Everything you Need to Know about Nha Trang
Often called the Riviera of the South China Sea, Nha Trang has a long stretch of beautiful coastline; miles of white, sandy beaches with mountains at each end, framed by the dramatic backdrop of mountain ranges, as well as several other good beaches close by (Doc Let Beach, Dai Lanh Beach and Bai Tru Beach) and more than 19 islands (of which serene Bamboo Island is possibly the best-known).
Scuba diving and snorkeling are two very popular pastimes, thanks to clear aqua waters, an abundant underwater life and colourful coral reefs. Beaches here are any beach lover’s dream with their white sand, and many types of boat trips are available to explore the surrounding islands. A smattering of seafood eateries in the road that runs alongside the beach serve up a wide selection of seafood and shell fish, and the many cafés and bars are favourite hang-outs for tourists to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and picturesque scenery. Bicycle tours are also very popular, or you can rent a cyclo for a tour of the Cham ruins, local market and Buddhist shrines.
