One Full Fun-Filled Day in Nha Trang

We woke up early in the morning and had breakfast at Gio. They serve a really good plate of stir fried noodles. Although the noodles were oddly similar to the regular IndoMie type instant noodles. It was still good (IndoMie is good too! :P). They also served the noodles in soup - Mi quang.
Here's a picture of the inside of the restaurant. There were loads of aunts crawling around and even more fat flies buzzing around and landing on you D=.... but the food was good. Hope I didn't ingest any bugs. I forgot to take a picture of the food though.
The first place we went to in Nha Trang... THE BEACH! The image above shows a vendor selling cooked seafood. Unfortunately, we did not get to eat many street foods during our tour since we were scheduled to eat at restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday! Darn tour company.
This is the view from our beautiful little hut by the beach.
The beach here is relatively empty. There were quite a few people in the water but really... this is like deserted land compared to White Rock or English Bay here in Vancouver. And... this beach in Nha Trang is so much better by a tenfold. It is PARADISE. The sand is perfect. The water is super clear and warm. It is just perfect.
Our little hut is the second one from the left.
Isn't it beautiful? The water was crystal clear.
For lunch, we ate at Hai Au.
This restaurant is very good. I recommend it. Nha Trang seems to have the best food in all of Vietnam to me. x]
Starting clockwise from bottom right: Pan fried pork chops, deep fried squid stuffed with minced pork with tomato sauce on top, shrimp crackers, goi - shredded cucumber salad, caramelized clay pot fish, stir fried beef with green peppers, and spinach soup in the middle.
I think everything was very good. Although the squid was kind of tough and dry. The salad (goi) was absolute best on the table. I think you can never go wrong ordering 'goi' in Vietnam! (However, I do not like papaya salad... and we never had that anyways =X)
