    hrs Estimate Duration

Enjoy a scenic drive to Nha Trang, a lovely, serene little town spread out along the length of a beautiful sandy beach, with a backdrop of hills and rocky outcrops. Stop at Long Son Pagoda, founded in the late-19th century, and rebuilt several times since. For those up to the challenge, you’ll have an opportunity to climb the 152 stone steps leading to the giant white Buddha seated on a lotus blossom. Walk across the bridge to photograph the abundance of fishing boats moored in the shallow Nha Trang Harbor. These boats are brightly-painted in blue and red, and a very colorful sight indeed. From the harbor, you will continue on to see the PoNagar Cham Towers. The Towers are evidence of the ancient Cham civilization built between the 8th and 12th centuries on a site used for Hindu worship.

In the center of Nha Trang you’ll visit the Dam market where you’ll find local produce, fruit, vegetables and seafood. After browsing through the market you can shop for souvenirs, then relax and enjoy a refreshing coconut drink at one of Nha Trang's beautiful beachfront cafes. Your tour concludes with a stop at an embroidery workshop. Here, you’ll admire the skill and creativity of hundreds of Vietnamese artists crafting their embroidered works of art.
