Vietnam has over 2000 miles of coastline on the Golf of Tonkin and the South China Sea, giving it plenty of beaches and fishing towns to visit.
Nha Trang is a coastal city on the south end of Vietnam. The city is known for its clean and clear water and sandy beaches, perfect for scuba diving.
The main street in Nha Trang has been called the ‘Pacific Coast Highway’ of Vietnam.
A fishing village and beach only a few hours from the busy city of Saigon is the perfect weekend getaway for locals. Moving back slightly from the coastline gives perfect view of the unique red sand dunes.
