Most of what you'll do in Nha Trang will be focused around the beach and nearby islands. Boat trips with snorkelling and diving are especially popular It's also worth allocating a day to visiting some of the nearby sights. The Cham ruins at Po Nagar are especially worthwhile. Nha Trang's also a relatively easy place to get around by bicycle. If you’re travelling with kids, the cable car to Vinpearl Island will keep them amused for a day.
