About Travel to Nha Trang
Nha Trang is Vietnam’s must visited beach side resort destination. Nha Trang is particularly popular with package holiday makers from Russia and other parts of Eastern Europe as well as with Vietnamese holiday makers. There is, however, another side to Nha Trang and that’s its cultural attractions which are in the Northern part of the city away from the areas where most holiday makers stay.
Tran Phu Beach
Tran Phu Beach is the most important tourist attraction in Nha Trang. The beach is 6 km long, and the city stretches along a significant portion of the length of the beach. There is walkway along the edge of the beach as well as a number of beach front bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Most visitors choose stay in the area by the busy central part of the beach where there is cluster of hotels, bars and restaurants catering to holiday makers. This part of Nha Trang gets lively in the evening with people going out to eat and drink late into the evening.
From Tran Phu Beach you can see Nha Trang’s other major attraction, Vinpearl Land, which is on an island in the bay. Vinpearl Land can be accessed from Nha Trang City Centre by either cable car or speed boat.

Pre-pandemic Vinpearl Land regularly received 10,000 or more visitors a day. It’s a major commercial operation and it has a strong appeal to families, particularly amongst domestic tourists.
Po Nagar Temple
In complete contrast to Nha Trang’s mass tourism focus, the city has one of Vietnam’s most important historical sites, Po Nagar Temple. Po Nagar Temple is tucked away in the North of the city away from the main tourist area and the journey to get there puts off many holidays from visiting.
Po Nagar Temple dates back to the 7th Century and is one of the best preserved examples of the architecture of the Cham Empire which ruled over large parts of South East Asia from the 6th to 15th Centuries. The Cham people are believed to have originated in area comprising Java, the Malay Peninsula, and Borneo. The theory is that they came to Vietnam by boat and proceeded to colonise parts of Southern Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
The Cham have their own very distinctive culture, and the time Po Nagar was established their beliefs encompassed Hinduism, local folk religions, along with an element of Buddhism. The main god worshipped at this temple, Lady Po Nagar, relates to a Cham folklore story about the creation of the world.
Other Attractions in Nha Trang
After Po Nagar temple, the two most interesting places to visit in the city are Long Son Pagoda and Dam Market.
Dam Market is a municipal market located in the North of the city.

The interesting feature of Dam Market is the older buildings dating back to 1974 which are brutal concrete structures strongly reminiscent of architecture of 1960s Soviet Russia.
Long Son Pagoda is a Buddhist temple located within easy walking distance of Nha Trang Railway Station. The most prominent feature of Long Pagoda is the large white statue of the Lord Buddha which sits on top of hill overlooking the city.
