List of All Attractions in Nha Trang by Alphabetical Order

Nha Trang attractions are undoubtedly diverse, ranging from natural formations and historical structures to modern theme parks and sprawling aquariums with hundreds of marine species and thriving coral reefs. While there are plenty of full-day and half-day tours which cover most of Nha Trang’s most iconic landmarks, it’s also fairly easy to get around on foot, bicycle, and motorcycle.

Nha Trang is also a favourite destination for nature lovers thanks to its alluring combination of tranquil countryside, natural hot springs, salt fields, and unique waterfalls. As a first-time visitor, deciding on what to see in this lively coastal town can be quite the challenge. To help you get started on your travel itinerary, here’s a full list of Nha Trang attractions.

All Attractions A to Z in Nha Trang

Alexandre Yersin Museum

Alexandre Yersin, the French medical pioneer, is well remembered in Vietnam, where he was affectionately called Ông Năm. Surprisingly and as a sign of the deep respect the Vietnamese have for him, following the country's independence, streets named in his honour kept their designation, and his tomb in Suoi Dau was graced by a pagoda where rites are performed. His house in Nha Trang is now the Yersin Museum.

At the museum visitors can get an idea of the work of Yersin. He founded Dalat, discovered a vital plague-causing bacterium, and researched agricultural methods and meteorological forecasting, all to the great benefit of the Vietnamese. Yersin arrived in Nha Trang in 1891 and dedicated the rest of his life to scientific discovery from his laboratory here, until his passing away in 1943. He founded the institute in 1895. On display are his desk, a rich library and his scientific instruments.
