Things to Do in Nha Trang

The coastal town of Nha Trang is the heart of Vietnam’s beach resort scene. It’s got a vibrant, urban city center, a long white-sand beach along a beautiful turquoise bay, all backed by verdant hills. For most visitors, the beach is the main draw, and here you can find everything from lounge chairs on the sand to swimming areas and Jet Ski rentals. Nha Trang is also well known for its scuba diving and snorkeling, with boat trips to explore fish covered walls and coral gardens within the Hon Mun Marine Protected Area. Away from the beach, you won’t want to miss Po Nagar Cham Towers. These four ornately designed towers with elaborate carvings were built along the bank of the Cai River more than 1,000 years ago and are still used as houses of worship. And at Thap Ba Hot Springs and Mud Baths you can enjoy a relaxing soak in thermal pools, mudpits and a waterfall.

Hon Mun Island
46 Tours and Activities

This stunning island is located in close proximity to the hot-sea currents that rise from the equator. As a result, it’s home to incredible underwater coral reefs that attract topical fish, sea turtles and other rare and beautiful marine life. The warm waters that draw diverse wildlife also bring researchers, oceanographers and snorkelers to the shores of Hon Mun Island.

It’s possible to explore the waters from the safety and comfort of a glass bottom boat, but travelers say that dipping below the surface and getting up close with local wildlife is the best way to truly experience the beauty of Hon Mun. Almost every dive shop in the vicinity offers trips to the crystal clear waters of Hon Mun, where visibility is almost always ideal. Rainbow Reef and Tiger Wall are two of the most popular dive sites near Hon Mun Island.

61 Tours and Activities

Situated at the mouth of the Cai River in Central Vietnam, just a few kilometres north of Nha Trang, is the ancient Po Nagar Cham Towers complex. Constructed between the 7th and 12th centuries by the Cham people who once ruled the central plain of Vietnam, the towers were built in honor of Yan Po Nagar, the ruler of this area, who later came to be identified with the Hindu goddess, Bhagavati. Today, only four of the original towers in the complex remain. The tallest of the temples, Po Nagar Kalan, is the most impressive in terms of architectural prowess. It stands at over 25 meters tall and, according to the inscriptions, was the place where Po Nagar was worshipped, with animal sacrifices made in her honor. In the center of the complex is at the Cri Cambhu tower, representing the goddess of fertility, with the remaining two temples serving as shrines to the Hindu gods, Shiva and Ganesh.

Hon Chong
28 Tours and Activities

Along the mountainous coastline north of Nha Trang, Hon Chong (Husband Rock) is made up of huge rock formations piled on top of each other that run from the land down into the sea. The views are what people come here for, with a fantastic landscape of rocks, beach, ocean, and neighboring islands to feast your eyes on. Around 300 meters south of Hon Chong lies the tiny Hon Do (Red Island), which features its own Buddhist temple. To the northeast is Hon Rua (Tortoise Island), so called because of its tortoise shape, while the two islands of Hon Yen (Bird’s Nest Island) lie out to the east. As the area is not particularly large and won’t take long to see, many visitors combine a trip here with a visit to the Po Nagar Cham Towers, which are around a five­-minute taxi ride away.
