Leg No. 13:  Nha Trang-Phan Rang (106 km).

On this leg, you will continue biking South on Highway 1A toward the towns of Cam Ranh and Phan Rang.

This is the easiest leg to bike on of all the trans-Vietnam bike legs.  This feat is not easily accomplished without help – in the form of a tail wind.  The tail wind is so strong on this leg that you can bike at a pace of 30 km/hr without much effort.  On this leg, you will move away from the pristine beaches of Nha Trang.  On your far right ahead will appear the mountain ranges of Dak Lak, and the town of Phan Rang lies a mere 106 km away.  Along the way, you will see Tháp Chàm temples.  These are remnants of a once thriving civilization in Vietnam.  Although, the civilization no longer exists, the Tháp Chàm temples are a reminder of what’s left of this civilization.  You can observe the Tháp Chàm temples along Highway 1A before you enter into Phan Rang.  If you have time, take a detour and pay a visit to these temples.  They are rich in design and architecture.  Phan Rang is a small, idyllic town situated near the coast.  If you like staying near the water, Ninh Chử hotel, sits adjacent to the ocean waters.  Enjoy a swim in the luke-warm water before turning in for the night.  In Phan Rang, get to sleep early so you can get a good night’s rest.  The following day ride into the Highlands of Vietnam is guaranteed to be a long biking day.
