Islands in Nha Trang Bay

The islands of Hon Tre, Hon Mieu, Hon Mot, Hon Tam and Hon Mun are just a few kilometres from Cau Da Wharf. The water is clear and the marine life is diverse enough to ensure marine sports such as snorkeling and scuba diving. After a swim or a dive, visitors may go punting to explore fishing villages on the islands, tasting local seafood specialties, watching fishermen go about their daily jobs or simply enjoying completely unspoilt scenic beaches. See location of islets on the map of Nha Trang Islands.

Whale Island

Two hours by car and half an hour by boat from Nha Trang, Whale Island is rarely-known. If visitors want to find a place without traffic, without telephone and without computer, this is the right one. With 16 rooms constructed of bamboo, the Whale Island Resort offers a quiet stay on an unspoiled beach with transparent water, coral and coconut trees.

Long Son Pagoda

Built in 1889, Long Son Pagoda is the main and largest pagoda in Nha Trang. The entrance and the roofs are decorated with mosaic dragons made of glass and bits of ceramic tile. The main sanctuary is an attractive hall adorned with modern interpretations of traditional motifs. At the top of the hill behind the pagoda is a huge white Buddha statue seated on a lotus blossom which is visible from all around.

Nha Trang Cathedral

Nha Trang Cathedral, built in French Gothic style and complete with medieval-looking stained glass windows, stands on a small hill overlooking the train station. It was constructed of simple cement blocks between 1928 and 1933. Three large bells were provided by the Bourdons Carillons Company in 1934, and a big clock was assembled on the tower in December 1935. Masses are held from Monday through Saturday at 5 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and on Sundays at 5 a.m., 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Oceanographic Institute

Founded in 1923, the Oceanographic Institute is housed in a grand French-colonial building in the Cau Da area. It has an aquarium, a specimen room and a library. The aquarium is home to a variety of colourful live specimens of local marine life. Besides, a large hall behind the main building contains 60,000 dead specimens, including stuffed sea birds and fish, corals and corporeal remains of other marine creatures preserved in glass jars.

Pasteur Institute

Nha Trang’s Pasteur Institute was founded in 1895 by Dr Alexandre Yersin (1863-1943). Dr Yersin’s library and office are now a museum located on the second floor; items on display include laboratory equipment and some of his personal effects. There is a picture of Dr Yersin above the door to the veranda. The model boat was given to him by local fishermen with whom he spent a great deal of his life. The entrance gate is located at 10 Tran Phu St.

Po Nagar Towers

Built between the 7th and 12th centuries, the Cham towers of Po Nagar were used for Hindu worship. Today, both Chinese and Vietnamese Buddhists come to Po Nagar to pray and make offerings according to their traditions. Only with loose bricks and with neither plaster on the walls nor mortar between the bricks - the towers have stood for many centuries. Standing on a granite hillock by the Cai River, the towers offer a fantastic view of Xom Bong Bridge and docks of trawlers and junks.

Thap Ba Hot Spring

Open in 2000, this 3-hectare open-air leisure complex offers a choice of soaks in hot mineral water and mud. The sodium silicate chloride mineral water and calcium silicate carbonate mineral mud are said to have curative properties for a number of diseases such as chronic rheumatism, gout and bone tuberculosis. Visitors will find themselves in perfectly green surroundings and a friendly ambience which will make them feel fresh and relaxed. The spring is located at Ngoc Son Hamlet, Ngoc Hiep Ward on the northern outskirts of Nha Trang. The complex is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at weekends and on public holidays.
