Starting off with the cooler city of Da lat, and by cooler I mean, it is situated up in the mountains. Which meant it is a lot cooler there than anywhere else we had been in Vietnam. It was a God sent. A break from the heat was well needed.
Where we stayed:
Friendly Fun- The beds in this hostel were so confortable. Also very nice, clean and in a decent location. The family running the hostel are so friendly and helpful. We booked canyoning through them. It is a quite hostel, so if you are looking for a good place to meet people and go out I wouldn’t recommend staying here. We did however meet the coolest guy traveling around the world. His instagram is defiantly worth following @elbowjake
Things To Do:
Cannoying- Do you ever find that when you travel each place has a ‘must do’? Well, Da Lat’s ‘must do’ is Canyoning. We went with the company called Highland Holiday and cost us about $40. It is a really fun thing to do when in Da Lat and would definitely recommend it. The only thing I will say about it, at the end of the activities they had us track through the jungle and climb this insanely steep hill. I almost died. My friend actually had to coouks me up the hill by taking it one tree at a time. I put it down to being dehydrated. Drinking liters of water everyday is no joking mater when you are out in these places. Even if you do need to find a bathroom every five minutes.
Food & Drink:
Artist Alley- Really Nice restaurant. The food is amazing and had a great Vegetarian menu.
Muse Cafe- Seriously the most adorable cafe. It looked like it was crafted out of a tree. The coffee was also the best I’d had in a long time. They do a really cute plate of cookies too.
Windmill Cafe- Another cute spot to stop for coffee.
Yes that is a photo of two dogs surffing!
This town isn’t really in the radar of many travelers. Once it was a picturesque little fishing village, now is a destination for Saigoners to escape the city. Even though it’s popularity has soared it still has maintained its fishing village charm. Other than it’s beauty Mu Nei is known for it’s water sports. You can do anything form taking surfing lessons to wind surfing. There are schools dotted along the beach, so you don’t have far to look.
Where we stayed:
The backpackers village– They have a pool and a very cool bar/hang out area. The rooms do kind of look like a prison but there clean so no complaint. Word of advice the sand dunes tour they offer is not worth getting up at 4am for. Most people we talked to said it was terrible and they wouldn’t recommend it.
Food and Drink:
The Bar- This place does really good breakfast. We ended up going here quite a bit for both breakfast and dinner. It was super cheep too.
El Latino- Very good Mexican food, right by the hostel. They also do good deals on food and cocktails. They do very good passionfruit mojitos.
That it from me,
Till next time,
