5 great things to do in Nha Trang

Lychees for lunch

Heading to Nha Trang, Vietnam and not sure what to do? I've spent the past couple of days at the seriously stunning, just-opened Fusion Resort, so I have a few ideas to keep you entertained!

1. Relax on the beach!

The beach is the main reason that most tourists visit Nha Trang, and it’s not hard to see why. Beautiful white sand, hot hot sun and the warmest sea you can imagine - what else could you possibly need?

This is the beach in front of my villa at the newly opened and seriously stunning Fusion Resort Nha Trang, where I am lucky enough to be staying at the moment. Bliss!

2. Visit the Po Nagar Towers

If you’re not going to make it to the Cham Dynasty ruins of My Son near Hoi An, the Po Nagar Towers are a great alternative. Dating back to the 7th-12th centuries, the towers are located right in the town and are in excellent condition for their age.

There aren’t nearly as many buildings as you’ll find at My Son, but they do give an excellent insight into an ancient culture.

3. See a floating fishing village

Floating villages are not just found in Halong Bay and the Mekong Delta - out in Nha Trang Bay you can take a trip to see how local fishing families live out on the water, farming oysters and serving boatloads of customers who come to buy their wares.

4. Go snorkelling

Nha Trang is beautiful above the waves and below, so head out with your snorkelling gear - or arrange a day of scuba diving - to enjoy the amazingly diverse coral scenery out in the bay.

5. Take a sunset cruise on the Quang Truong River

If you feel like treating yourself and seeing life in Nha Trang from a different perspective, take to the water for a relaxing sunset river cruise. You’ll pass brightly coloured houseboats, busy shipyards, a colonial railway bridge and plenty of lush scenery - all whilst enjoying wine, spring rolls, and plenty of fresh fruit.
