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.
