yes we did. rachele & i just got back from our $44 tour (or we like to call it a field trip) of the phan thiet region. it’s basically the closest beach we can go to within a weekend. it was pretty hilarious since we went on one of those asian tours with old asian people. we ate in groups & our tour guide sang vietnamese folk songs to us. our hotel was pretty baller & was right across from the main beach. they took us to see some statues, the beach, the sand dunes, & ta cu mountain. all in all, a very fun & interesting weekend… well worth the $44.
