Kirsty S's City Tips

  • Like everywhere else in Vietnam, street food is plentiful, cheap, and invariably delicious. As always, go where the crowds are and you won't go too far wrong.
  • You’re bound to encounter beggars and those selling postcards and other items during your time in Nha Trang. A great way to help the poverty situation in Vietnam is to make a donation to a local charity on your departure.
  • Cyclo taxis are a cheap and easy way to get around Nha Trang. If using regular taxis, Mai Linh and Vinasun are reputable firms.

    Centrally located, the most obvious family friendly attraction in Nha Trang is the long stretch of beach of the same name. There are plenty of umbrellas, deck chairs, and opportunities for snorkeling and the like on the beach itself, along with a whole range of restaurants and beach clubs awaiting you and your family when all that fun and relaxation gets too much.

    Tips
    • Nha Trang Beach does tend to attract a lot of vendors selling food and other items. A polite yet firm “no” should do the trick if you begin to feel hassled.

    Situated on its very own island, Vinpearl is a huge theme park with enough rides and attractions to keep the whole family entertained. Even getting there is part of the fun — you and the kids can enjoy the spectacular views from the largest over the sea cable car in the world, which departs from the mainland to Vinpearl Island. On arrival, there are water slides galore, a gentle lazy river, plenty of food and drink options, plus an array of dry rides suitable for different age groups. This is a great family day out from start to finish.

    An educational attraction that the kids will love, the National Oceanographic Museum is home to an impressive and fascinating array of exhibits and marine life. It might be old and a little tired, but it will keep the kids entertained as they marvel at sharks, fish, coral, and even turtles.

    Don’t leave Nha Trang without a visit to the Cham Towers. Just a few kilometers north of the center of Nha Trang stand these ancient towers. When you've had enough of amusement parks and lazing on the beach, a trip to the Cham Towers makes for a peaceful, cultural, and visually pleasing experience.

    A day trip along the river is a fantastic way to discover Nha Trang, its people, and the local way of life. Travel through the Vietnamese countryside and visit the locals as they go about their daily work, making rice paper items, weaving mats, and tending to their rice paddies. Traveling by boat means this day tour stays at a relaxed pace and you and the family will see a whole range of attractions along the way. To top it all off, the food included in the tour is simply delicious!

    • Despite being a river tour, there’s a fair bit of walking involved at the various stops, so be sure to all wear comfortable shoes and to drink plenty of water.

    There’s no denying that the kids love animals, and they are sure to love seeing the pigs, the crocodiles, and other animals at the Yang Bay Eco Park. The spectacular waterfalls here are a huge draw, so if animals aren’t your thing, take advantage instead of the great mountainside scenery and amazing hot springs while you marvel at the mighty falls.

    Good for
    • Family
    • Nature Lover
    Tips
    • The Eco Park is located approximately an hour’s drive from the center of Nha Trang. It’s a good idea to go as part of a day tour to see some other sights along the way.

    Kirsty S Says:

    The Long Son Pagoda is one of those must-see attractions in Nha Trang, and it makes for a peaceful and pleasant visit away from the beach. The roof and entrance to the pagoda are decorated with mosaic dragons, while the main hall is adorned with a unique take on traditional motifs. Behind the pagoda is a large seated white Buddha, and from here there are great views of Nha Trang and its surrounding countryside.

    • Must See
    • Family
    • Art and Architecture Lover
    Tips
    • If you and the family want to visit the pagoda in relative peace, head there early in the morning; the first tour buses roll in at around 10:30am.
    • There’s a common scam at the pagoda where unofficial helpers attempt to show you around or sell you incense and postcards in return for a fee. It’s best to firmly refuse and put your donation in the donations boxes instead.

    On a family holiday, it can sometimes be difficult to sample the local cuisine as often as you’d like, particularly when traveling with young children, as frequent stops at street food stalls may not be possible. A safe, clean and delicious way to sample some authentic Vietnamese food while in Nha Trang is to head to Galangal. They have a street food menu and a standard menu, where you and the kids can watch your dishes being made at the stalls on the ground floor.

    Tips
    • Galangal is located at 1a Duong Biet Thu near the beach. If you have room for dessert, why not treat the kids to an ice-cream at Romy’s Italian Ice Cream and Coffee Bar nearby?
