Nha Trang is an incredible Vietnamese town right on the beach front. The Government backpacker bus route includes Nha Trang and is a must see destination for unwinding after a 10 hour bus ride from Hoi An.
The water temperature is great, merely watch out for getting in, the break is small but powerful and your swimwear can easily be sucked off!
Mama Hahn party boats are ideal ways to head out and see the nearby islands and relax in an inflatible tractor innertube with a cocktail! On the islands there are also options for jet-skiiing for around $15 for 15 minutes. Splitting this cost with a friend is a good suggestion. There are other alternatives to Mama Hahn and you can jump from boat to boat.
Rainbow Divers is one of the 3 diving operations based in Nha Trang and has the most awareness in the town. Many people wear the compants polo shirts in exchange for dives. This company was started by an English man, another company, Octopus Diving, was started by a German-Dutch couple.
The diving in Nha Trang isn't particularly amazing and there are same priced dives, with more to see, in Thailand. This areas' biodiversity is most similar to the eastcoast of Thailand, Koh Tao, yet there is only one Japanese Garden coral reef, and that is in Koh Tao. However, since the Tsunami in 2004 people are choosing to head to the Pacific/South China Sea.
Thap Ba - Po Nagar Festival
The Sea Festival
Warm and humid year round.
In the evening, the best bar is Blue Gecko, where Snow will serve you the best drinks and the best music.
After 1 in the morning, all bars generally close and people congregate at the Sailing Club on the beach (all bars and this club have free entry). A walk back to your $3 for a room hotel is merely a few minutes away. Be careful, it should be safe, but you never can tell.
Hotels are closed at night and a night watchmen will let you in.

Vietnam's international dialing code is +84. To call to other countries from Vietnam, start with 00, followed by the international number, usually without the first 0. International and domestic phone calls are available in almost every hotel or internet café. International phone charges are high in Vietnam and hotels often add a mark up fee so it is smart to always check the rates before dialling. Public phones require phone cards, which are available at post offices.
Some common and useful phone codes are:
Vietnam Post is the government owned national postal service of Vietnam. Services are generally fairly reliable, cheap but not overly fast, except express services. Express Mail Service (EMS) ensures that letters and small parcels are delivered within 24-48 hours domestically. International EMS is associated with over 50 countries worldwide, with a delivery time ranging from 2 to 10 days. Regular services are cheaper but much slower. Most post offices keep much longer hours than most other official businesses, usually starting from 6:30am until 9:30pm and also open on Saturday and even Sunday. You can buy stamps here and they also offer other services like money transfers. You can also try other companies to send parcels, for example with DHL, TNT and UPS.
