White sand beaches, seaside resorts, ancient ruins, and a lively nightlife make the coastal city of Nha Trang one of Vietnam’s most popular travel destinations. The city’s ongoing popularity with domestic vacationers makes it a more affordable destination than most other places, with an impressive amount of affordable accommodations throughout the city.
The history of the ancient Champa kingdom is evident in the city’s architecture, and some of the Hindu stone towers looming over treetops. Nha Trang’s Oceanographic Museum
is a favorite among families as kids are able to see and interact with many rare species of the sea. As Nha Trang is a coastal city, a day trip to the many beaches is not to be missed, with Nha Trang Beach
being the most convenient to the city center.
Around the city can be found many exciting cultural outlets, religious sites, waterfalls, secluded beaches, and remote fishing villages. Nha Trang truly does feature an interesting balance between an exciting metropolis and a relaxing beach town with an interesting history. The city is broken down into a few separate districts, with most hotels concentrated in the Loc Tho and Xuang Huan wards.
Since the opening of Nha Trang Airport
in 2004, getting to this city has been much easier for international travelers.
