Nha Trang Vietnam Shore Excursion - The highlight of this private shore trip is taking a boat down the Cai River to see the peaceful life of local villages along Nha Trang's main waterway. You will get a chance to meet local people and see how they live their daily lives. You also visit Nha Trang City to see some of its top monuments.

After meeting your guide at the pier you will drive into Nha Trang where you will them reach a harbor to take a boat trip up the Cai River. During the river cruise you will see a boatyard where typical fishing boats are made. You will stop and visit a family who makes traditional clay stoves and then visit a colorful local market. There is the chance to visit an ancient house where 4 generations of one family are living together and also the chance to walk among rice fields and then enjoy fresh fruit in an orchard. On school days you can stop at a local kindergarten to meet the children. This river cruise through the Vietnamese countryside is a real treat.

A stop is included for you to enjoy lunch at a peaceful restaurant along the riverbank (drinks not included).

This afternoon you visit the Po Nagar Temple Tower which was built in the 8th century. The temple is located on Mount Cu Lao which offers panoramic views of the surrounding area. This unique structure is a symbol of Hindu Champa culture. The tower was named in honor of a princess who introduced her people to weaving and wet rice cultivation. Today the tower remains a place of worship for many.

Next is a stop at the Xom Bong Bridge where former Cham spiritual mediums used to live. Today you can admire the colorful local fishing boats in the river below.

Then we come to Long Son Pagoda with the huge statute of Buddha, founded in the late 19th century. If you are up to the challenge, you can climb the 152 stone steps leading to the giant white Buddha seated on a lotus blossom. There are wonderful views over the whole city from this spot.

Later you visit the Dam Market for shopping and learn about the market culture of the Vietnamese people. You will stroll amongst thousands of locals who are purchasing their daily food, clothes and more. You will see fruit, vegetables and seafood, plus local Nha Trang specialties such as dried seahorses and lizards.

Before returning to the pier, there is a stop at the King Bao Dai summer villa where you have a chance to enjoy a cold beer or soft drink (not included).
