Photos of Nha Trang Vietnam

Nha Trang

When we first arrived in Nha Trang, Vietnam we were not sure what to make of it. It seems to be a favorite vacation spot for Russians and the streets and beaches are packed with them.

From the ancient temple tower of Po Nagar to the ultra-modern and touristy amusement park at Vinpearl, we always had something to keep us busy. In-between seeing the sights, we enjoyed lounging on the beach and playing in the warm South China Sea. I hope you enjoy the photos…
