Since 2016 after my family and I paid a visit to Vietnam Ho Chi Minh City, the good impression on that place has always made me want to visit that place again. I once said: Vietnam, I will be back soon!
Surprisingly on September 2017, I was lucky enough to travel on Air Asia inaugural direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Nha Trang, Vietnam!

Get to know About Nha Trang:
Nha Trang City (Vietnamese: Thành phố Nha Trang/ Bu Nha Trang City), is the Southern Coastal City of Vietnam, Khanh Hoa Province. Nha Trang City is just along the sea. The tourist facilities are so complete and it is one of the most important tourist centers in Vietnam.
Nha Trang Bay is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The nearby islands have clean rustic beaches, crystal clear waters and excellent diving environments which attracts diving enthusiasts from all over the world. From Junior High Diving License, Professional Diving Training, Night Diving, Cave Diving to Water Skiing Parachuting, regardless whether it is on sea or under the sea, there are a lot of activities for you to choose!
In comparison with other tourist islands in Southeast Asia, Nha Trang which is still under development is more affordable for tourists.
It is currently being touted as one of the most popular international tourist destination, and also attracts a large number of Southeast Asian Backpack Tourists to this place!
Jinlan International Airport is the City’s New Civilian Airport. It is very convenient to take a bus or taxi in the city (bargainable). The boat service to the island is usually hosted by the resort or the host of maritime activities. It is best to make sure that they do provide shuttle service before ordering the package online.
Climate and Tourism Season:
Throughout the year, the weather is mild and has a perennial temperature of 25℃-30℃
The tourist season is from January to May, in addition to foreign tourists, it is also the time where Vietnamese go for a holiday, so the hotel reservation must be done earlier. The best time to travel is October to May. Try to avoid rainy season which is from November, December.
Full of sandy beaches, islands, theme parks and other water-related activities, cool breathable attire, swimsuit + slippers + hat + sunglasses are absolutely needed. As for the temple, long-sleeved monk clothing will be provided, no worries.
The ingredients and taste of the local main dishes and snacks are close to the taste in Malaysia and Thailand, but maybe not as spicy. It is more inclined towards the original taste. As a result of the long term French Colonialism, the food is also heavily affected. You are able to enjoy the authentic French Cuisine or improvised fusion of French and Vietnamese Cuisine (fusion Cuisine).
You shall also not miss the local fresh seafood as Nha Trang is surrounded by the sea!
Currency：Transaction in Dong Or USD。Exchange rate around: VND 20000 | SGD1.20| RM3.70. Better prepare some cash pay to Street Hawker or shopping in Market.
Why Must Visit Nha Trang?
Comparing with other places in Vietnam, this place is very unique. The blue Sky, blue sea and all the streets and alley in Nha Trang induce a very special holiday experience. You can swim in the sea full of coral reefs and marine life and feel the joy and fun brought by it, you can wander between the magnificent scenery of the clan and Pagoda Church, you can relax in mud which is rich in mineral, you can also eat your seafood by the beach, enjoy the sunset, sunbathing, star-gazing or even do nothing.

Christ the King Cathedral, the appearance of the church is quite atmospheric, it is a typical Gothic architecture. Apart from the Bible story crafted on the skylight, the ocher stone walls are very retro, giving it a fresh vibe.

One must go for the local well-known mud bath repairing SPA when visiting Nha Trang! Mud bath, is also known as hot mineral mud bath. By bathing yourself in the mud’s inherent temperature or its temperature after heating, the heat will transfer the chemical composition, microbial and other to the skin, to improve your immunity to prevent disease. Frankly, we just soaked for a while and our skin has become so much smoother!
We visited the 100 Egg Theme Park. The facilities here are well-equipped, from mud bathing, swimming, SPA to dining. In fact, 100 Egg Theme Park is made up of the entire hill, playing whole day is not a problem.
Note: Please bring your own towels, the rental price is about 10,000VND. Remember to wear dark-colored swimsuit, as after mud bathing, it is difficult to clean the light-colored swimsuit to its original color.

Having breakfast with a breathtaking views of island sea and beautiful swimming pool… Now you should understand why I do not want to go home! This life is so beautiful!
I thought 4 days 3 nights trip in Nha Trang would be more than adequate, but having stayed here, apart from all the tourists attraction, this is leisure paradise for people who love to spend their life at the beach. To people who know how to enjoy their life would definitely understand what I mean. Especially the simple yet magnificent beach, I don’t think I’ve spent enough of my time here!
Normally staying in a beautiful beach villa resort require us to budget ourselves very carefully so not to overspend. If you are planning to bring your beloved one for a special event such marriage proposal or honeymoon, you may consider Nha Trang! You can enjoy a luxury trip in Nha Trang but with an affordable cost!
If it is a family trip, spending and choices will be different. The hotel we stayed has a location advantage, it has an incredible sea view and is located at the center of the city. So it is very close to many tourist attractions as well as street snacks! You can refer to the location of the hotel we stayed in and find yourself a hotel nearby that suits your budget more!
If it is a family trip, it is recommended to go for Vinpearl Amusement Park. Nha Trang Vinpearl Amusement Park has the Southeast Asia’s largest swimming pool, a private beach which is up to 700 meters long, the world’s longest cross-sea cable car. Entrance ticket is inclusive a roundtrip cable car fees, you may take the world’s longest cable car (Vinpearl Cable Car) to Hòn Tre, and enjoy the deep blue Nha Trang sea from cable car.
The theme park also consists of a large amusement park for outdoor and indoor video games, a 4D cinema and a small aquarium and a premium SPA club. All kinds of electronic games can be found in the indoor and no token is needed. You can play as you please!

This trip to Nha Trang has broaden my outlook on the development of Vietnam tourism. I’m confident that it will quietly become a strong competitor to other popular countries and beach resorts, the reason behind is the economical tourism consumption and travel environment which is relatively simple and leisure. No wonder it is crowned as “economical” Maldives, “low-profile” version of Bali, Nha Trang version of Taiwan’s Kenting with their well-equipped water activities.
Nha Trang currently is actively targeting the market in China, Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia, coupled with the opening of AirAsia flight from countries to Kuala Lumper and fly-thru direct flight service, I believe the next wave of tourists will be tourists from Malaysia and Singapore!
Yes, I’m talking about you! Quickly plan and arrange your trip after you have done reading the introduction, come to the hot spot with delicious food, fun, enjoyable, popular – Vietnam Nha Trang,
With that, I will also plan for my next Nha Trang trip again! Because I have fallen in love with Nha Trang!
Good news is, you can now fly to Nha Trang with AirAsia celebratory fares from as low as RM99* one-way. For latest AirAsia news, activities and promotions, please follow AirAsia on Twitter and Facebook.
