Burgas is the fourth biggest town in Bulgaria and an affordable summer (June to September) travel destination for water sports fans and beach vacation destinations in general.
During summer the town is full of tourists – especially because it has lots of affordable shopping alternatives in comparisson to the nearby situated resort Sunny Beach.
In the off season (October to May) it is a nice destination to enjoy delicious Bulgarian food and the calm of the Black Sea since there are almost no tourists and hotel/hostel prices are cheaper (by about 50%).
Here are some moments from my trip to Burgas in March 2017. Enjoy!
My first destination in Bulgaria was its capital and hugest city Sofia.
It is a very important cultural and business town attracting lots of young people to try their luck and start a new life. Furthermore it is famous for its party and nightlife scene as well as its good value for small budget offers to travelers.
Located in the south of Vietnam – Nha Trang is a popular destination for divers, sun lovers and tourists particularily looking for Russian companionship.
“If you would like to get to know some Russian people, you shall better go to Nha Trang or Mui Ne”, that is what I have heard from several fellow expats and travelmates.
I can’t tell about Mui Ne, because I skipped this city for that time I was in Vietnam, but when it comes to Nha Trang – it is definitely true.
Most of the tourists I met in the city were speaking Russian. Since I speak the language, this was not an issue for me – I welcomed the opportunity to practice – but I understand why e.g. English or German speaking fellows did not feel very “in Vietnam” in this particular city.
What I found exceptionally fun are the street signs, which are written mostly in Vietnamese, Russian and English – sometimes even in Chinese language.
I liked the flair of the city and especially the availability of different kinds of restaurants (concerning the coutry of origin of the cuisine). A Russian and Armenian restaurant as well as a traditional Vietnamese restaurant in a small street next to the central beach were my favourite.
Accept for eating, drinking, enjoying the sun and going for a dive/snorkeling trip there is also a temple and a mud bath in the near surrounding.
The town’s most famous places are situated in walking distance from the beach or reachable by bus or bike within 10 minutes.
