When i was in Vietnam i decided i want to try riding scooter in streets of Vietnam !
Idea was good-so few other people decided to join me! .
First day went great . I got smooth scooter from local laundry shop. Price was 100.000 vnd for 1 day rent . There was very little fuel already inside scooter so i had to fill some up on the way - prices for fuel is around 25.000 per litre or something like that.
Then next day i decided to try trip alone ! So i got up at 12 noon (bad timing- i know .) ) and rented scooter from the same lady again .
This time i said that im going bit more far so i need good scooter ...She ...
She gave me different one than last time . I started driving south from Nha Trang . After 20 km i met 2 Swedish guys on side of road , admiring view from top of mountain . I offered them to join me , but they had different plans .
So i kept going alone . After 25 km i found little harbour (easy to recognize, its decorated and surrounded by tour buses ) .
After 20 km i met 2 Swedish guys on side of road
I spend around 2 hours on island . There was wild monkeys running around , dog races , circus , diving options , restaurants ... Lots to do .. Fully enough for 2 hours . Maybe not more .
Than i got back and on the way i asked few people for directions to BA HO waterfalls .. It was 7km away . So i continued driving .after 7km there was sign : " BA HO - Tourist " (tourist- as sign for tourists ) . Then after 1 km there was turn again and then 2 km on very bumpy road and atlast i the reached river .
Time was around 4 :30 pm already so i had to hurry up before dark . I kept walking and found path way crossing river .
There were wild monkeys running around , dog races , circus , diving options , restaurants ...
And there it was.. and keys were left in the seat lock .. I was so relieved and could not believe that nobody noticed that keys are left in a scooter , or maybe people are so honest that n one wanted to take my scooter... ! From that moment on was driving back to NHa Trang feeling lucky .
I got back to Nha Trang around 7 pm and got dinner on way .
Over all my day out was great !! And lucky of course ... And " Monkey island " is for sure nice place to go.. For family or alone .. Its still fun !! :)
