Nahtrang – Sun, Sea, Sand / Pimps, Prostitutes and Pickpockets

Sunday, March 11th, 2007

I was warned about Nha-trang by a girl i met in the Perhentian Islands, so long ago in Malaysia. Why did i not listen to her?!

Nha-trang is a coastal city; the main resort in Vietnam.
With its wide beach and warm climate it attracts many backpackers on the South East Asian circuit. I was disappointed. The beach, though wide, long and palm fringed was average, with coarse sand and murky water. The town is developing rapidly and lacks character. Hotels, bars and restaurants are all spaced out and largely empty giving Nhatrang a feel that it has hit on hard times. It’s only redeeming feature was the broad promenade interspersed with tree lined parks and modern art (which the Vietnamese love – you find it everywhere) that bordered the beach.
