Nha Trang

Nha Trang, Vietnam

With a population of over 400,000, Nha Trang is a beautiful coastal city. "Nha Trang has several hot springs, good beaches, best seafood, lovely mountain streams in the foothill outside town, an excellent selection of English reference books in the province library, microbreweries, three big supermarkets, sea breezes during the day and mountain breezes at night. All in all, Nha Trang has clean air and a pleasant climate," described one expat. "Nha Trang is more like a quiet coastal city, less chaotic traffic, scenic scenery, smaller population and thus more breathing space and less nighttime activities," added another expat in Vietnam.
