Nha Trang or Hoi An

We were in Hoi An last year for 6 days and absolutely loved it wanting to return, but we only have time for either Hoi An or Nha Trang we have 7 nights 6 days .

Should we go to Nha Trang for 3/4 days or back to Hoi An for 4/5 days adding the other day to on of our other stops

Please help trying to book flights ASAP

Hi Brats, I have a similar dilemma. Would appreciate any info. I am trying to decide what to do between Hanoi and HCMC. Love Hoi An when I visited there about 4 years ago.

I do not see a problem with dividing 7 days between the two.

The 'what if' is going to haunt you forever, isn't it? :-)

We recently visited Hoi An, Nha Trang and HCMC. They are all totally different. So it's up to you what you are looking for. Hoi An has the old town and the nice (flat) countryside. Nha Trang has beach, boulevard and some nightlife but also a intersting backyard. The countryside around Nha Trang is totally differtent from Hoi An (a lot more hills). HCMC is a big, big city. We were not impressed and happy to leave but some others like it. When you have been in Hoi An before I would go for Nha Trang. When you have some days left I wouldn't miss Dalat also (better than the rest).

Hoi An has a lot more history, culture, class and style. Nha Trang basically just has a few sleazy nightclubs and a dirty beach. Maybe you could branch out from Hoi An to visit Hue , which is a popular destination.

Nha Trang is basically a beach resort though I have to disagree with 'cathfree' - we spent 10 days there earlier this month and we found the beach to be immaculate and didn't see any nightclubs, sleazy or otherwise.

What is the nightlife like in Hoi An compared to other destinations in Vietnam?
