Vietnamdrive would like to suggest the top 7 outstanding night activities in Nha Trang City, which can help you enjoy every nightlife moment during your trip to this charming coastal city.

1. Visit and shop at Nha Trang night market

You may like to buy souvenirs in the night market in Nha Trang.

Currently, Nha Trang has many different night markets, such as Yasaka Night Market, Tue Tinh Night Market – also called Nha Trang Night Market, and Hai Yen Night Market (Tropicana Shopping). Among them, Night Market Nha Trang is at 46 Tran Phu, which is large and attracts the most visitors and shoppers.

You can immerse yourself in a fun and youthful atmosphere when participating in this night attraction. This is because almost all people in this market are young visitors.

Shopping activities here mainly revolve around fashion items, souvenirs, and cuisine. Therefore, when visiting the night market, you can combine shopping for small Vietnamese souvenirs and enjoy snacks imbued with the coastal city’s culture.

However, we still caution you to carefully check the items you intend to buy at the night market, especially high-value items, and the face value of each banknote you are trading. Because under inadequate lighting at the night market, some unfortunate mistakes can happen if you lack observation.

Besides, you should also pay attention to your stomach’s adaptation before deciding to taste any food at the night market. It is because any inappropriate problem can cause trouble for your trip.

2. Enjoy local cuisine with many tasty dishes

After a day of traveling and sightseeing with many energy-consuming activities, the evening becomes a suitable time to enjoy delicious food and recharge the body.

In addition to the seafood dishes of shrimp, squid, snails, and crabs, which are typical of the coastal city, Nha Trang is also famous for many other local dishes, such as banh can, grilled spring rolls, grilled beef, pancake, fish noodle soup, fish salad, chicken rice.

To enjoy the local flavors of these dishes, you should seek suggestions from your tour guide or search in advance for a list of reputable, quality restaurants. Doing this will help you both save time and have a complete dinner.

At the restaurant, you should also ask the owner clearly about the price of each dish you request. At the same time, make sure you are not allergic to any ingredients in the dish you want to order.

Enjoy the evening with a tasty meal that promises to give valuable moments to you!

3. Watch the sea at night

Coming to the coastal city of Nha Trang, you cannot miss walking on the fine sand beach and watching the sea at night.

The proposed place to watch Nha Trang’s sea at night is a stretch of coastline about 7km, running parallel to Tran Phu Street.

It’s truly relaxing when under your feet is fine sand, and the surrounding space opens up, which seems endless. Next to it, small waves gently lapped at the shore, bringing with them a cool sea breeze, excitedly dispelling the dust and smoke in the city. In the distance, the lights from the fishing boats follow the waves as if to cover the vast ocean with its peaceful beauty.

As looking towards the shore, the city lights cast a few thin rays of light onto the sand, making the atmosphere here even more romantic and gentle. Maybe for that reason, this place has become an ideal date spot for couples in love.

Many young people also lie on the soft sand, watching the night stars or the gentle blue moonlight. They seem to release their daily fatigue and worries into the air to let the wind blow their minds away. And then collect an endless source of natural energy for their souls.

This simple thing at night in Nha Trang can become a lovely memory for your trip to this beach city. Remember to take time for this free but valuable!

4. Night squid fishing

Squid fishing is a typical activity of the coastal city at night that you can experience. It is because it opens up a stunning time to explore the real work of indigenous fishermen.

You and the local fisherman will board the boat to the sea together, light a lantern, and go fishing. Enjoy the exciting feeling of seeing the results that you have just caught from the sea. The squid sparkled under the dim light.

Also, there’s nothing better than the right moment to enjoy what you’ve just harvested in the middle of the sea.

To participate in night squid fishing, you need to contact a local tour organization. The reason is that this typical activity requires lots of auxiliary elements and requires high safety.

At the same time, you should not board a boat or go to sea with local individuals or fishermen who operate alone and lack organization and professionalism. Doing that is to ensure your safe trip.

5. Have fun at bustling bars

In the list of famous bars in Nha Trang, we mention names such as Skylight Bar, Sailing Club, Guru Sport Bar, Kisho Club, Altitude Rooftop Bar, and Havana Bar.

Depending on your preferences, you can choose an outdoor bar like Skylight. Sailing Club beach bar. Altitude Rooftop bar on the 28th floor of the Sheraton hotel. Or bars in Havana’s underground.

Whatever your choice, the bustling and vibrant space at the bars will bring you fun and uplifting moments.

Most bars in Nha Trang have opening hours from sunset until 1:00 AM or 1:30 AM. Therefore, it becomes an ideal meeting place for many young people who like to stay up late.

Of course, having fun at a bar is not an option that people who need quietness and relaxation should think about. It is better to choose other night activities if you belong to a quiet-liking group.

6. Watch a water music performance at VinWonders

The venue for the water music show is on Hon Tre Island, within the VinWonders Nha Trang amusement park (formerly known as Vinpearl Land Nha Trang).

Two ways to get to Hon Tre Island include a scenic cable car across the sea and a refreshing high-speed boat. No matter which transportation you choose, it takes you an enjoyable 10-12 minutes to cross the seawater to this island.

The water music show starts at 7:00 PM and ends at 7:15 PM daily. Thus, you will have about 15 minutes to admire the art of the perfect combination of sound, light, and water dance.

The water music show is like a bright puzzle that further impresses the attractive beauty of Nha Trang – one of the most impressive coastal cities in Vietnam.

The water music show only takes place during a fixed time frame and lasts about 15 minutes, so the advice for you is to arrange a reasonable travel time. Ideally, you arrive about 5-10 minutes earlier than the starting time to choose the best seating position.

Besides water music performances, Hon Tre is also a great island for sightseeing, swimming, watching coral, and many other marine activities for tourists. Therefore, you can combine exploring Hon Tre during the day and watching water music in the evening.

If you do not want to spend the night at Hon Tre, remember that the last cable car leaving the island to return to the city is at 11:00 PM, and the last high-speed boat leaves the station at around 2:00 PM.

7. Stroll at the main cathedral

The main Christ Cathedral, also known as Nha Trang Stone Church, is one of the outstanding tourist attractions, attracting a large number of tourists when coming to this coastal city.

However, in addition to discovering the magnificent Gothic architectural beauty of the church during the day, walking here at night gives you different emotions.

Under the neon lights, the cathedral looks even more majestic. With the spacious and breeze space, life suddenly becomes much more peaceful and gentle. Amid that lovely atmosphere is the fun laughter of the local people.

In particular, this cathedral has a foundation much higher than the city level, so coming here in the evening, you will have a great time breathing fresh air. Immerse yourself in the relaxing life of Nha Trang people every evening. And see the city glowing in lights right below your eyes.
