8-hour, private Nha Trang tour
Visit an oceanographic museum
Learn about local history at a Catholic church and temple site
Start with 8:30am pickup at your hotel in Nha Trang, where you’ll meet your private guide for a day of exploring the city and surrounding area. Come prepared with temple-ready garb, as all visitors to the Cham Towers must cover their arms and legs.
Make the first stop at the National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam to see a vast collection of fish, invertebrates, and preserved specimens, among the largest collections in Southeast Asia. Continue to Nha Tho Nui, or Stone Church, a landmark of Western architecture that’s the seat of the Khanh Hoa province Catholic diocese.
Get sweeping views of the rugged coast and islands from Hon Chong, a promontory where you’ll see kids diving from the cliffs, an island topped with a Buddhist temple, and a beach that’s a favorite getaway for locals. Visit a nearby restaurant for lunch, then head to the Po Nagar Cham Towers, a fascinating temple complex whose intricately decorated towers are still used for worship and ceremonies. The final stop of the day is Dam Market, an ideal place for soaking up the local atmosphere and shopping for unique souvenirs.
This 8-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

I wish our tour guide would've...

I wish our tour guide would've recommend us mostly me on what to wear or bring. Although my husband was able to go into the Buddhist temple, I was not. I had on shorts and a tank top I was not able to enter the Buddhist temple. It really sucked because if I had known I would've brought a sarong and light cardigan to cover up. The tour could've been better if our guide would've hung out with us more at the market and explained about the different types of food/snacks we were seeing. We had a private tour so it wasn't like anyone was waiting on us. Plus we were ahead of schedule by 2 hours. We told him that we didn't care too much about the souvenir shops because we experienced all that already. So we only spent 30 min there and off we went to have lunch. Before our lunch came we had to fill out a survey, rating the tour and then hand it back to him. Of course we were going to say good things. He was going to read it right after anyway. It's not like our tour or tour guide was all bad. But after coming from Ho Chi Minh City doing the Saigon Riders Tour, Culture Day Tour was just ok to us. Could've been better.
