Known for its beautiful white sand beaches, clear waters, Nha Trang attracts a diverse crowd of foreign and Vietnamese tourists with high class resorts and backpacker friendly hostels.
Nha Trang offers a number of excellent restaurants, some fun night spots and excellent snorkeling and diving.
Nha Trang has two distinct seasons, the wet “monsoon” season and the dry season.
Dry season is January to August with January to April the driest months, February averages 4 rainy days and just 16mm of rainfall.
January to March have average high temperatures of 27-29°C/81-84°F and lows of just over 20°C/68°F although they can sometimes drop to the low teens.
Average high temperatures from April to August are in the low 30°C/86°F although can head closer to 40°C/104°F at times. Rainfall increases but still only sees an average 9 rainy days in June and August.
Rainfall increases sharply in September as the month sees around 15 days and 159mm of rainfall. October and November are the wettest months with around 18 days of rainfall and averages of more than 300mm per month. December sees similar rainfall to September.
Average temperatures start to decrease throughout the wet season from average highs of just over 30°C/86°F in September to 27°C/81°F in December.
Humidity throughout the year ranges from around 77% to 83%.
Cyclones and significant flooding are possible during the wet season.
Vietnam Airlines are the only airline flying direct from the UK to Vietnam, with flights to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The closest airport to Nha Trang is Cam Ranh International Airport (around an hour from Nha Trang) which has connections from most Vietnamese Airports.
Many people will get to Nha Trang by train with Thai Nguyen sitting on the main North – South Railway. We have more information on the Reunification Express which runs on this line and connects Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang.
There are also a number of buses that connect Nha Trang with Ho Chi Ming City, Da Nang and Hoi An.
Nha Trang is people friendly and most places within the city can be walked easily, although the heat will put some off.
Bicycle- There are plenty of bike rental shops and many hotels also have bikes to rent or even loan.
Bus – A good option for getting around locally with a number of bus routes and many of the main tourist attractions covered.
Taxi – Most drivers will speak at least some English and are available throughout the city. Meters are in use.
Cyclo – Mostly found in tourist areas, these three wheeled cycles can be a fun way to get around town but be careful to agree a price in advance.
Xe Om (motorcycle taxi) – You will find them all around town. Make sure you agree a fare in advance and you must always wear a helmet.
