Emperor Cruise out of Nha Trang.....Day 12

This morning we were picked up at our hotel and taken down to the local dock, we the boarded a replica of a Chinese junk and set sail out of the bay towards the South China sea. The inside of the junk was elaborately decorated with arm chairs and sofas and a splendid dining room.

Our first stop was the Island of Hon Mun where we were transferred by speed boat to a hidden cove with a beach set up for our arrival. After a few hours of sunbathing, swimming and the odd Tiger beer we returned to the Junk for lunch, the menu included,

Bird nest soup
Mango salad
Fresh spring rolls
Grilled Tiger prawns
deep fried spring rolls with noodles
Sweet and sour chicken
Roast vegatables
Lemon sorbet

We then relaxed on the sundeck with the beautiful mountains surrounding us before setting sail to our next stop at Hon Mieu where we visited a local floating fishing village where they still use the old conical boats.
We then set sail for Nha Trang with the wind blowing through our hair.

In the evening we decided to have an Italian meal so we went to the recommended "Olivia" restaurant and we were not disappointed as we enjoyed a lovely meal. On the way home we stopped off and watched the Under 23 quarter final in the European football championship....and the bar went crazy as Vietnam won on penalties.
