The beaches in Nha Trang are municipal and offer lots of entertaining activities for visitors, from surfing to yachting. There are also diving centers for underwater addicts.

History

The history of the resort goes back to the ancient state of Champa that existed more than a thousand years ago. Today, tourists can see the heritage of the ancient times when visiting the famous Cham towers located on the northern bank of the Cai River.

Nha Trang was the sea gate of Champa as well as the main settlement of Kuatara. The Dai Viet civilization developed throughout the country. The lands began to be populated by the Vietnamese who conquered the new territories and brought their culture to this coastal village. Before the Vietnamese, Cham culture had its own territorial division, a strict hierarchy of power and even its own language. The ancient principality was too weak to withstand the powerful Vietnamese and numerous islands officially became part of the Vietnamese state.

Later, the development of territories stopped for a long time and the town turned into a modest fishing village. In the beginning of the 20th century, Nha Trang was acquired by the French and the area gained the status of an urban district.

Nha Trang was declared a city commune in 1937. After the Vietnam War, the city became the center of Khanh Hoa province. Since that time, the city has been actively developing and expanding its territories.
