Diving, snorkeling and boat trips to nearby islands are the most popular watersport activities. The crystal clear water allows for incredible visibility so get ready to witness the abundance of marine that lies beneath. For the more adventurous, why not rev up a jet ski and zip about on the open ocean. Parasailing also makes for a thrilling ride in the sky, and a chance to gaze out over the striking backdrop.

Nha Trang is by no means limited to aqua fun and sunbathing. The Ba Ho Waterfalls, just a short drive from the city centre, are a spectacular sight, which should not to be missed.
