Nha Trang has a very large beach and ocean front area. There used to be a lot of beach front rooms to be had, but over the past number of years, many of the smaller French Colonial buildings have been torn down to make way for new super hotels. There are 2 beaches in Nha Trang that have beachfront hotels. One being the Bai Duong, and the other the Nha Trang beach. In the north part of the city, the oceanside street is called Pham Van Dong. The street name changes as it crosses the river to the downtown area to Tran Phu.
On this page, I have included a photo of all the hotels along these roads. Click on a picture and you can view them in closer detail.
Area1: I will start on Pham Van Dong street and move southwards. Area1 offers a truley unique experience. It is in a Vietnamese area with very limited English services. There are no agressive sales people and a very friendly environment. The best seafood restaurants are located in this area.
Area2 covers from the downtown area to the end of the backpacker area, It s the closest to downtown shopping and the commercial district. Some of the finest western and European restaraunts along with busy nightlife can be found in the backpack area.
Area3 starts beyond the Backpack area for about 1.5 kilometers. This area can be very congested and noisy but offers some lower cost accomodation. Most tourists in these hotels are Vietnamese from Saigon and Hanoi.
