Nha Trang Travel
Nha Trang, the capitol of Khanh Hoa Province, has one of the nicest municipal beaches in all of Vietnam. Club Med hasn’t arrived yet there are still no Monte Carlo style casinos but the resort town has rapidly developed into a place for sun and fun. Nevertheless, this area has the potential to become another flashy resort like Thailand’s Pattaya Beach (dread the thought) Nha Trang is a place to come and party. If you are after something more tranquil, consider Mui Ne Beach to the south.
The clear turquoise waters around Nha Trang make for excellent, fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving. The only time you aren’t likely to enjoy these pursuits is in the off-season months of November and December, when the rains come. During heavy rains, water levels rise in the two rivers at either end or the 6km beach; the tides carry fresh water into the bay, which can turn the water a murky brown. Most or the year, however, the water is turquoise, like in the tourist brochures.
The service on the beach is incredible Massage, lunch, cold heel’, manicure, beauty treatments. Of late, lots or ‘massage’ signs have been popping up around town, a sure sign that more visitors are expected. Nha Trang’s dry season, unlike that of Ho Chi Minh City, runs from June to October. The wettest months are October and November, but rain usually falls only at night or in the morning.
The combined fishing fleet of Khanh Hoa Province and neighbouring Phu Yen Province numbers about 10,000 trawlers and junks; they are able to fish during the 250 days or calm seas per year. The area’s sea-food products include abalone, lobster, prawns, cuttlefish, mackerel, pomfret, scallops, shrimps, snapper and tuna. Exportable agricultural products from the area include cashew nuts, coconuts, coffee and sesame seeds. Salt production is also large, employing over 4000 people.
Weather patterns vary greatly from year to year, but in general the best season is from late January to late October. November typically brings the worst weather and December is not much better. The best beach weather is generally before 1 pm; the afternoon sea breezes can make things unpleasant until the wind dies back down around 8 pm. Although well within the tropical zone, Nha Trang has cool evenings. Boat trips are the real highlight of Nha Trang (see The Islands & Boat Trips in Around Nha Trang, later in this chapter).
