Nha Trang boat trip – Vietnam


Over the years I have been on quite a few tourist boat trips, so I wasn’t expecting too much form this one, but it turned out to be both fun and educational. We started off by crossing the bay to a nearby island where we walked through the back streets visiting the local houses and a hospital. The locals collect rain water as there is no fresh water pipe to the main land and transporting it over in bulk is very expensive.

This kid was hauling water up from a well with great gusto alongside his brother.


After crossing the island we had a short ride with a local in a bamboo boat. These tiny boats are only big enough for 3 or so people and are really quite amazing! They are weaved from bamboo and then covered in various water buffalo feces until water tight.

After a great day we headed back to shore, taking in the approaching city scape and cable car across to the amusement park.
