What to do in Nha Trang
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 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 to stay in Quy Nhon instead. Quy Nhon has a long stretched beach, where hotels don’t ruin your view and locals will greet you with a big smile.
Don’t forget that also Hoi An has pretty beaches with a much better vibe than the over touristic beaches of Nha Trang.

My favourite places to stay in Nha Trang
John’s Homestay is a charming yet low-priced homestay right in the heart of Nha Trang.
The shared lounge and terrace are the perfect place to socialize with other guests and rooms are clean and tidy. Dorms come with an electric plug, lamp and curtain for each bed and another plus: You can use the washing machine free of charge!Room €13; Dorm: €6 (+ free breakfast)
Want to wake up in a stylish & spacious room and enjoy a tasty breakfast on the rooftop restaurant?
Mojzo Inn is located close to the restaurants, bars and just a few minutes walk from the beach. When you stay at Mojzo, make sure you don’t miss out on the delicious (and free) home-baked cake served at tea time between 15:00-17:00.Private room: €26 (+ free breakfast)
