For my loyal viewers this video will explain a lot. I was very harsh on the Vietnamese in my previous episodes. My interactions had been quite disappointing. As you all commented I said to hang in there. Well now in Nha Trang you will start to see why I said that. The events in this video were a major turning point in my considering Vietnam and a RIPper (Retiree In Paradise) destination. It might be a bit slower than some of my videos and less informative but none the less this was a major change for me. Watch and you will see why!

In this episode we have another installment from Vietnam. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and are really starting to appreciate what Vietnam has to offer RIPpers. In part 9 we will continue to cover what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we have more info and sights and sounds from Nha Trang. 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 in case you missed it.
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.
