The main beach at Nha Trang is six kilometres long. A long palm tree-lined boulevard runs the length of it and continues out to the north and south. It is lined with restaurants, clubs, micro-breweries and 5 star hotels that would be at home in the world's ritziest and most expensive resorts. This place never sleeps: there is always something to do. It is also home to a growing and thriving expatriate community in which Australians feature prominently, as do French, Germans, North Americans and many others.
