Seven kilometres of sandy beach
If a beach resort holiday is up your street then book a trip to Nha Trang in Vietnam from The Co-operative Travel and find out what makes Vietnamese holidaymakers keep coming back.
Witth it's seven kilometres of sandy beach, considered to be one of the best in the country, it's no surprise that's where you'll find the pulse of Nha Trang. The provincial capital of Khanh Hoa in southern central Vietnam, Nha Trang is popular with foreign and domestic tourists alike
Most visitors will be happy to spend time working on their tan on the beach, but Nha Trang's location means there are opportunities to try a variety of water sports such as kayaking, jet skiing and windsurfing. The sweeping bay is also scattered with islands making the crystal clear waters ideal for exploration, snorkelling and diving trips. Boat tours can be organised through most hotels allowing you to escape the hubbub of the main beach in search of your own stretch of white sand.
Back on land there is also plenty to keep you occupied. For those feeling energetic, plan a trip to see the 14 ft high white Buddha which is visible from almost all of Nha Trang. The statue is reached by climbing 152 steps, so be prepared to put in some effort. Two kilometres north of the city are the Po Nagar Cham towers built between the 7th and 12th centuries which offer magnificent views across the city.
