Nha Trang is a city on the beach. The beach runs 6km along the length of the town. Dotted out at sea are some 71 islands with clear water and sandy beaches.


Most of the hotels, restaurants and the commercial district start across the road from the beach and make their way back several blocks. With a population of just over the 300,000 mark, it’s not a big town and isn’t too much of a mission to walk around or ‘cyclo’ around. There is a smattering of good restaurants (great seafood!) clubs and bars around although it seems to be lacking a little for such a popular party town. The best hotel by a long shot is the Anamandara, nearer the edge of town and the only true beach resort in Nha Trang.
