and cooked while on the beach.
5. Yang Bay Waterfalls:
located less than 40kms from downtown Nha Trang, the waterfalls of Yang

of Nha Trang, which sits between the old and new bridges. For some of the
freshest seafood ever tasted, and a good look at traditional fishing communities,
visit the town's fishing village.

this attraction shows a truly majestic, ancient structure that was built
by the Cham people centuries ago. Today, it is a place of worship for Buddhist
followers in Nha Trang. To get to the towers, visitors must pass through
the 'untouristy' areas of the city.

citizens that died protesting against Diem in the middle of last century.

the Cathedral of Nha Trang. It also overlooks the city, giving spectacular
