Perched on a pristine stretch of the southern coast, Nha Trang is a playground for sunseekers. Days here are spent dining on delicious seafood, snorkelling around stunning islands, and partying on the sand after dark. Nha Trang lays claim to some of the country’s finest luxury resorts and thrilling watersports. Despite the development boom, colourful fishing villages and serene riverside restaurants are just a stone’s throw away.
Rainy season in Nha Trang takes place from September to December, but the southern coast is less prone to heavy storms than its northern counterparts. In fact, Nha Trang gets the most sunshine in the country, meaning travellers can arrive at any time of year and still enjoy their coastal visit.
To reach Nha Trang travellers have the option of arriving by plane, train or bus. Flights from Vietnam’s major cities connect to Nha Trang, while trains travel the coast, heading either north or south. Buses are easy enough to take from Đà Lạt, Hội An or other neighbouring destinations. Taxis are widely available in Nha Trang city. Motorbike tours are a great way to pop by popular spots, from mud baths to Po Nagar Cham Tower. Cycling is another laid back option. Finally, book a speedboat tour to go island-hopping and discover hidden beaches.
