Located along a sublime stretch of beach on the south-central coast, Nha Trang is blessed with a spectacular backdrop of towering mountains and exquisite offshore islands dotted around its turquoise bay. Nha Trang has a dual persona - inland it’s a bustling city of commerce whilst along the coast it's Vietnam’s most popular beach resort and a veritable haven for tourism. Boat trips in the bay are very popular, hopping between the beautiful islands, visiting quaint fishing villages, beautiful coves and snorkelling or scuba diving in the crystal clear waters. There are also plenty of other water sports on offer including wakeboarding and waterskiing and the local mud baths are popular for a spot of pampering. Historic sites include the ancient Cham Towers of Po Nagar - perched upon a hilltop with breathtaking views of the surrounding area and Long Son Pagoda with its towering white Buddha.
