While the fine powdery white crescent beach is a highlight of the shoreline, regular makeovers have produced parks, sculpture gardens, bright promenades and beachside luxury resorts. Activities such as sailboating, kiteboarding, scuba diving are quite popular here all year due to the excellent weather.
Nha Trang is equally popular among backpackers and splurgers alike. The streets near and along the shorelines are home to small boutiques, spas and cocktail bars.
When coming to Nha Trang, besides beautiful beaches, there are many places you can visit, for example:
Ba Ho Waterfalls
Ba Ho Falls is a group of three waterfalls popular for cliff jumping. The bottom falls is the most crowded but easiest to reach by a half-hour trek through the lush green jungle. The other two waterfalls have a harder climb. Located at an hour’s drive from Nha Trang, the scenic waterfalls also have a panoramic view of the surrounding. The serene pools bubbling at the end of the Ba Ho waterfalls are perfect for plunging into and relaxing.
Po Nagar Cham Towers
The Po Nagar Cham Towers are an ancient Hindu temple complex located on Mount Cu Lau. It is one of the oldest monumental structures in Vietnam built between the 8th and 11th centuries. The primary deity here is Po Nagar, or “The Mother of the Country”. The compound has four red brick towers, of which the tallest North Tower features a beautiful 1.2 m tall statue of Yan Po Nagar sitting cross-legged. There is also a small museum displaying sculptures and stoneworks.
The Po Nagar Towers were built by the people of the Cham Empire, who were Hindus by religion. This monument showcases their exceptional architectural skill and artistic levels.
One of the more unusual attractions of Vietnam, Monkey Island is located about 10 km away from the centre of Nha Trang. Accessible via a boat or a ferry, the private island is said to house about 1,500 monkeys who are free to roam around. Dog and monkey shows are held thrice a day, and the island is lined by pretty beaches with quaint huts.
National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam
The National Oceanographic Museum in southern Nha Trang features a vast array of marine life, from sharks and whales to sea turtles and reef fish. Its spread across two floors in a gorgeous French building. The first floor houses glass tanks where anemones, puffers, lionfish and coral reefs thrive, while the second floor has about thousands of exhibits of preserved animal skeletons.
