Cafe des Amis

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Cafe Des Quick!"

Quote:
This is a small, under-stated café just off from the beach. We visited here for a late lunch/early dinner one afternoon as it was just around the corner from our hotel. It tends to attract the backpacker crowd; it is not the place to go for fine dining but the food is still good. Tables are covered with plastic cloths and you will be presented with a menu in English. They offer cooked breakfasts and a number of Western dishes but the best thing to eat here is the seafood apparently. As a vegetarian I can’t comment first hand, but the dishes looked well prepared and generous as well as being reasonably priced. I ate from the reasonably sized vegetarian section and was impressed with th...Read More

Story/Tip

Nha Trang Beach Photo, Nha Trang, Vietnam
Quote:
Nha Trang is a popular beach resort destination in Vietnam, situated about a quarter of the way up Vietnam’s extensive coastline. There is a lovely long beach here which is sandy and you can often hire sunbeds and parasols as well as purchasing drinks at reasonable prices. For the active types, you can go paragliding or take boat trips. The climate is ideal, and a light breeze tends to pick up in the afternoon. It makes the afternoons much more pleasant temperature wise, but a nightmare to get your towel or sarong to lay down flat. The beach is parallel to the main street – Tran Phu. There is a wealth of scuba and snorkelling boat trips to suit all pockets, varying from ...Read More

Hotel | "Pleasant Three Star Hotel"

Nha Trang is a beach resort on Vietnam’s South Central Coast, and a stopover for us on our travels north. It’s location is sheltered (although there is a light breeze in the afternoons) leading to year round average temperatures of high 20s and low 30s centigrade. Que Huong Hotel was the hotel chosen by our tour operator, and we were very pleased with it. It is located on the main beach front, you just cross the road to the beach area where you can hire sun beds for the day (it is an area exclusive to the hotel I believe). It is a clean, sandy beach and drinks or ice creams etc are available to purchase. Occasionally you will have people come and try and sell you jewellery or souvenirs, offer m...Read More

Vinpearl Amusement Park

Attraction | "A Pleasant Day Out"

Vinpearl Amusement Park Photo, Nha Trang, Vietnam
Quote:
Vinpearl land is an upmarket Vietnamese tourist brand that opened their flagship resort on Hon Tre Island, just across the bay from Nha Trang, on Vietnam’s central south coast area in late 2003. You can see their logo, Hollywood sign style, from the beach in the heart of the town. Vinpearl land offers a luxury hotel and spa resort, but it is also a day trip for locals and tourists alike as it offers a theme park. To be honest I wasn’t initially interested in wandering around a theme park, but my other half was keen to try the cable car across. You can get boat transfers to the island or you can travel on the world’s longest sea-crossing cable car. It is over 3km in length, and you tr...Read More

Thap Ba Hot Springs

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Indulge Your Inner Hippo!"

Quote:
One attraction that appealed to us whilst staying in the Vietnamese beach resort of Nha Trang is a visit to the Thap Ba Hot Springs for a mud bath. It is actually a little way out of town and will probably cost you VND80,000 (US$4/UK£2.65) in a metered taxi each way. The journey takes about 15-20 mins depending on traffic from central Nha Trang and it is very popular, even though it is quite out of the way. When you arrive it can be quite confusing as there are so many packages on offer and you don’t really know what to go for and signage is not always good in English. Fortunately there are ladies around to help you and explain, they will try and tell you about the more expensive packages first, b...Read More
