Which is the best way to travel around Nha Trang? Recently, it has become an attractive destination for international tourists thanks to its beautiful beaches and islands.

How to travel around Nha Trang - From the airport to the city and vice versa

It should be noted that if you travel to Nha Trang, you will stop at Cam Ranh airport, which is far away from Nha Trang. Hence, how to get to the city from that airport is a big question for tourists.


The most convenient way to get to the city is from the airport and vice versa. However, you should be careful of taxi scams if you are not familiar with the taxi system in Vietnam in general. Here are some trusting taxi brands you should take notes of. The one-way route normally costs 300.000 VND - 350.000 VND.
