About Nha Trang

A high-rise, high-energy coastal city in southern Vietnam, Nha Trang is a fabulous beach destination. Fringed by a range of verdant mountains and overlooking a spectacular bay dotted with tropical islands, the city has long been popular with visitors from Ho Chi Minh City and further afield. Accommodation options are wide-ranging, with everything from simple guesthouses to splendid oceanfront resorts, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets. Our recommendations for the best places to stay in Nha Trang are perfect for couples, friends and families alike.

For most travellers, a trip to Nha Trang is all about the ocean. The bay and its beautiful islands boast some of the most spectacular snorkelling and diving sites in Vietnam. Spot colourful tropical fish, moray eels and pufferfish darting through thriving coral reefs, or sunbathe on board wonderful private sailboats on a day-long island-hopping tour. Don't miss the chance to kayak, wind surf, sail and swim in glorious azure waters.

Venture inland to follow idyllic hiking and cycling routes through picturesque villages, farmland and lush hills. Wallow in restorative mud baths, try rafting on rushing rivers, discover the intriguing Alexandre Yersin Museum and marvel at the centuries-old Cham Towers whilst you’re in the city. Nha Trang is a party town at heart, and you’ll find buzzy beach bars, lively seafood restaurants and hip clubs clustered close to the coast. Kick back at one of the best places to stay in Nha Trang after a big night out!
