in front at a cable car which runs from the little port village to one of the islands:

and to our side the village in front of our pier:

You will notice how all these villages are framed by beautiful mountains.

Looking down on the pier we see our first market:

and another on the way to the village:

Looking behind us is another view of the coast line:

Looking out on the harbor, I thought you would be interested in some of the boats.  First what looks like a small water taxi:

then a small fishing boat:

a larger fishing boat:

Before we left the ship I caught Susy in one of those glamor poses:

Nothing glamorous in this next photo except to remind you I’m on this cruise also and the carrier of the "goods" of the day:

As we left the ship and went into the first market, Susy went right to "work??":

Here’s a bunch of water taxi’s ready to take you anywhere around the resort:

The second market:

and finally a street view up in the village:

Oh, and Susy wanted me to show her new hat:

Now, as I’m trying to give you all the experiences of our cruise (which, of course, is impossible) here’s some photos from our last Gala night (we have one every week or two):

That’s it for Nha Trang, our next port is tomorrow, Mar. 7, 2017, Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon), Vietnam.  Until then,

Love You All,

Gary (alias Gagu)
