Po Nagar Cham Towers
The Cham towers of Po Nagar were built between the 7th and 12th centuries. The site was used for Hindu worship as early as the 2nd century AD. Today, both ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese Buddhists come to Po Nagar to pray and make offerings, according to their respective traditions. This site has a continuing religious significance, so do remember to remove your shoes before entering.
All the tourist literature touts Hon Mieu (also called Tri Nguyen Island) as the site of an outdoor aquarium (Tri Nguyen Fish Lake). Tri Nguyen Fish Lake is situated on Bong Nguyen Island, also called Hon Mieu Island, Nha Trang Bay; half an hour from Cau Da Port, Nha Trang City, Khanh Hoa Province.
Long Son Pagoda
Perhaps the most impressive sight in Nha Trang, aside from the beach and Cham towers, is Long Son Pagoda, also known as Tinh Hoi Khanh Hoa Pagoda and An Nam Phat Hoc Hoi Pagoda. It's about 500m west of the train station. The Pagoda was first built on Mount Trai Thuy in 1886 and named Dang Long Pagoda. In 1900, the Pagoda was damaged in a storm and was rebuilt down the mountain in its present location.
Dai Lanh Beach
Semicircular, casuarina-shaded Dai Lanh Beach is a gorgeous spot 83km north of Nha Trang and 150km south of Quy Nhon, right on Hwy 1. Other than the turquoise water, soft cream-coloured sand and quiet, there's a whole lot of nothing around.
Tam Island is located in Vinh Nguyen Ward, to the South of Nha Trang Bay, 3 nautical miles from Nha Trang Port, Khanh Hoa Province. Hon Tam is well known by the wild tropical forest, long beach and clear water. Around the rock range, thousands kind of fish and colorful corals make tourists exciting and peaceful.
