Well for all the YouTubers tired of seeing the plethora of Thailand videos and Vlogs, we have another installment from Nha Trang, Vietnam. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand. In part 8 we will continue to cover what it costs and what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we have more info and sights and sounds from Nha Trang.

Check out our exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site – all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at:

We will continue to try to answer the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam?” We will continue to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. Here again is a little info about Nha Trang.

Nha Trang is a coastal city and capital of Khánh Hòa Province, on the South Central Coast of Vietnam. The city has about 392,000 inhabitants, a number that is projected to increase to 560,000 by 2015 and 630,000 inhabitants by 2025.

An area of 12.87 square kilometers (4.97 sq mi) of the western communes of Diên An and Diên Toàn is planned to be merged into Nha Trang which will make its new area 265.47 square kilometers (102.50 sq mi) based on the approval of the Prime Minister of Vietnam in September 2012.

Nha Trang is well known for its beaches and scuba diving and has developed into a popular destination for international tourists, attracting large numbers of backpackers, as well as more affluent travelers on the south-east Asia circuit; it is already very popular with Vietnamese tourists, with Nha Trang Bay widely considered as among the world’s most beautiful bays.

Nha Trang Bay, which was chosen by Travel + Leisure in two succeeding years as one of 29 most beautiful bays in the world, is surrounded on all three sides by mountains and a large island and four smaller ones on the fourth side (in the ocean directly in front of the city’s main area), blocking major storms from potentially damaging the city.

Nha Trang has a tropical savanna climate with a lengthy dry season from January to August and a shorter wet season from September to December, when 1,029 millimeters (41 in) of the city’s total annual rainfall of 1,361 millimeters (54 in) is received from the north-east monsoon. During the wet season extremely heavy rainfall from typhoons is not uncommon, though the city is shielded from the worst winds.

Final shot of your coffee driving into the cup, I noticed the Elephant on Nat's knee, very Thai:)

Contrary to foods prices, coffees in Nha Trang are so cheap perhaps due to its closeness to coffee plantations in central highlands. Typical cost for a cup of coffee with condensed milk in areas near Saigon is about 20K VND, about almost a USD.

Hi JP! I know you said you can't pronounce the name of the hotel to let us know where you stayed. But, pity you didn't show the outside of the hotel, so we could get the name from the signage board, or at least tell us a where exactly it is or next to which business it is. It would have helped me so much. There are lots of hotels in that price range, yes, but I have not found one yet of the same quality (and size) as where you stayed…and with a balcony!

Hi, JC. Another excellent video. I must admit I really don't get the missing right-hand mirror thing. But it was interesting to see in your video that many of the other bikes on the road had both mirrors, obviously it's not every bike. The sight of those tissues lying on the floor in the restaurant was disgusting. It may be a common thing in Vietnam, but I don't see it as part of the culture, it is just laziness. How hard is it to clean those tissues up? I am with you on the Disney music, it would me mad. Maybe one of the torcher's from the days of the war made up the music for them lol. You said that you were getting used to driving on the right. I know that you have been in Thailand for a good few years now, and you have gotten used to driving on the left, but coming from the states where you would have driven on the right for many years I would have expected it to be a breeze for you. But you seem to be coping quite well. Looking forward to the next video. Take care on the roads with only having the one mirror.

Neil.

Wonder how hard it would be just to buy a mirror for the right side of bike. As noted in another comment, there seems to be a lot of bikes with right mirrors as you traveled along the road. Although I have a motor bike (125 cc Honda PCX—-I love it) I would not attempt ride one in either Thailand or Vietnam. At age 71 I feel my responses would be too slow. Do they have motor cycle taxi there? As usual another great video. The price for a great room at about 15 dollars a day is fantastic. I had a hard time finding prices like that in Thailand, especially for that kind of room. I am glad I am not a Brit xpat. What a drop in pound value. Take care and continue on your adventures.

The 600,000 includes all the rides and attractions but many of the good ones are closed so they give you a 100,000 voucher towards food and beverage on the island ,only buy at the cable car not before you get there or you would not get the credit towards food .still worth a visit even with the construction.Be sure to use the public transit very handy and you can take to monkey island bus stops right in front well worth a visit to monkey island also if you go through the gate just south of the cable car location you will see where the high end rippers live if you are on a higher budget

I'm curious JC, and this question applies to Thailand as well, do people normally take out some kind of theft insurance in case the bike itself gets stolen? What happens in that event? How frequently do you hear about things like that in Thailand? Thanks.

Does airbnb people need to hold your passport? Seems like airbnbn would be alot less beaucratic hassle and you can have a woman in your room since they probably dont check whereas in vietnam thats not allowed in most hotels which even have police checks.

In reference to bike rentals, Can you get a copy of your passport and use that instead of giving up your original and only passport?

It's fun watching your videos and following you on Google Maps at the same time. Thanks for the Videos. I'm a young Ripper, but still enjoy. I think I'll be sticking to Thailand though. Hope you meet up for a beer when I get there in September! Join me for a tour in Buriram!

Horn honking in Vietnam is used as a safety measure to warn others that you are near or approaching.

Like other countries in SE Asia, drivers tend to focus on what's in front and trust the person behind is doing the same and will see them.

With so many scooters in such a small country, along with pedestrian traffic and lots of little alleys intersecting major roads, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Note the horn honking is almost never done out of aggression like in the west and there is zero road rage despite the apparent chaos.

Enjoy your work but the whole Vietnam trip so far has had as much a tourist feel to it as it has a retirement one . Case I point you show inside a hotel but not the apartment . Horn honking didn't exist pre war , it was all bell ringing, they all rode bicycles .

Any thoughts going off the beaten path concerning the following. "THE VIETNAMESE government said it needs at least 100 years and more than US$10 billion to clear all the unexploded landmines and bombs leftover from previous wars.
