Nha Trang Travel Guide
Pack your bags, C-List celebrities! You've just won a trip to... where? Given its name, the Miss Universe pageant can be held anywhere from here to the planet formerly known as Pluto, but perhaps co-hosts Mel "Scary Spice" Brown and Jerry Springer were surprised to learn they're headed not to Rio or Rome but to Nha Trang.
Nha Trang is actually a popular tourist destination on the southeastern coast of Vietnam, known for its great scuba diving. The Super World Travelers Brangelina have already been there, of course.
In the past 10 years, Miss Universe has been held in the US and Puerto Rico a total of four times, though other less-familiar locales like Cyprus and Ecuador have also played host.

It's Friday again, and as far as we're concered, that means an empty city. In many places, summer Fridays equal destered streets because people head out to the vacation homes.
Unless they live in Nha Trang, Vietnam, where this pic was taken. Long live the scooter, and the beach town that operates the whole year 'round. Have yourself a scooterrific weekend, folks.
