Nha Trang Transport
Nha Trang is a relatively compact city which makes getting around fairly straightforward; it is possible to walk most places. The city has a reliable and cheap bus system which helps people to travel almost anywhere in the city inexpensively. A nice way to get around Nha Trang is by hiring a bicycle, which can be done at most hotels. Unfortunately, hiring a car in Nha Trang is not an option for most travellers, as one needs to hold a Vietnamese licence to do so, but hiring a car with a local driver is common practice. While taxis in Nha Trang provide an inexpensive means of transport, they can sometimes be difficult to find. Therefore it is best to call ahead and book a taxi or try finding a taxi outside any major hotel in the city. Furthermore, travellers are advised to insist that the taxi driver use a meter to avoid being overcharged. For an authentic Vietnamese way of travelling around Nha Trang, one can hire a cyclo with a driver for the day. Cyclos are not the fastest mode of transport but do provide a novel way of seeing the city.
