Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Downtown Nha Trang
Nha Trang’s tourist hub is centred on Nguyen Thien Thuat, Hung Vuong and Tran Phu Boulevard, the busy, wide road that separates the city from the beach. The downtown core is where you will find the greatest concentration and range of accommodation, from $6 hostels and the ubiquitous skinny local hotels to international chain behemoths that occupy prime real estate along the coast. There is only one truly beachfront resort, otherwise staying downtown usually means a short walk to the beach. Furnished serviced apartments are on the rise; they can be booked whether you want to stay a few days or a few months, and they are great for families or those who like home-type comforts.

North of Tran Phu bridge
North of Tran Phu bridge and the promontory of boulders called Chong Rocks (Hon Chong) is a quiet stretch of coast with a local feel and far fewer tourists than Nha Trang beach. Here you can find ocean view beachfront accommodation at flashpacker to mid-range prices. The downside is the beach has more rubbish and you are four kilometres from the tourist hub. From 05:35-19:00 you can travel to and from the downtown core with the air-conditioned #4 Hon Xen – Vin Pearl bus, every 20 minutes, for 7,000 VND per ride, or taxi is always an option. Stay here if you don’t mind being away from the crowds.

Cam Lam District and Northern Cam Ranh Peninsula (coast between Nha Trang and Cam Ranh)
In between Nha Trang beach and Cam Ranh International Airport lies 30 kilometres of practically unspoilt coast. The jaw-droppingly beautiful 14-kilometre stretch north of the airport, where windswept white dunes tumble into sparkling azure waters, is the next big thing. Development is underway and it ranges from fenced off empty plots of sand to full-on construction sites.
A few ultra-luxurious boutique resorts opened in 2015 while a behemoth mega-resort that will include villas, suites and condominiums is in progress. Proposals for casinos have been tendered and more projects continue to be approved.
But for now there are miles of beautiful nothing. There are no budget accommodation at the moment; we imagine it is only a matter of time.
