Vinpearl Land

If there’s one thing Nha Trang City is known for, it’s Vinpearl Land—Vietnam’s answer to Disneyland. This amusement park gives the world-famous theme park franchise a run for its money as it features wild waterpark slides, massive aquariums, and scenic cable car rides, along with quintessential theme park attractions. With so many activities for every age, it’s a great option for families on vacation.

Thap Ba Hot Springs

Na Thrang is also the place to go for some relaxing and therapeutic mud bath sessions. There are a number of these spas in the city, and one of them is Thap Ba Hot Springs, which first opened in 1999.

For less than $10, you’ll be treated to a 15-minute communal mud bath, a thorough rinsing with their hydrotherapy wall, a mineral water bath, and unlimited swimming sessions in their pool. You can spend an entire day at the resort if you wish, but do come early to avoid the afternoon crowds.

Louisiane Brewhouse

With Vietnam’s beer-drinking culture, craft breweries have become trendy in large cities. In Nha Trang, Louisiane Brewhouse is probably the best home-brewed beer to go with the city’s delicious and diverse cuisine. For around $6, you can order their Louisiane Beer Tasting Tray so you can sample their different beer flavors before ordering a pint.

Po Nagar Cham Temple

Built in the 8th century by the Cham people, Po Nagar is a magnificent vestige of Vietnam’s early settlers. The Chams were an ethnic group of Austronesians who settled in areas that now make up the countries of Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

The actual temple was built in 784 AD and serves to honour the goddess Yang Ino Po Nagar. She was worshipped by the Dua (Liu) clan, who were the Southern rulers of a Cham Kingdom. The temple has 3 levels with steep steps and exteriors adorned with intricate motifs and carvings of deities.

For the best photo opportunities, it’s recommended that you visit the temple at sunset, when the golden light of the sun reflects beautifully on the ancient temple bricks.

Long Son Pagoda

The majority of the Vietnamese practice Buddhism and the country feature some of the most awe-inspiring pagodas and temples dedicated to Buddha. One of these is the Long Son Pagoda.

At its centre is an imposing 24-meter white Buddha with 152 steps leading up to it. Guests will surely appreciate the calm and serene surroundings, as well as the spectacular view afforded by the pagoda’s high vantage point.

Nha Trang Beach

Featuring 6 kilometres of white beach and turquoise blue waters, Nha Trang Beach is ridiculously idyllic. You can lazily beach bum the day away or do some snorkeling, windsurfing, parasailing, and other water activities. What’s more, restaurants, hotels, and other amenities are easily accessible from the beach, making it a true vacation destination for people who just want to hangout and not do a thing.
