Backdropped by rugged mountains, lush paddy fields, and golden sands, Nha Trang is one of Vietnam's premier beach destinations.
Though not as charming as some of Vietnam's smaller beach resorts, it's not surprising that the thriving beach city of Nha Trang is one of Vietnam's most popular destinations. Vibrant by day and scintillating by night, our resorts are set a little outside of the city so guests can easily enjoy the peaceful countryside along with all of its cosmopolitan delights. Whether you're looking to amp up the adrenaline with exciting water sports, to inspire your spirit visiting ancient ruins or Buddhist temples, or just to indulge in the dozens of high-quality restaurants, spas, and nightclubs, it's perfect for any traveller seeking a simple seaside break.
Ideal for families, Nha Trang's stunning six kilometre beachfront is fantastic for swimming, water sports, and scuba diving. Lined with laid-back bars and restaurants where you can discover some of the freshest seafood and most authentic Vietnamese cuisine, it's one of the best places to watch the sunset over the East Sea. There's an abundance of marine life, as well as 19 untouched miniature islands to visit, including the famous Monkey Island, home to over 1,000 wild monkeys.
For a dash of culture, venture a few kilometres north of the city to discover some of the best-preserved ruins in the whole of Vietnam – the Po Nagar Towers. Constructed by the Cham people who once ruled central Vietnam, this 1,200 year old Hindu temple is one of the most magnificent and memorable sights in the area. Afterwards, head to a show at one of the local water puppet theatres to experience a traditional art beloved by generations of locals.
After a long day spent exploring, tourists can surrender to complete relaxation at the Thap Ba Hot Springs. Renowned for their therapeutic healing properties, the natural mud baths and mineral water springs are kept at a soothing 38 degrees, and can supposedly cure any ailment.

Best Time To Go
January to August
Nha Trang's position in southern central Vietnam gives the region its prolonged dry season, which stretches from January to August. During this time temperatures will also average around 28ºC, making any of these months an ideal time to visit. The peak time for tourists is between June and August, so if you want to beat the crowds, hold off until early September - the beaches and cities should be less busy by then.
