The coastal city of Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa province, Central Vietnam, lies on the trans-Vietnam highway, 1,278km from Hanoi, and 442km from Ho Chi Minh City.
Nha Trang is endowed by nature with deep, quiet and warm waters all the year round, surrounded by archipelagoes, islands, mountains and white sand beaches – a wonderful and attractive tourist resort. To the north of Nha Trang stands the Chong mount which looks like a wide open hand over the sea. Far offshore, the Yen island appears with lush green colours where salangane nests have been harvested for years to make the traditional “bird’s nest” tonic and food.
The 7 km white sand beach of Nha Trang is often called Vietnam’s Mediterranean Area,considered one of the jewel along Vietnam’s long stretching coast line. Nha Trang is sunny all year round, with an average temperature of 23°C  due to northern winds.
The rainfall is less than anywhere else in the country and the area is not threatened by storms since it is protected by the Truong Son Mountains and Ca Pass. From Ca Pass, one can see Ro Paddle, Ke Ga Cape, Hon Do, and Tran Nam Paddle.
Nha Trang has many specialties. Every year, bird’s nest soup, or Yen nest soup, is cooked. Nha Trang has the most Yen birds in all of Vietnam. The magnificent coral seabed in Nha Trang makes it ideal for scubadiving and snorkeling.
Nha Trang is 105 km from Phan Rang, 190 km from Buon Ma Thuot, 215 km from Da Lat, 238 km from Qui Nhon, 445 km from Ho Chi Minh city, 1299 km from Ha Noi
