I’ll start off by saying I always enjoy reading other TR so I thought I would post my first TR. I've been meaning to do this for a while. This TR is part of a longer trip I had taken through Vietnam. My total trip was MSN-DEN-SFO-TPE-HAN-HUI-NHA-SGN-TPE-SFO-ORD-MSN. One big surprise of this trip was my SGN-TPE-SFO flight which was aboard EVA’s brand new 777 on its first day of revenue service and only its second revenue flight of the day.
The following is my TR from NHA-SGN. I’m thinking about writing the other flights, I’ll see how this one goes first.

Nha Trang(NHA)-Saigon (SGN)
Our tour bus dropped off us at the Nha Thrang's airport about a 1:30 before our flight to Saigon. Nha Trang's airport is about a 25 min ride south of the city. If I’m not mistaken this airport is an old military base from the war.
Check in took some time as there was about 25 of us along with another 200 plus all checking in for our flight to SGN and a flight to HAN. Our tour guide checked us all after about 30 mins of pushing our way up to the front of the ticket counter, it was pretty chaotic.
After finally checking our bags we began to head past security and then up stairs to the waiting area. The waiting was quite full as you can see.
I sat for about 20 minutes until our aircraft arrived from SGN.
Our plane to SGN just arriving
Deplaning went pretty quick and before long everyone made their way to the staircase which leads down to the awaiting buses. After getting the last seat on the bus we drove out to the aircraft.
Just off the bus boarding the plane
Since I was on one of the first buses out to the aircraft we waited about 20 minutes before the aircraft doors closed and we began our taxi to the active.
Just arrived from HAN
After a 5 minute taxi to the active we took off to the north and turned over the South China Sea (or South Asia Sea as the Vietnamese say).
