29-Jan-2014 -- We spent 3 weeks in Viet Nam in January to visit our older daughter who has now settled in Ho Chi Minh City. We took our chance to visit N16 E108 and N10 E104 during our trip since these 2 points were close to our itinerary.

After our trip in the Da Nang area, we headed south and spent 2 days on the wonderful Phu Quoc island (Picture 7). N10 E104 is located south of the island and is very easy to reach since there are a number of local travel companies operating from the port of An Thoi and offering scuba diving and snorkeling trips. That is exactly what we did and we had a very cool vacation day bathing and diving from the boat. On the return trip I asked the captain to reach the point with his boat. He didn’t really understand what was the reasons for asking him to make this little side trip but he kindly accepted. We reached the point after a 10 min navigation in open sea. Due to my position on the deck of the boat, the only clear picture of the GPS receiver screen was taken when we were at less than 50 meters from the point. Close enough to validate the first visit for 3 members of the team and worth a celebration drink on the beach that same night (picture 8).
