Nha Trang

Cruise ships to Nha Trang dock at the commercial Cau Da Port Pier. This is close to the Oceanographic Museum and it also includes some shops. The city Nha Trang is seven miles from the pier, and to reach the city, you can either use the free shuttle, or a taxi or trishaw. Smaller cruise ships will be able to dock at the terminal, but large cruise ships tend to dock further out, and passengers are ferried into the port by tender boat. Nha Trang itself is a busy resort city with popular restaurants and beaches. There are lots of activities on offer, including water parks, amusement parks, bike trails, diving, snorkelling, fishing, and much more.

Why visit Nha Trang ?

Nha Trang location iamge - CruiseDirection

Nha Trang is a high-energy, busy resort with a fantastic setting

Nha Trang has a magnificent golden sandy beach that stretches for six kilometres

Cruises to Nha Trang are offered by most of the big names in cruises, including Cunard, Emperor, and P&O. You will also find smaller companies that offer tailor-made cruises to Nha Trang. Cruising to Nha Trang is often included in long round-the-world type cruises which also call at other stops in Australia and Asia. However, you can also find shorter cruises that focus on Vietnam and other nearby countries such as Malaysia. Typically, passengers for these cruises will need to fly to somewhere such as Singapore to embark. Many of these cruises offer excursions too, so if you do not have much time, this could be a good option for seeing some of the highlights of Nha Trang.  

Its sweeping crescent of a beach is encircled by hills, and the turquoise waters are dotted with tropical islands. The shoreline has been upgraded in recent years, and is now home to quiet parks and sculpture gardens. Venture into the streets inland and you will find quirky boutiques and cosmopolitan restaurants. For those who want it, there is a very active nightlife, but you can also find quiet beachfront bars.  

Some sections are roped off for swimmers, and the turquoise water is very inviting. If you head south past the Sailing Club and the Louisiane Brewhouse, the beach becomes quieter. It is best to visit the beach before 1pm, as after that breezes can whip up the sand.  

Po Nagar Cham Towers was built between the 7th and 12th centuries. The four Cham Towers are still used today for worship by Cham, Vietnamese, and Chinese Buddhists. The complex originally had seven or eight towers, but only four are still standing. The most magnificent of the towers is the North Tower, which stands 28 metres high. The tower was built in AD 817 and has a terraced pyramidal roof, vestibule, sandstone doorposts with inscriptions, a statue of the goddess Uma made from black stone, and a vaulted interior. All of the temples face towards the east.  

If you are fairly active, climb the steep steps to Long Son Pagoda. The pagoda dates from the late 19th century. The roofs and entrance are decorated with dragons made from ceramic and glass tiles. The main sanctuary is a hall which has been decorated with traditional motifs. Behind the pagoda is the huge white Buddha. The platform around the Buddha affords some magnificent views of Nha Trang.
