A seaside city on the south-central coast, Nha Trang ranks among the top beach resorts in Vietnam. With a population of 400,000, it exudes a small-town atmosphere. The resort area is flanked by nearly 10 kilometers of prime beach and is the perfect venue for small meetings and incentives with several white-sand islands. Nha Trang event venues may comprise French Colonial, traditional or luxury modern features.
Cam Ranh International Airport (a military airport built by the U.S. during Vietnam War) is now the airport of the city. It is 45 kilometers from the center of the city and is the fourth busiest in Vietnam, serving domestic and international flights and charters. Nha Trang is 1,287 kilometers south of Hanoi, 624 kilometers south of Hue and 442 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon).
Among the meeting venues in Nha Trang, the 7,500-seat Crown Convention Center has the biggest stage in Southeast Asia (1,500 square feet). It was built in 2008, when it hosted the Miss Universe Contest that year. The Center's 10,000 square meters of convention space is equipped with an audio-visual system that was imported from the U.S.
Hotel venues in Nha Trang include the 284-room Sheraton Nha Trang Hotel & Spa, with 17,000 square feet of meeting space and two divisible ballrooms, each offering a capacity for 350. The 201-room Yasaka Saigon-Nha Trang Hotel, close to the airport, has 10,000 square feet of space, with four meeting rooms, the largest of which has the capacity to cater for 600. The 154-room Novotel Nha Trang has 3,000 square feet of space in one room.
Nha Trang enjoys the best climate in Vietnam, with an estimated 250 days of sunshine a year and warm water all year long. A popular activity is a boat trip to Mun Island for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling at a nearby coral reef, then to Mot Island for lunch and drinks at a floating bar. Activities include cycling, hiking, scuba diving and snorkeling. This is followed by a visit a fishing village. Close to the city is an astounding countryside with steep mountains and plush paddy fields.
