Nha Trang Vietnam is a charming city on the south- central coast of Vietnam known for its beaches and scuba diving sites. It is becoming a popular destination for both local and international tourists looking for a spot of relaxation or a splash of adventure.

Historically, the city was known as Kauthara under the Champa. Visitors can still see the famous Po Nagar Tower perched on a hilltop at the mouth of the river. The ancient Champa temple was restored by a local king in 784 AD after being ransacked by invaders who made off with its treasure.

While Nha Trang is a centre for marine science based at the Nha Trang Oceanography Institute, it is now more known for its fun in the sun mentality. If you prefer your marine life served on a plate, it is also the best place in Vietnam to order up a couple of lobsters.

One of Vietnam’s most scenic drives, Tran Phu Street runs along the ocean and is referred to as the Pacific Coast Highway of Vietnam. If you don’t have time to take a drive, fear not, for your taxi will take this road to the airport.

From the beach, you will be able to see Hon Tre Island (Bamboo Island). The motorised cable car system is the world’s longest, linking the mainland to the five star resort and theme park. The myriad of other islands in the bay, from Hon Tam, the setting of an extensive eco-resort, to Hon Lao, the home to troops of wild monkeys, will ensure that your stay is anything but ordinary.
