The first of the stations was the main attraction, the mud. I was hoping the process would be relatively hygienic and we wouldn't be hopping into a pool of used mud - thankfully that wasn't the case and it was all pretty nice. Essentially when you go to the resort, you get a private tub that they fill with fresh, warm mud through a large faucet. It was nice to have the girls along for this, as I realized that if it was just the two of us guys sharing a mud bath, we may have gotten some questionable looks from the locals.
Stepping into the mud for the first time, I thought the texture of the mud might be somewhat dense and stick to you but it actually had a much more liquid feel to it which would leave a thin film on you. One thing I did not realize when sitting in a mud tub is that sitting isn't really an option at all – you kinda just float in it and bounce into the other people. After the mud, you make your way into this huge waterfall shower with what must have had 10 different spouts to rinse off, before hopping into a separate tub of hot mineral water. We chilled in these tubs for awhile before making our way to some waterfall that had a couple different pools of varying temperatures. The waterfalls were more of a communal spot and we tried to get a couple good pics, realizing that we were really the only westerners here. In all, we must have spent 3 or 4 hours relaxing among these spots which definitely made me feel more relaxed by the time we left. I'd definitely recommend it to others. Our hotel also happened to be adjacent to the main bars in Nha Trang.
I thought the bars in Nha Trang were basically sufficient, as they really played to the backpacker demo with $1.50 buckets of booze. Nonetheless, we all had a good time within them – so much so that Brian and I decided to skip our 8am flight and reschedule it for the following day after I had a late night/morning (first time in my life I've ever just skipped a flight).
