Discover the city highlights of this beach city as well as a chance to cruise on the turquoise waters of the South China Sea around the beautiful islands and learn to know about the fishing life of the local people. A stop at one of Vietnams’ most interesting local markets “Cho Dam” is also an impressive highlight.
Today’s full day tour of Nhatrang with a relaxing cruise on the turquoise waters of the South China Sea. Your craft is a simple (but safe and comfortable!) reconverted fishing boat. Off shore from Nha Trang lie numerous islands, some inhabited and many dotted with idyllic fishing villages. We pause at one of these villages and you are free to wander at will. The local people are very friendly and hospitable to visitors. Should you wish, there will be opportunity to swim and snorkel in secluded bays.
Return to Nha Trang town for included lunch serving local specialties. The afternoon enjoy the visit Long Son Pagoda, which was founded in the late 19th Century. The entrance and roofs are decorated with mosaic dragons made of glass and ceramic tile. From the pagoda, those more energetic will have the chance to climb the 152 stone steps leading to the giant white Buddha seated on a lotus blossom. There are superb views of the whole city from the platforms around the Buddha (14 metres high), which was built in 1963. Evidence of the ancient Cham civilisation of Vietnam can be seen in Nha Trang at the hill top Po Nagar Cham Towers. Built between the 7th and 12th Century and named in honour of the former Cham Princess who introduced her people to profitable weaving and wet rice cultivation techniques, it is still used as a centre for worship today. You will also visit Dam market in the centre of Nha Trang – one of Vietnams’ most interesting local markets. There’s a colourful selection of local produce. Fruit, vegetables and seafood are the most common but you will also see dried seahorses and lizards – popular specialities of Nha Trang! Walk across Ha Ra Bridge below to photograph the abundant fishing boats moored in the shallow Nha Trang harbour. Boats are brightly painted in blue and red – an engaging sight against a typically azure sky.
