When your Asia cruise takes you to the Vietnamese coastal city coined the “Riviera of the South China Seas,” Nha Trang shore excursions will show you how the city lives up to its reputation.
Beach and spa destinations are among the best things to do in Nha Trang from a cruise. If that’s your favorite way to spend a day ashore, escaping to Vinpearl Resort is a perfect excursion. Relax on Bai Dai, also known as Long Beach, the pristine, white-sand beach that fronts the resort. Bask in the sun or enjoy a refreshing swim in calm, clear sea waters. Lounge at the pool, have a drink at the pool bar, and lunch at one the resort’s several restaurants serving Vietnamese specialties or international cuisine.
At another beach and spa destination, indulge in an ancient wellness therapy that offers a signature Nha Trang shore excursions experience: take a soothing, soaking mud bath. The hot mineral mud bath, along with a natural massage under a mineral waterfall, is sure to relax and rejuvenate. Follow the spa baths with an equally indulgent tropical drink and splendid meal at the resort’s fine restaurant for the perfect day in port on a cruise to Nha Trang.
For a day of thrills and breathtaking bird’s-eye views of all of Nha Trang, shore excursions that start with a cable car ride and end at an adventure-packed amusement park are the way to go for families and fun-seekers of all ages. Step into a spacious gondola and embark on a ride that holds the Guinness World Record for the longest cross-sea cable ride at 10,892 feet. When you arrive at Vinpearl Land, the rides, waterpark, aquarium, and beach are yours to enjoy. It’s worth a pause in the action to enjoy a snack while sitting on a terrace that looks out over the sea.
A tour of Nha Trang will show off the city’s must-see sights and give you a picture of contemporary life, religious traditions, and natural wonders. Visit the Long Son Pagoda, the giant Buddha, and observe Buddhists praying at Po Nagar Cham Towers. Stop at Hon Chong and hear the folk legends of the overlapping rocks, and wade into the fray of daily shoppers at Dam Market and Xom Moi Market.
