Nha Trang a coastal city on the South Central Coast of Vietnam, about 450 km northeast of Saigon. It’s similar to Da Nang in that it’s a fully-fledged city next to a resort-quality beachfront. And like Da Nang it’s also experiencing a property boom, with new towers lining the seafront, making it into a mini Miami/Gold Coast.
What I like about Nha Trang is that it’s a working city by the sea, as opposed to being a string of resorts and little else. Step back a couple of blocks from the beachfront and it is a regular city.
Here are some of the projects that are under construction or planned for the future.
