    Hi Guys,

    Ive been trowling through this site trying to plan where I want to go in Vietnam.
    I really just want to spend a few days to a week travelling around the islands and enjoying the beaches here more than anything else.
    Has anyone got any reccomendations of the best scenic/lively(ish) beachs please.

    Also I plan to travel by bus/train overnight from Cambodia into Vietnam - so any recommended crossings from camodia to get to the islands faster would also really be appreciated.

    For a lively/ish time I would recommend Nha Trang. Its has a decent amount of bars with really good happy hour deals as well as tour organizers offering booze cruises to outlying islands.
    A ton of young backpackers and cheap prices made this a pretty good party scene.

    Like jnelson232 Nha Trang probably your best bet for lively beaches. I personally liked Cui Dai beach which is near Hoi An, very relaxing as well as some great seafood restaurnats. Mui Ne has a nice stretch of beach too, although the nighlife can be a little quite alothough there are some small little bars that can be busy enough at night.

    If you are travelling to Vietnam from Cambodia, You can take a bus to get to Ha Tien , and from Ha Tien you can take a ferry to visit Phu Quoc island which is the largest island in Vietnam. You will see that is one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam. Hope you have a nice trip.

    Phnom Penh to Saigon by bus including customs is 6 hours. Its very easy - no problems.

    I have been based in Nha Trang in Vietnam for the last 3 odd years.

    I stay at Hon Chong beach 3 odd ks from the tourist area.
    Great spot to enjoy beach life.

    Not been to Mui Ne but believe it is better for wind sports. Accommodation / restaurants are more spread out.

    The tourist area of Nha Trang is all around 1 block though it is starting to expand.

    Have a good trip.

    Hi,
    Vietnam is a wonderful place to have vacations.. There are so many beaches to visit.. One of my favourite is China Beach , located between Da Nang and Hoi An, China Beach is most famous for its20-mile stretch of luscious beachfront property. This is where UStroops landed during the Vietnam War in the 1970s. It is also known forbeing a hangout for US soldiers, and over the years, it has transformeditself into a stunning Asian beach destination that boasts upscalecomfort, service, and amenities.


    I hope this will help you out!
