About Nha Trang
Nha Trang is a popular destination with both Vietnamese and foreign (particularly Russian) holidaymakers. The principle attraction is the 6 km long city centre beach which is safe for swimming and the town’s many inexpensive bars, restaurants and hotels. Nha Trang is a tourist town, however, Nha Trang also has some places of interest that people touring the country will be interested in. Nha Trang’s most important historical site is Po Nagar temple, known as Thap Ba to locals. Po Nagar is a Hindu temple built by the Cham who were the dominant ethnic group in much of South East Asia until around the 15th Cenutry. Po Nagar dates back to the 9th Century. The tallest of the four main towers at Po Nagar temple has an inscription which says it was built in 817 AD. From Po Nagar temple you also get a great of the Cai River estuary and the Tran Phu bridge.
Also worth visiting in Nha Trang are Long Son Pagoda and Dam Market. Long Son Pagoda, which is near to the railway station, has a large hilltop statue of the Lord Buddha and some interesting smaller statues which you pass as you walk up the hill. From the top hill you get a panoramic view of Nha Trang City, and there is a really good vegetarian restaurant located near to the entrance to the temple which is one of the best places to eat in that part of the city. Dam Market is a Vietnamese market located on the other side of the railway station from Long Son Pagoda nearer to the beach. Dam Market was established in 1974 and is located within several iconic (but ugly) concrete buildings. A range of products including food, clothes and souvenirs type items are sold at Dam Market at prices which are negotiable.
