Nha Trang – Vietnam
Nha Trang is Vietnams beach resort town. A major face-lift in 1995-96, and the opening of two upscale hotels later in 1996, vaulted Nha Trang onto the playing field with places like Phuket, Thailand, and Cancun, Mexico. Today, its a popular destination for both foreign and domestic tourists.
In addition to sun bathing, popular attractions include boat trips to the nearby islands and tours of Nha Trangs historic sites. If you like typical beach resort towns, then Nha Trang is for you.
Nha Trang is on the central coast, about 450 km north of Saigon and 1,200 km south of Hanoi. The main strip in Nha Trang is Tran Phu Street, which runs north-south along the sea for about 4 kilometers. It is a wide boulevard, bisected by a grassy median with street lamps. Numerous restaurants and bars line the beach side of Tran Phu, while hotels and more restaurants line the other. A walking path and wide swath of trees separate the beach from the road.
Not surprisingly, life in Nha Trang centers on the beach. In the early mornings and late afternoons, especially on weekends, youll find the beach packed with locals. In addition to swimming, football (soccer) is a popular pastime, and youll find numerous games in progress. During the heat of the day, the locals surrender the beach to mostly foreign sun-worshippers. In the evenings the beach is all but deserted.

A typical itinerary includes visiting 2 or 3 islands, snorkeling and lunch, all for about US$8 per person. For serious snorkelers and divers who want to spend more time in the water, two local dive operators offer
