The next morning, we were ready to leave to a bigger beach resort, particularly popular among Russian tourists - Nha Trang. However, our minibus was rescheduled for 1.5 hours later, so we decided to have a breakfast in a very typical, shabby local place. Sad looking long legged chicken were running around us while we were served the white bread baguettes and fried eggs.
The bus ride was comfy, with nice reclining seats. All the passengers were wearing face masks and we joined. As we were mostly driving by the coast, the views were “not too bad”, as Andon would say.
When we arrived, we were quite surprised to see the city so dramatically different from Phan Rang - it was absolutely crowded, and almost only by Russian tourists and locals who are selling goods and services to them. After checking in our hostel, we strolled along the main street adjacent to the seaside, soaked in the local atmosphere, bought our first dragonfruit (ever!) and finally went to the beach to sunbathe and take a good swim of course.
