When one mentions travelling to Vietnam, the few common places that you’ll think of is Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and Hue. While the country is relatively small in size, there are actually many other places you can discover instead of the usual few. One of them is none other than Nha Trang, which is Vietnam’s famous seaside resort-town. Bet you didn’t know that, right?

Here are some of the awesome things you can do (and photograph!) in Nha Trang that will make you the envy of your friends!

Don’t have the budget to go to France? Not to worry, because there is a 19th century French Gothic style cathedral in Nha Trang known as Christ the King Cathedral. Locals call it Nha Trang Cathedral and it is the largest church in the city with 4,000 tombstones at the side of the building. It is a fully functioning Catholic church that has striking stained glass windows that will provide the perfect backdrop for your #travel photos.

Nha Trang is surrounded by nature at its finest and one of these nature hotspots is Ba Ho Waterfall which consists of three natural waterfalls and crystal clear pools. Located about 45-minute away from downtown Nha Trang, you will need to rent a motorbike or hire a taxi to get you here.

The way up to the waterfalls can be rather steep but don’t worry, as the red arrows along the way will guide you. The reward when you reach the top is worth it, as you get to relax amidst the lush green forest, cool off in the waters and take photos of the breathtaking views.

This temple was built by the Cham people to honour Yan Po Nagar, the goddess of the country and is a place that is brimming with history, especially since it was built during the 7th and 12th centuries.

It used to have ten towers but time has not been kind to the temple and now only four towers remain. This mystical place looks absolutely stunning in photographs and has fantastic views of the Cai River as well.
