    Chùa Long Son Pagode

    April 1, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Haben uns heute wieder ein bisschen kulturell betätigt. Nach einem vietnamesischen Kaffee wollten wir eine Kirche und ein Pagode besuchen. Da die Kirche aber Mittagspause hatte würde es dann nur die Pagode.
    Jetzt ist ein bisschen Siesta angesagt, da es zu heiß draußen ist um zu flanieren. 🌞😉😎

    Friday is a hashing day

    September 21, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 88 °F

    This morning was the Red Dress Run with about 200 or so people in all states of red. The men, of course, had the sexiest outfits, many complete with balloons for grossly exaggerated but extremely funny breasts. I'm sure the locals will be talking about us for quite some time!

    Yesterday's trip to the amusement park ended on a sour note. On our last water slide, my friend and his wife went tandem with her in back. He held on, but she slipped loose and rammed her two front teeth into the back of his scalp. She was fine, but he had to go to the hospital for several stitches. The remaining five of us couldn't help them, so--as true friends must--we rode a final roller coaster (best one of all) and went back to the hotels. They were both back at the hash this morning looking none the worse for wear.

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Arrived in Nah Trang

    August 11, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    It started confusing. The lady from the travel agency came to our pool and told us the bus will leave at 1:00 instead of 1:30 pm and that it will be picking us up.
    Then she came again telling us we will have to go to the street. Be there 12:50 because the bus will be early.
    So we waited until 1:45 pm... sweating, waiting, calling the Agency.
    In the End the Bus picked us up ( after another bus just left us standing there which made us go crazy ).

    Long-Son Pagode

    August 12, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    There are some nice things to do in Nha Trang but in the end, 1 day is enough unless you want to relax at the public beach. But since we are in Hoi An now and since we have seen the beach here my advise is: Move on.

    Anyway, first stop was the Long-Son Pagode with its giant Buddha on top of the small hill and the lying Buddha directly behind the temple. Definitly a must see. Oh, there is no entrance fee and the taxi ride took us around 55k from the Night Market Area to there.

    Mopedtour in Nha Trang - Chùa Long Sơn

    January 27, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌬 27 °C

    Die Long Son Pagode ist unser nächstes Ziel. Sie ist eine buddhistische Tempelanlage am Fuße des Berges Trại Thủy. Auf dem höchsten Punkt der Anlage thront ein riesiger weißer Buddha.
    Der Tempel wurde 1886 ursprünglich auf einem anderen Berg erbaut, wurde aber 1900 bei einem Wirbelsturm stark zerstört und in den 1930igern an seiner heutigen Stelle wiederaufgebaut.
    Wir klettern über alle Ebenen und schauen überall hinein. Und leider fällt uns wieder auf, wieviel Müll rumliegt, selbst an den Heiligtümern.
    Unten angekommen, fahren wir direkt am Hafen vorbei zur letzten Etappe, der katholischen Kirche in Nha Trang.

    Stop Russian Around!

    January 26, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌬 29 °C


    Doc Let Back down to Nha Trang (Vietnam)

    Stop Russian around!

    After the drama of yesterday ee decide we'll check out 2 days early as its so grim.

    Noblet writes a snotty email to Agoda & trip advisor for their dodgy forwarding techniques.

    Then says to me.... "I've accidentally sent that email to the hotel, we better leave" so we pack at a hundred miles an hour and check out pronto laughing all the way!!

    He's ill to be fair I'll let his idiocy slide 😂😂😂😂

    Bus back down to the main town and bag a nice hotel £15 pn.... This is more like it YEY!!

    Phone call to iResort a spa type of thing, and they come and pick us up in a golf buggy and drive us the 6km to the resort.

    Next thing you know we're scrapping in a mud bath mud wrestling disturbing the peace.... Then, its into a giant pot of tea where we soak in Lipton for 20 minutes! Then we get in some geothermally heated salt water... Which is a massive swimming pool with giant water falls and a view over Nha Trang to die for!!! This is brilliant! Living the dream (although still not as good as the one with beer in iceland with dad!)

    Once we've chilled out we head back down for a foot massage. They make us change into some communal bathing outfits we look soo Chinese! The lads start the foot massage which is lovely until they start karate chopping your feet.... Wtf pal!!!

    Feet finished and feeling thoroughly violated we head for some food and more chill.

    It's quite late and though the park is meant to be open until 8pm loads of the pools are being emptied and clean and we can't find the flumes... Nooo!!

    Traditional handstand competition and then drowning each other sesh and it's day done!!! What a great day for £20 each!!! Imagine how much that would be in the UK!

    Top notch chicken pie.... Uuuhhh I like pie.

    Went to get a taxi home and the Russians (of which there are many) are worse than the Chinese at queueing we kick off to not much avail! Then two cheeky Russians approach is having the crack about pushing in and then realise we're not Russian! They proceed to push in front of ten people and barge into the next taxi.... Psssshhhhh this is ridi!! Anyway now even the Russians think we're Russians. What is with people assuming we're German/ Russian... It's constant!

    Must be how fit we are!

    Jump in a taxi and share with a few Chinese brilliant! Obviously the driver asks us for the lions share of the fare as we're white. Honestly the racism we're on the receiving end of on this trip is ridic! I feel like Leon!

    German sausage and chips for tea to try and get Noblet eating again.... It seems to have worked touch wood!!
