Hugging the coast for a few blocks is a fully fledged international resort, complete with high-rise hotels, souvenir shops, stylish restaurants and bars. It also offers some of the best dining, with a bounty from the sea and an array of international flavours. As the restaurants wind down, the nightlife is bustling and people play late in this city.

There are some more sedate activities on offer beyond the waters. Try an old-school spa treatment with a visit to a mud-bath centre and having fun, or explore centuries-old Cham towers still standing in the centre of town. Nha Trang has something for everyone.
