Description of resorts:
Nha Trang, the most popular resort in South Vietnam, is an hour’s flight from Ho Chi Minh City. Snow-white beaches, deserted bays, many lost islands and coral reefs – all this is the coast of Nha Trang. The city itself is also known as a medical resort: there is a clinic for mud therapy and mineral water treatment. In general, Nha Trang is a family resort where it is good to come with children.
This beach resort is very popular among Europeans, Japanese, Australians and Americans due to the clear and calm sea, as well as the excellent diving opportunities near the UNESCO-protected Black Island.
