Vietnam - Southeast Coast (Chapter)
If your idea of paradise is reclining in front of turquoise waters, deciding between a massage or a mojito, then you’ve come to the right place.
This lovely stretch of beachfront is brochure material, with chalk-white sand and shallow waters. Doc Let (pronounced ‘yop lek’) is easily accessible from Nha Trang and worth considering as a day trip (beach entrance fee 10,000d) or overnight stop. Unfortunately the main strip around the government-run Doc Let Resort has been well and truly overrun by domestic tourists on whistlestop coastal tours, so it pays to explore the area at your own pace on a rented motorbike. Although there’s a small town nearby, the resorts on the beach are fairly isolated, so when staying here, be prepared to do nothing but lounge around.
