I wanted to squeeze in some beach time while I was in Vietnam, so a little stop in Nha Trang offered a nice seaside break.
While this destination may pale in comparison to some of the lesser known islands in Southern Thailand, I thought it was a good enough spot – the waters were warm, the sand was clean, and because the beach is so spread out, sometimes I had the whole place to myself.
I will say that the town of Nha Trang doesn’t offer much in terms of culture. There are a few side trips you can take – there’s the local fishing village, the Long Son Pagoda which is home to a massive reclining Buddha,
and the Po Nagar Cham Towers which were built by the Cham civilization –however, this is predominantly a beach town.
