Nha Trang “Insider” Tour - Full Day
Today’s tour will begin at 8:30. Start this exciting insider’s day tour of Nha Trang with a visit to the spectacular Po Nagar Temple Tower. Dating back to the 8th-century, this site boasts unique architecture that reflects its Hindu Champa culture. Learn about its history while watching as local worshippers of all religions come to pay homage.
Then take a stroll through a small local alleyway well off the usual tourist trail. Enter into a boat builder’s house and board a riverboat for a scenic cruise. Float past lush countryside, a boatyard that makes fishing boats and by a photogenic fleet at a fishing village. The time on the boat, floating gently down the river, is truly a highlight of today’s tour.
Disembark in another small village and visit family workshops where traditional clay stoves and rush mats are produced. Continue to the village’s colourful market to see the vast array of local items on sale.
Journey deeper into the countryside, stopping amid the verdant rice fields for photos. Depending on the time of year, farmers and buffalo may be hard at work planting, ploughing or harvesting the crops. After this thrilling morning immersed in Nha Trang’s rural beauty, it’s time for lunch. Dine on a meal of authentic Vietnamese dishes at an ‘ancient house’ located on the shores of a lotus pond. Enjoy the subtle flavours of the meal while soaking up the tranquil surroundings.
Late this afternoon, return to Nha Trang with a camera full of lasting memories. (L)
