Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa

Nha Trang is the provincial capital of Khanh Hoa Province, in the South-Central Coast of Vietnam. For long, Nha Trang has been popular to Vietnamese tourists as well as foreign visitors thanks to the famed sandy beaches. Nha Trang Bay is claimed among the 29 most beautiful sea bays in the world with turquoise sea water, colorful coral reefs, offshore islands ringed with fine sand beaches.

Nha Trang was once a principality of Champa Kingdom which thrived in the Central Region of Vietnam from the 2nd century A.D to the 15th century. The legacy left is Po Nagar Cham Towers dating back to the 7th century, 5km north of the city center. There are traditional performances at the temple by local Cham everyday. A trip to the temple takes half a day and is definitely recommended to every traveler to Nha Trang.

Nha Trang Beach

Though Nha Trang is a beauty, it is a popular tourist attraction for young travellers than for senior folks. It may be because that it is a destination for more active holidays than purely relaxing ones or it may be that senior travelers would tend to choose Mui Ne Beach in Phan Thiet. Foreign visitors to Nha Trang normally stay a few nights in the city for beach holidays, for snorkeling or scuba-diving around the offshore islands.

 The several offshore islands on the Nha Trang Bay and to the north of Nha Trang Bay offer chances of either luxury vacations and getaway holidays on a budget. Having islands holidays here, you’ll have to use food and other services within the resorts as they are quite secluded.
