Visit the Famous 24-Metre Tall Buddha!

Your private, English-speaking guide will be waiting for you at Nha Trang port with a smile and welcome sign! Once you’ve exchanged greetings, you’ll transfer to a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle for your exploration of this culturally rich region. Located at the foot of Trai Thuy Mountain, Long Son Pagoda is a beautiful temple with a rich history of housing high-ranking Buddhist monks. In 1936, the Vietnam Buddhist Studies Foundation was founded here. Ornately decorated with dragons, mystical animals, and Taoist gods, this beautiful temple is testament to Taoist architecture. If you’re feeling energetic, you can brave the 152 steps to reach the famous 24-metre tall white Buddha, which can be seen from any spot in the town.

Afterwards, we will visit a local family for an insight into the local way of life at Nha Trang. Learn how this family sustains themselves on Vietnamese mat weaving and uncover the techniques used in this ancient art form.

Learn How to Make Conical Hats With a Local

With all this incredible countryside surrounding us, it would be madness not to explore! We will cruise through the countryside in our air-conditioned vehicle for breathtaking vistas of vibrant rice paddies, tropical foliage, and surrounding mountains. You may even catch glimpses of local farmers at work in the fields!

Hidden deep in the countryside, we will visit an ancient house for an insight into historical architecture and sample local fruits. We will also get the opportunity to witness the process of making conical hats!

Cruise Along the River

The next leg of our Nha Trang excursion is to the stunning river running through the area, Cai. Cruising along the river is an excellent way to escape the sometimes-hectic city of Nha Trang and to witness the local way of life along the river banks. This 30-minute river journey is a fantastic way to get up close and personal with the untouched nature surrounding Nha Trang and to get another perspective of the city that is not the bustling seaside resort tourists know and love!

Last Stop, Po Nagar Temple!

After we’ve taken all the pictures of rice paddies and stunning scenery our cameras can handle, we’ll make our way to Po Nagar temple, built by the architecturally-adept Champa people. Built between the 8th and 13th centuries, this imposing temple has three floors, all built in brick and decorated in stone to worship the deities and to depict Brahmin religious themes. Unfortunately, it is now time to return to your port, but no need to worry! Your guide will get you back in plenty of time for your cruise ship!
