Few days ago i decided i wan 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 ) and rented scooter from the same lady again . This time i said that im going bit more far so i need good scooter !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 . After 25 km i found little harbor (easy to recognize, its decorated and surrounded by tour buses ) . There they offer different boat trips . I choose one to "monkey island " .  Price was 70.000 vnd and it took around 10 minutes to get there . There was no hidden fees to be on island . 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 i reached river .

There i left scooter and paid entrance fee and to leave scooter ( all together 15.000 vnd ) . Then from there is walking option only . After around 600 m  there was little path way on side of main one . So i went to discover it : there i found 5 Vietnamese cooking mussels on fire . They invited me to taste some of them and i was on to continue my journey . Time was around 4 :30 pm already so i had to hurry up before dark . I kept walking and found path way crossing river .

All way from there was marked with red signs of directions . Before starting this way i stopped and had soup from local ladies cooking just by river on fire places . Soup was amazing and only 20.000 vnd .While eating soup i saw few passers from waterfalls . Then i went myself . I did not went all the way up , i went almost to the top and decided to turn back ( it took around 20 minutes to go up  there - so i did not want to walk back in dark trough forest , it was around 5:20 pm ).

 Then i walked back to take my bike and on the way decided to check my scooter keys ... And damn .. I did not had them ...  I got really stressed and worried .. What if .... no no no no ...So i walked really fast back to parking and i was  trying to see my scooter .. And there it was.. and keys were left in the seat lock .. I was so relieved and could not believe that nobody noticed ... ! 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 !! :)
