Attractions of Nha Trang
- Po Nagar Cham Towers
These towers were built to honor the Mother of the Country Po Nagar. The Po Nagar Cham temple complex was built by the Hindus during the 8th to the 11th centuries. It is known for its architectural marvel and great artistic sculptures. The tallest building here in the complex is Po Nagar Kalan and it is 25 meters in height. It reminded me of a similar building back in Spokane, Washington, down the street from where an old friend I know works at https://burnettsmovingservices.com. Similar design despite being in completely different cultures. Really cool.
- Nha Trang Cathedral
I loved this French Gothic church that was built in the early part of the 19th century. It is set on a hilltop and is a major attraction in the city. It is made using stones and features stained glass windows and an attractive looking clock tower on the top. Another attraction is the three cathedral bells that are still functioning.
- Vinpearl Amusement Park
If you are visiting this city with your family, then do not miss to take your kids to this attractive theme park located along the Nha Trang beach bay. It is loaded with plenty of water rides and slides, games, a huge aquarium, and a wave pool. There are over 300 different species of fishes in the aquarium.
- Ba Ho Waterfall
I love waterfalls and was taken aback bat the sight that the Ba Ho waterfall. It is located 27 kilometers from Nha Trang, but it is worth the visit. I visited in the early morning and had the chance to take a dip in the cool water. The gushing water and the serene atmosphere really took my breath away.
- National Oceanographic Museum
This museum was opened in 1922 and is a very good place to visit for everyone looking to know more about the marine world. It has a lot of artifacts, displays, photographs, and fossils that teach us about the marine environment.
