Nha Trang is Vietnam’s most famous seaside resort-town. It’s more lively and urban in character than other quieter beach destinations like Mui Ne and Phu Quoc. It’s also the scuba diving centre of Vietnam.
Its beautiful sandy beach is a long, curving stretch along Tran Phu Street backed by a promenade, hotels and seafood restaurants. Cable cars cross over to Hòn Tre island and the Vinpearl Resort, with a golf course, water park and fairground.
