Nha Trang
Travel Guide

Nha Trang which includes street scenes, motorcycle riding and a coastal town

One of Vietnam’s best-known beach cities offers blue-green waters and white sand close to cafés, historical sites and restaurants serving delicious local cuisine.

Nha Trang became a popular beach getaway over the course of the 20th century. Today it attracts visitors from all over the world and has recently seen a period of rapid development. Although apartment buildings and upmarket hotels are now a common sight around the beach and tourist areas, it only takes a short walk to find the narrow streets and houses that represent the Nha Trang of old.

Nha Trang’s main beach is by far its biggest asset, and its beauty lives up to its fame. To escape the crowds, however, head across the bridge to Bai Duong Beach where the waters are calmer, the sand is cleaner, and there are fewer people to obstruct your view of the sea.

To explore the world beneath the waves, organize a diving session with one of many schools in the city. Instructors are excellent and rates are low. Snorkelers can access the biggest and best range of marine life by jumping aboard a boat and heading out to the nearby islands. Anyone looking to try their hand at surfing can take lessons or just rent a board and go.

The weather in Nha Trang is warm and fine before October and after mid-December. If you are visiting in the wet season, which includes winter, the city has plenty of indoor attractions to keep you busy on a rainy day. Vietnam’s National Oceanographic Museum and a museum dedicated to the bacteriologist Alexandre Yersin are both well worth a visit.

Experience local heritage at the Po Nagar Cham Towers. A relic from the Cham civilization of the eighth century, this temple complex is still a place of worship today. Other landmark buildlings include the Long Son Pagoda temple and Nha Trang’s cathedral, a dramatic French neo-Gothic construction.

At night, enjoy the excellent restaurants and bars all around the city. Note that things usually wind down well before midnight.

Nha Trang is a place to spend hot summer days lounging on the beach or sipping a cool drink at a café. If you ever need a break from the beach, you’ll still find plenty to see and do inland.

"總體而言,這所公寓的服務十分優良。性價比高,公寓空間較大 , 即使三個人一同居住也不覺得擠迫 ,雖然沒有前台服務,但特別感謝這裏的工作人員Amy。還記得第一天向她反映房間太近走廊, 光線有點刺眼, 她便二話不說向我們提出可以換房,態度誠懇 真摯。在離開的一天更特別為我們安排空間存放行李, 讓我們出外遊玩時毫無掛慮,可以一心一意享受這個假期。"

If you want to eat the proper vietnamese food then go a couple of roads inland for better options. Try the rainforest cafe for awesome smoothies and excellent food in really nice surroundings.

I felt Nha Trang was the Vietnamese version of Pattaya in Thailand, its not what I was looking for in a beach destination. It felt like Blackpool.

Mixed feelings about Nha Trang. Beautiful beach, however it's been overrun by tourists and so has lost a bit of it's charm.
