|We'd arrived under a brooding sky and sailed out under one as well.|
|Our first stop today was Ponagar Cham Towers.|
|Ponagar Cham Towers date back to the 2nd Century AD.|
|The hats were better for keeping the rain off us today rather than keeping the sun off us.|
|After finishing our cruise up the Cai River we visited this temple, the thing is I can't remember the name of he temple. I do remember the touts though....they seemed to follow us from place to place on their motorbikes.|
|After jumping off the boat we checked out a rural village, although this old truck was probably the most rural thing there.|
|Next up we visited a clay pot maker.|
|Yeah, I know I'm soft.|
We visited Nha Trang on a Princess cruise out of Singapore. So being on a cruise pretty well everything was well run and all the logistics sorted for us meaning all we had to really do was to turn up. I'm mentioning all that because it means that I can't actually say what the costs of the individual attractions are (or even if you can visit them when not on a tour?). The tour itself was called Cham Tower, River Cruise & Rural Village and it cost us $90 American each, which I didn't think was too bad. Nha Trang looks to be pretty well set up for tourists, with a long wide sea front boulevard lined by plenty of hotels, restaurants and shops. Vietnam is generally a country where you get a fairly good bang for your buck and Nha Trang didn't seem to be much different in that regard.

|We're about to sail back out into the South China Sea, the mountains behind Nha Trang are still brooding under dark clouds.|
|Sailing away from Nha Trang.|
|The scenery around Nha Trang was very good, definitely worth spending time on deck to check out - although it's always surprising how few passengers bother to watch these sail aways.|
|The fishing boats were heading back in for the night.|
