Mud Bath at Nha Trang, Vietnam
Travel and Leisure Magazine said that Nha Trang Bay is one of the 29 most beautiful bays in the world. Maybe, but I prefer Ha Long Bay up the coast.
Besides the top 29 of anything is a goofy number.
Why do the normal stuff in Nha Trang when just a few kilometers away is the famous Thap Ba Hot Springs? This afternoon we ditched our fellow passengers, hired a couple motorcycles for some adventure and zipped over to Thap Ba to enjoy all it had to offer.
The program is that you shower (I am not sure why), hop into therapeutic mud for 20 minutes, let the mud dry in the sun for 10 minutes, shower, take a swim in piping hot, hot springs water, shower, 45 minute massage, shower, and call it a day.
$18 later we felt like totally relaxed prunes. Then we popped back onto the rear of the motorcycles and headed back to the ship.
