Nha Trang is one of Vietnam’s most high-rising and high-energy cities. Discover a brimming crescent beach of white sand, an emerald necklace of rolling hills, and endless avenues of vibrant eateries and night spots. Below are seven reasons to love and visit Nha Trang.

Vinpearl  Resort

Vinperal Resort is an extraordinarily luxurious resort. The facility boasts a five-star hotel, the longest sea crossing cable-way in the world, one of the longest white-shore beaches in Vietnam, and the largest outdoor swimming pool in southeast Asia. The aforementioned make the Vinpearl Resort an exceptionally accommodating getaway for families. What makes it even more idyllic is that it is located on a separate island, and houses Vietnam’s top water amusement park. Consider immersing yourself in the luxe while donning unique cut-out swimwear from Cacdemode.

Po Nagar

Po Nagar has some of the most sacred Buddhist temples in the world.  They are thought to have been first used for worship in 200 A.D. The towers were built between the 7th and 12th centuries and are still visited by devote Cham, Chinese, and Vietnamese Buddhists. The complex, which originally had eight towers, now only consists of four. The tallest and most magnificent one is the 28 meter North Tower (Thap Chinh), which was first constructed in 817 A.D.


A nice counterpart to Lady Buddha in Danang, this white marble giant sits on top of a lotus behind Long Son Pagoda. Beside the Buddha you will find seven fire-ringed relief busts, each belonging to a Buddhist monk who died in self-immolation in 1963. Fourteen yards high and nothing short of magnificent, the statue is visible from all angles across the city.

Lanterns Vietnamese Restaurant

Frequented by over 3,000 foreign tourists in recent years, this restaurant is famous for its heavy lantern decorations. A long line awaits, so get here early. Expect to meet a large number of cheerful locals mingling with tourists  If you are open to chatter, you may find the lines quite delightful. What awaits you after the line is an excellent selection of food worth the wait. We recommend the “Street Style” section. A portion of the proceeds are given to an orphanage every week and free soup kitchens are regularly held for the homeless. This is a restaurant that does well by doing good.

Nha Trang Cathedral

You will find a gorgeous concoction of Gothic architecture in this cathedral. Built between 1928 and 1933, it boasts stained glass windows, a crucifix outlined in neon red, and a statue of Mary adorned by a white neon halo. It is situated on a small hill overlooking the train station. The catheral is a popular spot for weddings and landscape photography.

Jetski Tours

A landscape dotted with beautiful islands and white shorelines, against backdrop of a rising city, must be viewed via jet ski. The staff pick you up and drop you off from your hotel, and make stops along Nha Trang’s North Island, also famously called the Monkey Island. There, you can enjoy a monkey circus while also trekking through the island and feeding the monkeys yourself.

Impressions Museum

This museum is a perfect place for families to have fun. Discover impressions of Mona Lisa hanging her feet off the frame, or giant over-sized shoes made for Goliath. Kids generally love the upside down rooms. Millennials cherish the infinite opportunities for quirky Instagram photos. You will not find any place like this in the United States.

Long Thanh Art Studio

Long Thanh is world  renowned for his collections of black and white photographs, as they each offer a masterclass in capturing striking moments and evoking emotion through meticulous detail. Each photograph is accompanied by a story, giving viewers the chance to learn something new. They aim to express the highs and lows of the very essence of life in Vietnam.
