Jet Ski Safari, Island Tour and sight seeing

Spent the morning travelling around the islands and coves, was an awesome experience. Eugen came and met us and it was all super easy and fun. Jet skis are fast and in a good but used condition. I would definitely recommend the tour. We didn’t do the monkey island tour, seemed too touristy (ask for VIP tour). Lunch at a secluded bay/resort was super nice and great for photos! If you can afford a jet ski each, that is the way to go. Thanks for an awesome half day of fun.

A customized trip with Eileen

Volunteering at the orphanage was an experience I'm definitely going to treasure. It made my travel in Nha Trang more fun and insightful. Eileen's assistant, Janny, picked me up from the hotel at exactly 7:30 in the morning to go to our meeting place to meet other volunteers. Unfortunately, Eileen was not able to go with us at the orphanage that day, but we kept in touch on Facebook. She is such a lovely lady with pure heart, who also addressed all my concerns and questions regarding volunteering. I met with four other volunteers and we headed to the orphanage. It took us about an hour and a half to get there via motorbike and it was truly an exciting experience. We stopped at a local restaurant along the way and I've learned so much about Vietnamese cuisine from other volunteers.

When we got to the orphanage, we played and took pictures with the children. I'm surprised of how calm they are and none of them cried while I tried to carry them in my arms. It's very interesting to know about their backgrounds and the little things that make them unique. We then visited the temple and I was able to see all the beautiful structures inside. We also hiked to see more statues built by monks and we went up the mountain to take pictures with an amazing view. Lastly, we played with the children in the sandpit and they loved every minute of it. I'm so grateful of this opportunity and I wish I could have stayed longer. I strongly recommend volunteering here; not only you'll learn about the Vietnamese culture, but seeing the children will give you loads of satisfaction by the end of the day. This experience brought a purpose to my life and I'll definitely come back in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Eileen (and Janny) for making this happen :)
