Nha Trang is the most famous seaside resort-town in Central Vietnam. The city is more lively and urban in character than other beach destinations like Halong bay, Mui Ne beach, Danang city and Phu Quoc island. Nha Trang is also the scuba diving center of South East Asia. The city has a lot of attractions and events for you to discover on New Year holiday.
Hotels for NYE
Surrounded by green hills, with a deep-blue bay fringed by a six-kilometre white sand crescent shaped beach, Nha Trang is a popular and bustling seaside resort area. Vietnam’s “Riveria” boasts modern hotels, elegant Mediterranean villas, lots of restaurants and offshore islands – perfect for diving and snorkelling day trips. The main boulevard, Tran Phu Boulevard has a number of good hotels including the Ana Mandara Resort. Most booked hotels for New Year’s Eve 2017 are listed below:

It’s not hard to guess what the most popular cuisine in the coastal city of Nha Trang is. Still, seafood comes in many forms and combinations so variety can still be the spice of your culinary adventures here. Of course as Nha Trang is a tourist destination this means that you can try the upmarket five-star hotel dining options but it’s nice to know that there are lots of local down-home choices. In fact the only obstacle you will find is that not all menus are in English.
Scuba Diving & snorkeling
Close off-shore from Nha Trang sit a series of islands that offer decent diving and snorkeling, easily accessible by day trip. The city has about two dozen dive shops, making for fierce competition and great value. For certification training, Nha Trang offers perhaps the best value in the world, with PADI open water courses available with full equipment rental for as little as USD $200. A two-dive boat trip with equipment rental and modest lunch can be had for as little as USD $50, also a phenomenal value.
If you are planning to spend your next coming Christmas and New Years Eve 2018, early booking is highly recommended.
