Extremely dirty with all manners of effluent washing up including babies nappies. Assume the growth of this city has outstripped its ability to effectively treat waste sewage resulting in it washing up on the beach. Lovely water (26c) but stick to the hotel pool if...More

Very small hike to reach the Big Buddha statue on the hill. Very peaceful climb, no disturbance by any seller or maybe it's due to low peak season. Very beautiful view from the top of the hill. View of the Nha Trang city looks amazing.

Pros:: nice view Cons: 1.some places are off limits under renovation. 2. Beware of people offering joss sticks for praying and demanding exorbitant fees. It is better you buy joss sticks if you are going in large groups. 3. Need to do climbing to view...More

Climbing about 150 steps, we were met with a giant sitting Buddha. From there, we caught a sweeping view of Nha Trang city. One hour should be sufficient to cover this attraction.

This is a lovely location with many historical artefacts. The highlight being the statue of Bhudda, however be prepared to climb many steps if you wish to reach him. Dress appropriately if you wish to gain access to the inner temple.

YES but the crowds are already here and the trains and planes are Full ! If you have not already made your travel arrangements then you are not coming to Nha Trang and your question becomes superfluous !
