Back To "Nha Trang"  

We were now riding partly along by the sea, partly just inland.

The Coast North of Nha Trang


The ride north from Nha Trang was idyllic, but very hot.







Shrimp Farming



This area was used for many small shrimp farms.

Rotating paddles are used to aerate the water





The ride was too hot for some, and we ended up on the coach to finish the journey 

Dai Lanh Fishing Village

This was a good place to stop for lunch




Afternoon Ride into Quy Nhon


Fishing is the key to this area  



Memorial to the Son My (My Lai) Massacre

Son My was the site of a massacre of local villagers by the Americans in the Vietnam war - more than 500 villagers were killed, mostly in the hamlet of My Lai (which is where the memorial is)





Ride On Towards Hoi An



The ride on to Hoi An was back on Highway 1, and not particularly pleasant, but there was at least some picturesque countryside along the way
