When looking for beachside locations in Vietnam, you are absolutely spoiled for choice.
While the country has a long coastline, what is still very much unknown, is information about one such beach paradise and the easy access it has to a sprinkling of islands that make for exquisitely restful getaways from the world.
If you are looking for a beach side city with access to several beautiful islands + is known to have 300 days of sunshine a year, then you need to head to Nha Trang.
While the city boasts panoramic shorelines, sunsets and sunrises to colour your experience, and some of the best seafood in Vietnam. What was amazing to find out from my guest Colm Hutchinson, an Irish expat living in Nha Trang is that is has much more than meets the eye.
In the show Colm, who has been running his own digital media company, Halo Media since 2015, speaks to the changes that have taken place over the past 12 years, and how Nha Trang faired during the pandemic. I won't kid you here, it has received over time - good and not so good reviews.
Colm fell in love literally with Nha Trang as he married a local Vietnamese and is raising his young family there. He says he has seen a lot of tourists come and go, and now the country is open, it’s a great time to visit as the burden of 'over tourism' is long past.
The best thing about Colm and the role he plays in the city’s tourism, is that he does a lot of digital media work with local hotels, tourism bodies, brands and eating establishments.
In fact, he has the foreigners perspective to offer up for us travellers and the local viewpoint being a resident for so long.
He does a fantastic job in our interview as he speaks so fluently to the 10, actually 11 things, he thinks make Nha Trang such a special place.
