    Been there. If you like places like Pattaya you'll like it. Similar vibe minus the flesh trade. Personally very meh on the palce and wouldn't bother on a return

    I've been there twice...it's a great escape during Songkran.

    I don't quite get the 'Pattaya minus the sex trade' comment. It's like saying it's 'like Pattaya but completely different'.

    Some decent restaurants around where, unlike Thailand, a decent bottle of wine can be had for less than 800 baht.

    Wasn't there a thread on the place a while back?

    Ive been a couple of times. Its ok. Nothing flash. Beaches are just so so. Some good food to be had but if nightlife pattaya styles yer thing then it might disapoint. But having said that i was with the wife both times so didnt let the ferrett out for a run. Seems to be well popular with russians to. Couple of good craft beer bars on the beach. Quite a cheap place to visit as well.

    Giant corporate resort feel with shit beaches and a plethora of speedo wearing fat Germans and Russians.

    Hope that helps

    That's what I heard as well from friends that have been there. You can take a booze cruise if so inclined.
    I heard Mui Ne is a nice beach with sand dunes and a bit quieter than Nha Trang. It is closer to Ho Chi Minh.

    I also heard there are a lot of rats that come out at night in Nha Trang... lol.. seriously.

    If you would like to do a quiet beach, Bai Xep (Quy Nhon) is the best one. Check out the weather forecast beforehand for a visit to Phu Quoc island, Con Dao island, Mui Ne beach, An Bang beach or Nha Trang beach.
    P/s: Vung Tau beach is the nearest one from HCMC.

    Nha trang has the best beach in the southern Vietnam, there are some great places you cann find like two islands connected to eath other with small sand dunes inbetween of blue water. But i would suggest you to take this trip in the July - August for the best experience. Other great place such as Halong Bay, My Khe and Phu Quoc
