48 hours in Nha Trang

Coming to the coastal city of Nha Trang in the fall, you won't have to jostle among the crowds while having the opportunity to experience different things.

Nha Trang in the fall is no longer a tourist peak, but it still brings new things, especially if you are someone who likes to mingle with nature, and likes "healing" travel experiences that are the current trend. . In addition, there are also other options for people who do not like to exercise. The schedule was consulted from a tour guide in Khanh Hoa and a group of friends of Mr. Dong Phong, tourists from Ho Chi Minh City, on a trip in mid-September.

Day 1

Morning and noon

The morning in Nha Trang begins with a gentle sea swim. The sea water this season is quite warm so swimming is very pleasant. After swimming, choose to have breakfast with banh can - a popular dish here.

“We ordered a mixed plate of all kinds of toppings, eaten with shredded sour mango and sweet and sour fish sauce with a ball of shumai. A combination plate costs 80.000-90.000 VND with 8 pieces of shrimp, squid, beef, eggs, and mussels," Phong said. Some suggested addresses: banh can at 51 To Hien Thanh, banh can at Ut Nam on Pham Hong Thai street, banh can at Co Tu on Thap Ba street.

Besides banh can, you can also choose other dishes for breakfast such as fish vermicelli, jellyfish vermicelli, banh canh, banh wet, banh hoi. Gia Lai beef noodle soup or dry pho are also loved by many people. Suggested addresses: Hung Huynh dry pho, Ba Thua noodle soup, Hanh Nhien fish vermicelli, Doc Let jellyfish vermicelli.

After breakfast, relax and continue your Nha Trang autumn journey with a forest trip. The forest is located in Ninh Hoa town, about 40 km from the city center. You can go by car or motorbike because the distance is not too far and it is easy to move. Park the car at the edge of the forest, remember to bring a hat and drinking water to start the journey.

The road to the forest is quite easy to follow, with paths and no steep climbing so most people can participate. The purpose of the trip is not to conquer but simply to get close to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Walk slowly and feel the green of the leaves, breathe in the fresh air that the forest brings. You can observe the diversity of life in the forest, from ants crawling on the ground, nesting in trees, grasshoppers jumping under the grass, dragonflies flying quickly, birds flying in the sky. The sounds of the forest are the chirping of birds, rustling leaves, and gurgling streams.

Walk about 30 minutes in the forest and you will reach a small stream, convenient for stopping to rest. You can wade or bathe in the stream. Next to the stream is a fairly flat rocky beach where you can take a break for lunch. There are many trees here and the air is cool. After eating and drinking, remember to collect trash, do not leave anything harmful to the environment. Rest and return to the city in the afternoon.


Back in the city, one of the things not to be missed is a relaxing mud bath. "Mud bathing in Nha Trang is so famous and the most popular address is right near Thap Ba area in the center," Mr. Phong said.

There are many types of services for you to choose from including mud baths, hot mineral pools, jacuzzis, and herbal leaf baths. After a day of trekking, relaxing in a mud bath is a must-try experience. Service prices range from 120.000 to 1.000.000 VND per person depending on the service package. Large groups of people get more preferential prices.

In the evening in the coastal city, you must definitely enjoy seafood. Whether it's a high-end restaurant or a popular eatery, the seafood is very fresh, so you can choose a suitable spot. Popular dishes are grouper, pompano, lobster, scallops, crabs, crabs, and hand snails.

Thap Ba area, Cu Lao Trung street, Tran Phu street concentrates many good quality eateries and restaurants such as Long Vu snail - seafood restaurant (Thap Ba), Bo Ke seafood (Cu Lao Trung), Thanh seafood Suong (Tran Phu), Luong Son Cang restaurant (Hung Vuong), Hon Ro restaurant (Nguyen Van Linh). “During this time, fish prices in Nha Trang are quite reasonable because it is not the peak tourist season. Fresh and delicious food, attentive service. Each person eats about 200.000 VND to 400.000 VND to be full," Mr. Phong said.

In the evening, walk around and take photos at that theater. If you come during the time of the art program, buy tickets to enjoy and visit inside the theater with this unique fish-catching design.

Overnight at a hotel along Tran Phu street, close to the beach. This season the hotel has quite a few rooms. High-end hotels cost around 1 million VND per night, with sea views.

Day 2

Morning and noon

Waking up at 5am to catch the sunrise at sea is an exciting start to the second day in Nha Trang. After a recommended breakfast of fish noodle soup at one of the famous restaurants, Nguyen Loan on Ngo Gia Tu street, prepare for a special experience of journey to a coastal rocky beach, at the foot of Cu Hin pass, 15 km from the center. This rocky beach is known only to local people and is very deserted.

Before departing, stop by the market to buy items for an outdoor barbecue with oysters, shrimp, squid, meat and vegetables. The items to bring are simple, just a grill, a lighter, a few small pieces of charcoal and a few pine sticks, no dishes, no spoons and forks.

The first thing when arriving is to look for dry firewood. Need small branches to start the fire and larger logs to maintain the stove throughout the meal. Then, use a stone to support the stove and place the grill securely. Stack firewood, light a fire, blow and fan for a while and the stove is ready for grilling. Because the ingredients are fresh, shrimp, squid and beef just need to be grilled, add corn and sweet potatoes for a delicious and filling meal. “My friend uses dried almond leaves and banana peels to store food. Spices are put into oyster shells. A purely natural, rustic and beautiful barbecue party," Mr. Phong said.

While waiting for the food to cook, you can go swimming. The sea is very clear, almost no waves. At the bottom there are many wild algae and small fish. The best feeling is to finish swimming, go up to eat a little and then dive back down.

If you are not a fan of wild experiences, stay in the city to visit famous places such as Ponagar tower, oceanographic institute, stone church. These are close together in the city so it only takes about 1-2 hours to go.

In the remaining time, there are many options such as: Go to VinWonder amusement park on Hon Tre island to swim. Service price per person ranges from 800.000 VND to 1 million VND for half a day, including a lunch; Buy a tour to experience 3-5 islands in Nha Trang Bay (Hon Mun island, Hon Tam island, Robinson island, Orchid island, Monkey island). The canoe ticket from Nha Trang tourist wharf to these islands is 200.000 VND per person. If you buy a one-day package tour, the price starts from 750.000 VND per person; Climbing Co Tien Mountain or Hoang Nguu Son to see panoramic views of Nha Trang city is also an option.

Afternoon and evening

Now is the time for coffee. One suggestion is a restaurant with spacious outdoor space, lots of trees and no noise in an alley on Tue Tinh street called Yen Garden Bistro. In addition to the green space like a garden, the restaurant also has a koi pond and an area displaying wooden water puppet statues, ceramics, and fish - catching fish imbued with traditional culture.

On this occasion, the restaurant is decorated with a Mid-Autumn theme. It's not just a few lanterns or unicorn heads, each corner has its own theme. The shop owner is a designer so he takes meticulous care of the shop. The staff said that each season and each festival, the restaurant will change its decoration accordingly. You can sit, sip a glass of water and confide in friends or you can also choose a private corner to work or read. The shop's drinks range from coffee and tea to juices, smoothies, and milk tea with prices ranging from 30.000 to 70.000 VND.

To end a gentle day, enjoy banh beo, nam, loc at the "small but mighty" banh beo shop Be Tu on Huynh Thuc Khang street. A tray of banh beo containing 10 cups costs 24.000 VND. You can eat more banh hoi, spring rolls, and spring rolls, all of which are easy to eat. The shop also serves soy drink, pennywort and yogurt. If you don't eat here, choose one of the alternative dining locations mentioned above.

Two days of new experiences in a "not new" city can be a suggestion for those who have been to Nha Trang many times. In two days, you can go to the forest, go to the sea, eat and drink delicious dishes to relax your body and soul, and regenerate energy.
