The high-rise, high-energy beach resort of Nha Trang enjoys a stunning setting: it's ringed by a necklace of hills, with a turquoise bay dotted with tropical islands.
A sweeping crescent beach of white sand defines the shoreline, backed by an impressive promenade dotted with parks and sculpture gardens. Inland there's a cosmopolitan array of boutiques and dining options.
As restaurants wind down, nightlife cranks up – central Nha Trang is a party town at heart. Until relatively recently a lot of the bar action was geared at the backpacker market, but today it's mainly aimed at the burgeoning numbers of Russian and Asian tourists.
There are more sedate activities on offer, too. Try an old-school spa treatment with a visit to a mudbath, book a river cruise or explore the ancient Cham towers north of the center.
These are our favorite local haunts, touristy spots, and hidden gems throughout Nha Trang.
