Located in the Khanh Hoa Province of Vietnam, Nha Trang is a coastal town with 10kms of beach and an average daily temperature of 26oC. With a population of around 300,000, Nha Trang retains a small town ambience and its inhabitants are genuinely friendly and welcoming of the increasing numbers of tourists arriving there for holidays and short trips.
Nha Trang city has a metropolitan area of 251 km² and population of about 500,000. It borders Ninh Hòa town in the north, Cam Ranh city in the south, Diên Khánh town in the west and the East Sea to the east. The city is on the beautiful Nha Trang Bay, which was chosen by Travel + Leisure Magazine in two succeeding years as one of 29 most beautiful bays in the world. Nha Trang is surrounded on all three sides by mountains and a large island and four smaller ones on the fourth side (in the ocean directly in front of the city's main area), blocking major storms from potentially damaging the city.
Nha Trang has a tropical savanna climate with a lengthy dry season from January to August and a shorter wet season from September to December.
Nha Trang is part of the Khanh Hoa province which was originally part of the kingdom of Champa from the 7th century up until the 19th century. Prior to that, a kingdom known as Lin-yi presided over the area with its origins believed to have begun around 192 AD.
Early Cham history is characterised by conflicts between the rival tribes of the Dua and the Cau. The conflicts were eventually settled and interbreeding between the two commenced. The origins of the Cham are a combination of Austro-Asian and Malayo-Polynesia. They still exist to this day, but their numbers have diminished greatly and are now estimated at about 77,000 making them a distinct minority group. Cultural characteristics of the Cham have remained constant with the same spoken language, written language, religious beliefs and ethnic rites as from the early days of their existence.
The decline of the Cham began around the 15th century with their first defeat at the hands of the Vietnamese people occurring in 1446. The next four centuries saw a number of battles between the two peoples for control of the area with the end of the 18th century seeing a major revolt launched against the Cham. They stood their ground and the revolt was defeated. The days of Cham control were numbered however and officially came to an end in 1832, with the annexation of the area by the Emperor Minh M?ng. In the 20th century, Nha Trang was in the spotlight as the site of a US Air Base during the Vietnam War.
Today it is a popular holiday destination and is developing every year. It is popular with Asian and European holiday makers and has become known for its stunning beaches and laid back atmosphere.
Nha Trang is one of the most important tourist hubs of Vietnam, thanks to its beautiful beaches with fine and clean sand and the clear ocean water with mild temperatures all year round. There are several resorts — such as Vinpearl, Diamond Bay and Ana Mandara — and amusement and water parks, in the city and on islands off the coast. The possibly most beautiful street of Nha Trang is Tran Phu Street along the seaside, sometimes referred to as the Pacific Coast Highway of Vietnam.
Lying off Nha Trang is the Hon Tre Island (Bamboo Island), with a major resort operated by the Vinpearl Group. The Vinpearl Cable Car, a gondola lift system, links the mainland to the five-star resort and theme park on Hon Tre Island.
Nha Trang is a stopover for annual yacht races starting in Hong Kong. In recent years, the city has welcomed many five-star sea cruises. In addition to sailboat racing, Nha Trang provides a rich variety of tourist activities for visitors. Island hopping, scuba diving, water sports and other sporting activities can be enjoyed. The Nha Trang Tourist Information Center (a non-governmental organisation), located near the Cho Dam Market has been set up to provide information for visitors.
The local cuisine is most famous for fresh seafood and barbecued pork rolled in rice paper. The area's bird's nest soup is deemed one of the best in Vietnam. Bird's nests are collected in the wild, on bird farms on the islands off the coast and even in some houses in the inner city. The farmed bird in question belongs to the swiftlet group, popularly referred to as "Aerodramus fuciphagus germani".
Long S?n Pagoda is prominent for its statue of Gautama Buddha.
