Flyboarding (also known as water sport) is a new game in many Vietnamese waters. With powerful jet engines, visitors will be instructed to balance, surf on the sea, and be acrobatic. This is one of those games that is very difficult and requires a lot of skill, but in return, the experience it brings is memorable.

The usual playing area will be the Ana Marina or Hon Tam Marina. The most beautiful time of the day is from 8 am – 10 am and 15h – 5 pm.

Beginners will have 10 minutes of training to balance and move on the engine and then 15 minutes of live play… Women, young children, or those who like to experience it immediately will be supported or hugged by the coach on the motor. The price of this game is about 1.2 – 1.5 million VND.

Three beautiful islands are located in Nha Trang Bay, including Mun Island – Mieu Island – Tam Island. From the city, visitors will ride to Nha Trang Tourist Pier (Vinh Truong ward) to board boats and canoes to the islands. Many tourism companies have exploited this 3-island tour with the price of 200,000 – 900,000 VND/person.

Mun Island is the most romantic island in Nha Trang, with white sand stretching, clear blue water, and rich coral forests.

Tri Nguyen Aquarium is located on Mieu islet. This is a man-made lake that was constructed in the 1970s. A solid stone embankment system shaped like a giant boat separates the lake. There are hundreds of species of sea creatures inside. Come here; visitors can fish.

To Mieu Island, visitors must visit Soi Beach. Completely different from the white, smooth sandy coastline, Bai Soi has a thorny feature with millions of beautiful, colorful pebbles crowded along the coast. Walk on these stones, and you will feel very relaxed, and this is also great natural massage therapy.

Not far away is Bai Tranh – where visitors can immerse themselves in the water, enjoy cocktails, and recline on hammocks along the coast… or play water sports such as flying parachutes, banana floats, scuba diving, and walking in the sea.

At Hon Mieu with Fishing Village, visitors will come to the floating restaurants for lunch with fresh seafood dishes.

The last island in Nha Trang Bay that visitors should visit is Hon Tam. Viewed from above, the island is like a silkworm spitting its silk toward the sea. Visitors can come here to spend the night. Especially there is a herbal mud bath to relax the body.

Nha Trang is attractive, with its beautiful beaches, and impressed by the unique architecture. And Ponagar Tower is one of Vietnam’s impressive Champa cultural, architectural complexes.

Ponagar Tower, located on a 50-meter-high hill, has three floors: the lowest floor has the historic tower, which is no longer in use. On the middle floor is called Mandapa, composed of 4 octagonal columns that create an extraordinary architectural whole.

The bricks are very tightly placed and there are almost no adhesive marks between them, which makes the buildings’ structure unique. The tower is decorated with reliefs such as the image of the dancing dancer Apsara, the god Shiva.

Especially inside is the statue of the goddess Po Ina Nagar (according to the Cham belief) or the Holy Mother of Heavenly Medicine (according to the Vietnamese idea); the statue is carved of granite, sitting on the lotus radiating a majestic and reverent appearance.

Behind the tower, artisans also perform Cham dance, weaving brocades to serve tourists… In the tower area, there is also the Cham Culture Museum displaying relief statues, musical instruments, and Cham costumes.

Interestingly, visitors can buy ornaments from brocades or terracotta made by Cham artisans to bring back as gifts. The tower is open throughout the week; the entrance fee is 30,000 VND/person.
