Nha Trang Travel Guide

Plan Your Nha Trang Vacation

Home to Vietnam's best beaches and dive sites, the coastal city of Nha Trang is a magnet for those seeking sunshine and underwater adventure. Backdropped by mountains and cityscape are white sandy coves sheltering lovely bays and distant islands. The capital of Khanh Hoa province, Nha Trang lacks the culture found in neighboring areas but still has a few temples and such to remind you that you're

in Vietnam. But don't be surprised to find signs written in Russian—more than 10,000 Russians come here each month. Now is the time to visit Nha Trang; Bai Dai Beach is slated for development, and by 2018 it won't be so pristine.

Top Reasons To Go

  1. For the beaches—As the country's premier resort town, this coastal gem has white-sand coves and warm waters, especially near Bai Dai Beach, where a string of food stalls sell the day's catch with a bucket of beer.
  2. For the history—Perched on a hill at the mouth of the Cai River, the Po Nagar Towers give a glimpse into the Kingdom of Champa, which dominated the southern and central coast from the 2nd century to 17th century.
  3. For the underwater exploration—The protected marine park at the nearby island of Hon Mun offers some of the best diving and snorkeling in Vietnam.
