For many people, Nha Trang is a popular city to split the trip between Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh. But, when you are looking for a very chilled beach vibe, this is not the place to be. The beaches are not bad but the fast-growing tourism has made some locals greedy and unfriendly.
Pushy vendors and aggressive taxi drivers are common complaints of travellers staying in Nha Trang. For these reasons, we recommend staying in Quy Nhon instead. Quy Nhon has a long stretched beach where hotels don’t ruin your view and locals greet you with a big smile.
Don’t forget that Hoi An also has pretty beaches with a much better vibe than the over touristic beaches of Nha Trang.
