It’s A Wonderful 5 Days 4 Nights Nha Trang Trip

You know, Nha Trang city has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world with a deep blue sea, white sand, warm sunshine, and wonderful weather for outdoor activities. Actually, besides the gorgeous beaches, the coastal city also has many interesting things such as great cuisine, the islands, local people, culture, and indoor activities for you to discover. Just in time my family and I had a trip to the city, let me share with you my 5 days 4 nights Nha Trang itinerary and experience here.

Day 1: Nha Trang, Here We Come!

We traveled to Nha Trang by the Phuong Trang bus, which took nearly 8 hours from Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). As we arrived in Nha Trang nearly in the evening, we spent most of the rest of the time in the hotel.

In fact, there are different ways of going from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang for you to choose from:

OK, Let Come Back to the Hotel We Stayed In

It was the SENIA Hotel Nha Trang, a 4-star one with many facilities. Its address’s on Cu Chi Street, about 10 minutes to come if you leave the train station. From the hotel, we could easily reach the market for dinner or take a walk on the beach in less than 5 minutes. We booked a superior room that is designed delicately with modern furniture. Located opposite the beach, with the balcony, it was ideal for us to see the sunrise every morning.

Furthermore, my favorite here was the outdoor pool. It was very clean and magnificent. The surrounding pool was paved with glass, making us feel like we were immersed in the sea. Moreover, the staff there was very friendly and ready to help. Also, breakfast was significantly delicious, yummy, and diversified.

Day 2: A City Tour Around Nha Trang

Actually, we didn’t even have so much time on 5 days 4 nights Nha Trang trip and there were still so many places to visit. Hence, on the second day, we planned to visit some of the city’s most prominent places such as Long Son Pagoda, Po Nagar Cham Towers, Thap Ba Hot Mineral Springs, and the Institute of Oceanography in Nha Trang.

First Destination – Long Son Pagoda

We came to Long Son Pagoda, one of the most sacred pagodas in Vietnam, in the early morning. It was very peaceful and serene. The pure, fresh atmosphere of the new day in the temple, made us feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. The temple had a lot of ancient architecture and giant Buddha statues, making this place much more mysterious and grave.

After That – Po Nagar Cham Towers

I’m imitating meditation on a rock at Po Nagar Towers, haha.

Being one of the famous historical and cultural relics, the Po Nagar Towers is a kind of tower complex with a unique architectural style of the Cham ethnic. It’s also a typical construction of architectural art and sculpture of the Cham that existed for over 10 centuries ago.

Thereafter Our Lunch – Thap Ba Hot Mineral Springs and Mud Bath

We went deep into the mountain behind the Po Nagar Temple, it’s one of the famous hot springs and mud baths in Nha Trang. It’s called Thap Ba Hot Mineral Springs and Mud Bath. You could see the wonderful mountain scenery with many hot mineral springs and pools. At the same time, you could also drop yourself into the hot mineral springs pool, soak in the mud bath, or herbs pools. It’s truly a considerable place to relax after tiring days.

Just a quick tip, in case you want to do the mud bath right in the center of Nha Trang, or even in a hotel, you can consider Galina Hotel & Spa at no. 5 Hung Vuong Street, Loc Tho Ward.

Finally – The Institute of Oceanography in Nha Trang

We went to the Institute of Oceanography in Nha Trang to discover and learn about marine creatures, their habitats, their living habits, and the maritime history here.

Day 3: Discover Vinpearl Land

My 5 days 4 nights Nha Trang journey wouldn’t be fulfilled without this destination in the schedule. We spent nearly the whole day in Vinpearl Land, the most gorgeous and special entertainment park in Nha Trang. We came there by cable car and returned by canoe. From there, we could see the whole coastal city of Nha Trang and many other beautiful scenes. It was a wonderful island with a dry park and a water park alongside a lot of thrilling games.

Besides that, the special thing there was the Vinpearl Safari, which takes care of and preserves a lot of wildlife. You can even get very close to them whereas the normal zoos cannot support that.

Day 4: Explore Islands around Nha Trang

The last thing and no better way to experience is riding a motorbike on the beautiful roads on the islands. Yes, we went to see many small islands and immersed ourselves in the wild nature, unspoiled beaches with beautiful coral reefs. We also took part in thrilling beach games, soaking up amazing cool water, and diving to see the corals.

Certainly, when arriving at Nha Trang city, it would be a big deficiency of experience without exploring the islands. Here, I have some suggested islands for you to discover:

Day 5: Enjoy the Culinary and Shopping in Nha Trang City

On the final day, we used most of our time to go shopping, buy souvenirs for friends, and relatives, and taste the cuisine of the land Nha Trang. In truth, you may even spend the whole week enjoying the entire Nha Trang food tour. But below are our recommendations for some special dishes we ate here:

Nem nướng Ninh Hoà.
Bò nướng Lạc Cảnh.
Seafood in Nha Trang.

Any Journey Will Come to An End

The next early morning, we tiredly came back to Ho Chi Minh City because we went around the city the whole night before. Definitely, it was a memorable trip with lots of interesting experiences. To us, our 5 days 4 nights in Nha Trang were not too long. However, if we had more time to experience and live like the locals there, I would love to try more delicious local foods, watch more beautiful scenes, and live slowly to enjoy the wonderful nature of the land.
