Sandwiched between green, forested hills and the bright blue sea, Nha Trang enjoys one of the prettiest settings of any beach resort in Vietnam. Its wide, crescent-shaped bay is dotted with tropical islands and its shore is lined with parks, gardens and waterfront promenades.
Though Nha Trang has a long history and a rich culture to explore, the majority of the visitors that come to this vibrant seaside metropolis are attracted by the resort’s expansive beach. Easy to access from most of Nha Trang’s central hotels, the beach is big enough to give all holidaymakers their very own piece of paradise. Alternatively, if visitors want a more secluded beach experience, they can head out into the bay and explore the resort’s many idyllic islands.
As well as being the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun, Nha Trang is also a great destination for holidaymakers who want to try their hand at scuba diving. The bay’s warm waters and wealth of marine life have turned Nha Trang into the diving capital of Vietnam, and a number of diving schools can be found in the resort. Surfing, sailing and snorkelling are also available in Nha Trang, giving holidaymakers a great selection of activities to choose from.
When they’re not exploring the beaches and bays of Nha Trang, holidaymakers can discover a choice of shops, cafes and great restaurants on the roads that run down to the waterfront. Both local and international cuisines are available in the town’s restaurants, with a selection of street food stands offering visitors the chance to try authentic Vietnamese treats.
As the restaurants begin to wind down at the end of the evening, holidaymakers head to the many clubs and bars found across Nha Trang. Welcoming a mix of Vietnamese and international party-goers, these lively venues are full of revellers well into the wee hours.
Visitors who want to learn a little more about Nha Trang’s rich history should visit the Po Nagar Cham Towers. Built by the Cham civilisation between the 7th and 12th centuries, these brick towers are some of the most historic sights in the city. Other popular cultural attractions include the Alexandre Yersin Museum, the Long Son Pagoda and Nha Trang Cathedral.
Offering vibrant nightlife, an expansive beach and rich culture, Nha Trang is a great destination for holidaymakers who want to experience life in modern Vietnam.
