nha trang city

Nha Trang city lies on the coast of the East Sea and its pristine municipal white beach of fine silica sand forms a crescent around the sparkling blue water of the bay. And thus Nha Trang beach is considered being of the finest of Vietnam.

Off shore are a score of attractive islets which contain craggy caves and caverns and provide home to the swallow, an insectivore that flies hundreds of kilometres daily searching for food to create its saliva-made nests that go into the famous delicious swallow-nest soup.

 With such warm and clear water the year round and unspoiled environment, Nha Trang Bay is also an ideal site for scuba diving.

The 7-km white-sand beach of Nha Trang is often called Vietnam's Mediterranean. It is sunny all year round, with an average temperature of 23oC thanks to northern winds. Annual rainfall is less than anywhere else in the country and the area is not threatened by serious storms as it is protected by the Truong Son Mountains and Ca Pass.

Nha Trang reaps the benefits from topographical advantages of sea, islands, mountains and deltas. An endless range of mountains is located west of the city. This city has many specialities. Every year, bird's nest soup, or Yen nest soup, is cooked. The magnificent coral seabed in Nha Trang also makes it ideal for scuba-diving and snorkeling.

Within the city are the historical sites such as the thousand-year old Cham Po Nagar Temple, Long Son Pagoda with a huge white Buddha statue, the Pasteur Institute within which is famous Dr. Yersin's Museum. Nha Trang is one of the major cultural centres of the whole country.
