large_938978_14286855444727.jpgWhen we arrived in Nha Trang it was again warmer then the day before. Which was good. We arrived a bit late in the afternoon mainly due to a lot of road works. Bus couldn't go any faster than about 40 km/h and over more then 200km..so that takes a while. We also stopped for a few nice photostops and a road restaurant with sea view. So that was quite nice as well.

And now we are in Nha Trang, so on to the next Cham Temple complex! This one is called Po Nagar. Which is theactually the name of the biggest tower, but the name is used for the entire complex. It is built on a hill.

It was a small one (compared to My Son), one big temple, and three smaller ones.It was nice to see, but there were a lot more tourists as well, and locals because people are still coming here to pray and burn incense.large_938978_14286855117215.jpg It was however in better state then My Son, all buildings were completed and the roofs were decorated. The decorations on the temple's outsides were gone because the can't replicate those. There also was a little museum where you could see traditional clothing and a few statues that were found there. And there was a small garden, really pretty.

We didn't do much else in Nha Trang. We had dinner at the hotel which took about an hour before anyone had their dinner, and sat in the hotel bar with a few others before going to sleep.

It is normal that ordering a la carte takes so long, they really aren't used to groups of more then 3 people it seems. So you get the food when it is done. Someone got his after 20 minutes, the last one got theirs 30 minutes later. It did taste good, but it's a bit of a pity if someone has to start dinner when others are already done.
