13th February Vietnam... Paradise beach resort, and Da Lat
The beach was near us spotless clean and beautiful
with small but powerful waves to have fun in.
|A little bit of heaven|
On either side of the resort you could find two fishing villages one about 10 mins walk, the other a good 45 mins along the beach.
Just wandering around the village was lovely as it was not in the least designed for tourists, no souvenir stalls no selling trips, just villagers going about there life. One of the best bits about the area was the fact that it is so remote and not touristy.
But I don't want to say its totally idyllic this is in the end Vietnam, and they do have a problem with rubbish. Where the villages are, you could see rubbish and stuff lying around especially on the beach, some of it not to savoury. I Saw one lady dig a hole put her rubbish in it and then cover it. Now i understood why so much rubbish lay on the beach. You have to take the good with the bad in Asia. Its not Europe.
But because the small villages in the area don't have to cater to and get rid of the added weight of tourist rubbish and pollution. The water was still so much cleaner and nicer than we found in other places like Vietnams Mui Ne or Thailand's Koh Tao.
We took a 6 am early morning walk to the local village to eat fish for breakfast.
