Nha Trang is one of Vietnam’s most popular coastal cities, and is the capital of Khanh Hoa Province. It offers a six-kilometre stretch of pristine beaches with turquoise water, as well as 19 islets which you can reach by boat. The coastal town has gained a ton of popularity in the last years and it’s rare that you will see it empty. Instead, Nha Trang is filled with both locals and foreigners who are sunbathing on the beach, sightseeing, visiting the Buddhist temples, waterfalls as well as the natural hot springs (yes, they have them here!).
Nha Trang is the perfect destination for the one who wants to enjoy the tropical climate in Vietnam, have a more relaxing vacation, yet still have a lot of options besides being on the beach.
