Hon Mieu Aquarium

Nha Trang

Billed as an outdoor aquarium, it's actually more a fish-breeding farm where over 40 species of fish, crustacean and other marine creatures are raised. The whole place is somewhat run-down and they also keep large marine turtles in tanks here. Ferries (5000d) head here from the main dock regularly.
