Nha Trang is the most popular beach town in Vietnam, with his pros (good infrastructure, competition drives prices down) and cons (too busy, not authentic). Now a day is catering more to package tourism and especially Russian people. The beaches, especially the island in front of the city, are still very nice.
Good place to visit or stay, Fantastic beaches, lots of thing to enjoy, such as snorkel, drving, mud bath,.... . the standard of living quite cheap.
Nha Trang is a coastal city and it's a popular destination for Vietnamese families as well as international travelers. Fun fact: Diamond Bay Resort was the site of Miss Universe 2008. I loved the drove from the airport in Cam Ranh -- it was so green! You'll also see a lot of construction on the roads too. The population of the city is expected to grow in the next few years since it's still under development.The city is a great spot to check for everyone. There are number of resorts and hotels available for all budgets and you have activities for the outdoors -- water sports, hanging out at the beach, nightlife lovers -- clubs and bars, and for those who love local culture -- food, shopping.
I went here by motorbike from North to South, i saw this lovely scene along the coast next by the wide road leading to city center of Nha Trang. The road is beautiful itself, plus the sightseeing of Ninh Van and Nha Trang bays which both along makes the trip a must-try.
