Nha Trang is a popular destination in the summer months, particularly February through to April when there is the least rainfall, and if you want to travel in one of the 1st Class or VIP Sleeper compartments then we recommend that you book well in advance. If you plan to travel in the rainy season, from middle of September to middle of December, then you are less likely to need to book a ticket in advance as few holiday makers visit Nha Trang at this time of year.

  • National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam: An aquarium open to the public featuring an interesting range of sea life including from sharks to sea horses and pretty much everything in between.

  • Ba Ho waterfalls: A series of waterfalls located around 20 km North of Nha Trang City.
  • Live Music: In the evenings a number of bars in the City have live music by foreign performers. The most popular, but not necessarily the best, venues are the Guava Bar and the Red Apple Club.
