What to do in Nha Trang, Vietnam with kids

After our bus ride through hell, we arrived in Nha Trang sleepy and not sure what to do. Right away, we were lucky to met another family from Canada, traveling Vietnam for a month with their two young boys. It was so nice for all of us to make new friends!

We spent a fabulous week in Nha Trang. The city attracts a lot of Vietnamese and Russian tourists and has a great vibe. If you're considering a beach holiday with kids, Nha Trang would be hard to beat. Here's what to do in Nha Trang with Kids:

Vinpearl Land - Located on it's own island, Vinpearl is like the Disneyland of Vietnam. There are amusement rides for kids, both big and small. Take the cable car from Nha Trang, the views are spectacular. We spent almost the entire day at the waterpark. Be sure to check out the aquarium on the walk to the water park.

Tip: The cave part of the lazy river can be a little scary for small kids.

Nha Trang Beach - The beach was just perfect. We chose to rent chairs at Louisiane Brewhouse for $40,000 per day ($1.90 US) where they have a pool. The pool was a bit too deep, even for the adults.

National Oceanographic Museum - What a hidden gem! When we visited there was hardly anyone else there. The museum has a real impressive marine exhibit, both indoor and outdoor. They have some of the largest turtles we've ever seen. The National Oceanographic Museum is located on the way to Vinpearl,

Mud Bath - all of us had the best time ever playing in the mud.  There are several mud baths to choose from.  We went to Thap Ba Hot Springs.  Your time is a bit limited for the actual mud bath portion, which was probably a good thing. However, they have 4 pools to choose from, including a kiddie pool with a shallow end and slides.

Kid Carnival - We found an awesome night carnival that our kids absolutely loved located here. It has a rollercoaster, bumper cars, viking swing, bounce houses, ball pit and more. All the rides we pretty cheap too, between 5,000 - 15,000 dong ($0.20 - $0.70 USD).

Tip: We always saw plenty of taxis driving around Nha Trang, so there's no need to hire a taxi for the day. Also, always pick a reputibale looking car (we stuck with the green and white Mai Linh).

Anyone else have some fun things they did in Nha Trang?
