The capital of Khanh Hoa province in south-central Vietnam, Nha Trang makes an ideal stop-off for a beach break between the sight-seeing of the country's north and south. The coast around Nha Trang is renowned for its miles of white-sand beaches and the town itself is built on a beautiful bay with a palm-lined beach stretching for miles in each direction. Offshore, numerous islands and coral reefs dot
the turquoise waters and make for excellent diving and snorkelling. Keen divers should avoid December and January, as rougher weather makes for poor underwater visibility, but for most of the year the climate is ideal because the region is sheltered by mountains to the west. This means Nha Trang holidays benefit from the region's micro-climate, which sees the lowest level of humidity in Vietnam, with some 250 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of around 26C. Besides the beach, there is picturesque scenery in the vicinity of Nha Trang, which can be explored on a guided tour or by mountain bike. Sights in the city include the Long Son Pagoda, with its huge statues of the Buddha, and the ancient Po Nagar temples. Nha Trang is renowned for its seafood, and there are many good restaurants and cafes along the beachfront, as well as lively bars in the evenings.

Holy everything! WOW! We adored the Park Hyatt and our suite (which was a massive surprise) was gorgeous. What a lovely, chic and very classy hotel that is. Not over the top and deeply comfortable. We look forward to returning there. Six Senses is also an extraordinarily beautiful place.
