What I like about Nha Trang is that everything is just right here on the strip. The energy is really focused here. It’s such a fun, vibrant town.

To really feel Danang you need to open your heart and then you see the personality and the charm that my city has. It’s right there, throughout all the growth, all the nationalities that pass by, we still have some things that are really Danang.

Before I wanted to move somewhere else but the older I get the more I love this city. Nha Trang is a great place for people to relax. Life here is so peaceful, it’s not slow, but it’s still so peaceful.

My first reason for staying in Hoi An was to chill on the beach and hang out. When I went to the market I said, 'Wow, look at all this food!' I bought a whole bunch. I brought all the food back to my hotel, and they said, 'What are you doing with all these shrimp and fish and vegetables?' I said, 'I want to cook!' I love the food resources here. It’s amazing.

When you walk around, you'll find that there is always an alley or little lane next to every house which leads you to different world behind it. Once you walk inside those alleys, you will find a whole family or even three different generations living in this same house. This is the most beautiful thing I love here: that we can be so close to each other and all family members squeeze in a little cozy house and still happy with it.

Most of the visitors coming to Nha Trang forget the local corners behind the hotels, and don’t go further into the countryside or the rice fields. If travellers want to have a real adventurous day, they should make friends with a local who can lead them to the waterfalls. For me I like the forest for hiking and the waterfalls for swimming — it’s still natural and a bit private.

It’s kind of weird, because we are living inside the change, sometimes we don’t feel the pace of it. If you sit back and realize so many things have happened so rapidly, it’s crazy.

My wife, Marian, and I love Vietnam’s beautiful coastline, delicious fresh food, and the friendliness of the people. We chose Nha Trang as our home for its perfect balance of being a small beach town with the excitement of a big city. Though there are many cool places in Nha Trang, I love being at the office, LIVIN collective. It’s where the community, different cultures, creativity, dreams and changes all collide with each other.
