    Beautiful Nha Trang - Nha Trang Bay

    Post  travelvietss on Wed Apr 06, 2011 5:07 pm

    Nha Trang Bay’s well-known Vietnam Beach Vacation are so popular that it is easy to overlook other attractions that the town offers off its coast.
    We were able to make a few discoveries during our last trip there.
    From the Cau Da Wharf, a seven-minute boat ride took us to the Tri Nguyen Island. The Tri Nguyen Aquarium dazzles with a myriad of colorful creatures that awe children and adults alike.



    Then we walked for another 500 meters to reach the Bai Soi (Pebble Beach), one of the most stunning spots along Nha Trang Bay. As the name implies, it is covered with pebbles. Walking on them is like getting a natural foot massage.



    From Bai Soi, a 15-minute journey to the east on boat got us to Mot Isle where the beach stretched out lazily under the shade of coconut palms. Its fresh air and scenery has prompted some travel agencies to organize tours that include swimming, games and parties for groups who end up having a whale of a time.
    Also from Bai Soi, 7-10 minutes on a boat going south gets us to the Tam Isle.
    The island, which has been transformed into a four-star resort by the Hon Tam-Bien Nha Trang Joint Stock Company, boasts a white sandy beach with many towering Indian oaks, willows, tamarind and many other kinds of trees, each with its own distinct shape and beauty.
    Another Nha Trang Bay attraction that is well worth visiting is the Con Se Tre or Tre (Bamboo) Island, around four kilometers from downtown Nha Trang Town. After enjoying themselves in the clear blue waters, tourists can have fun grilling seafood on brick stoves at the Con Se Tre Tourist Park. The sight of these stoves glowing in the dark and the aroma of fish or other seafood being grilled is an experience that entices people to come back again and again.
    The furthest beach in Nha Trang Bay from the downtown area is Hon Noi (Noi Isle). Around 20 kilometers from the town, the island is blessed with clean, crystal blue waters and cliffs that have provided a rich source of swift’s nest. Somewhat fittingly, the Noi Isle is being developed by the Khanh Hoa Bird’s Nest Company.
    After swimming and visiting the birds’ nests, we relaxed, sitting and leaning against large rocks in the middle of the sea, enjoying the breeze and listening to the sounds of waves lapping against the rocks.
    Of course, one of the most well-known places in the bay is Vinpearl Land, whose white sand beaches and turquoise waters have been made even more famous by the hosting of beauty contests and other similar events. Among those looking for “modern” entertainment, the Vinpearl Water Park and Underwater World are popular options.
    The Tre (Bamboo) Island beach, around four kilometers from downtown Nha Trang, is another Nha Trang Bay attraction

    Beautiful Nha Trang - Nha Trang Bay

    Traces of human settlement in Nha Trang date back to the Cham Empire, though in times of Vietnamese rule, there wasn’t much more than small fishing villages. The French recognized that this beautiful bay, with its islands and white sand beaches, made for a perfect bathing spot, and began the transformation into a resort town. American soldiers agreed, and Nha Trang became a favorite vacation stop during the war.
    The monsoon season is from October to mid December. Sea winds can be heavy, and sometimes the weather can get pretty chilly. Summer, naturally, brings many vacation goers into town and hotel rooms get somewhat more difficult to find.
    There are several other beaches in the vicinity of Nha Trang. About 30 km north of Nha Trang, just when past the village of Ninh Hoa, a peninsula juts out into the South Chinese Sea, and on its northern coast rides its tinier brother, Hon Khoi. Several resorts are located on the eastern beach of Hon Khoi, where you find palm-trees, white sand and turquoise waters. To get there, follow the highway north past the turnoff to Dac Lac Province/Buon Ma Thuot. Then look out for a sign reading "Doc Let-Resort", close to a filling station. A taxi will take 2 persons for about 200,000 dong, while a Xe Om should not be more expensive than 100,000 dong. Or catch a through-bus plying highway Nr.1 and jump off at the turn off. There will always be some motorbike-drivers waiting to take you. Whatever place you choose to go, be sure to reserve a bungalow in advance.
