Travel Conversation Questions : 



Tony G :
Even though Hon Mun is in a marine reserve, we were hesitant to believe it would be much different to other places in Vietnam we have swam and snorkelled at. We were very surprised though at the water clarity, cleanliness and amount of fish and coral to be seen. We rated it higher than the Whitsunday Islands...and we are Australians! This is the standout place to visit in Nha Trang smiley

RayJeremy :
We loved this place and especially the people who work there. They are all so wonderful. The accommodations, food and service are all as good as it gets. And the place is simply gorgeous. The mountains, the sea, the tropical feel of the place. We absolutely loved Ninh Van Bay. This was our first trip to a Six Senses property. We are big fans and hope to be back heart

Grantley30 :

A beautiful setting for taking some great photography .. authentic scenes that tell the story of the local area .. If you are in Nha Trang it is well worth the visit - but don't forget your camera - a rock formation close to the shore looks unnervingly like a man laying on his back - his head, torso and legs are clearly seen - a beautiful place to relax wink
