Hello, friends! Thank you for waiting for my Nha Trang 4d3n travelogue. I’ll share my itinerary with you and hope it’ll help you when planning your own trip.
Cam Ranh International Airport (Nha Trang) received flights from a host of domestic and international destinations. There are direct flights from Malaysia, China, Korea, Japan and Russia (chartered) and scheduled flights from Seoul, Guangzhou and Hong Kong.
My bestie, Jaycee been there 2 years ago. She told me she had an 11-hour train ride from HCM City. I was really lucky that AirAsia adds the latest destination to Nha Trang, Vietnam. It took me only 2 hours from KLIA2 to Cam Ranh International Airport (Nha Trang).
And the good news is, you can now fly to Nha Trang with AirAsia celebratory fares from as low as RM99* one-way. For latest AirAsia news, activities and promotions, please follow AirAsia on Twitter and Facebook.

Cab / Bus 🚕🚎
Nha Trang is a great city to explore. Cabs and buses are very convenient. The centre is compact and easily navigated on foot. Get yourself a pair of comfortable shoes and you have the whole Nha Trang with you.
You may use Vietnam Dong (VDN). Major credit cards are accepted in bigger business and hotels. However, I prefer using cash for payment because there are so many street foods for you to try out while walking to your attractions. Banks and ATMs are available on the street if you are running out of cash.
Nha Trang is GMT +7.
Best Time to visit ✈
February to May
Power Source 🔌
flat blade plug, two round pins, and two parallel flat pins with ground pin.
Business Hours 🕑
Shops are generally open from 8am – 9pm. Bars open late into the night, restaurants tend to close earlier, around 9pm.
Nha Trang is a safe city, there are lifeguards along most of the main beach too. I don’t usually carry my passport along when travelling, and I always carry a medium size sling bag to keep my phone, camera and cash.
Similar to Kuala Lumpur, it’s warm and humid, temperatures ranging from 21-35 Celsius. Bring along your sunscreen for sure!

Where to stay?🛌
As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Vietnam, Nha Thrang offers plenty of accommodation options that range from modest hostels for backpackers to five-star beachfront resorts with luxurious amenities. A lot of hotels in Nha Trang have kid’s clubs on offer, with great activities and babysitting services.
I have chosen both hotels/ resorts from the Nha Trang City and Nha Trang Bay & Islands. To help you decide where to stay in Nha Trang, I’ve compiled a quick rundown of its unique cities, islands and beaches as well as the pros and cons of each locale.
Resorts @ Nha Trang Bay & Islands 🏝
Nha Trang is surrounded by the Ninh Van Bay, Van Phong Bay, Whale Island, Hon Tre Island, and Hon Tam Island, all of which are a short ferry ride away. If you enjoy sunbathing and snorkelling, this would be your choice.
