This is the perfect spot to learn how to dive while still keeping your budget in check. While the beaches are nice, keep in mind this place is very, very popular and can sometimes be a bit of a hassle, overpriced, or full of drunk tourists. Try to come here slightly off season or mid-week to avoid the crowds.
Hostel prices – Basic dorms start at 100,000 VND per night, while private rooms will cost around 500,000 VND per night for a double. Free WiFi is standard, and free breakfast is quite common. A few hostels also offer self-catering facilities.

Budget hotel prices

Expect to pay at least 200,000 VND for a basic double hotel room. Prices for nicer rooms go as high as 450,000 VND per night. Free WiFi is standard, and a handful of budget hotels also include free breakfast. Hotels located close to the beach will be more expensive. Airbnb is available in the city, and a shared room will cost at least 220,000 VND per night (though there are very few options for shared accommodation) while an entire apartment is at least 600,000 VND per night.

Average cost of food

Street food starts at 16,000 VND. Local food in restaurants starts at 25,000 VND for a basic meal, while Western food is more expensive, usually 75,000 VND and up. Domestic beer in restaurants will usually cost around 20,000 VND, though you can get it for a fraction of the price at smaller local places (sometimes as little as 3,000 VND!). If you plan on cooking your own meals, expect to pay at least 15,000 VND per week for groceries (though food is so cheap that you’re better off just eating out!)

Transportation costs

 If you stay near the beach you likely won’t need any transportation because you can walk everywhere. Buses are crowded but rarely cost more than 15,000 VND. A cycle-taxi ride is around 25,000 VND per kilometer. Regular taxis start at 25,000 VND per kilometer. Be sure to use only metered, nice-looking green and white taxis! For intercity travel, a train to Hanoi will cost around 1,100,000 VND while the bus will cost around 300,000 VND. The train south to Ho Chi Minh City will cost around 600,000 VND, while a bus will cost around 220,000 VND.

Suggested daily budget

680,000-900,000 VND / $30-40 USD (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in a hostel or cheap guesthouse, eating all the delicious street food, and using local transportation. If you stay in fancier accommodation or eat out more often, expect this number to be higher!)
Diving – There are quite a few dive shops in Nha Trang so it is possible to hunt around for the best price and bargain with the shop owners.Street food – As in most of Vietnam, street food is the cheapest and most exciting local food you can find. You can usually get delicious pork meat sandwiches on the street for about 44,000 VND.Find accommodation away from the beach – Hotels and Airbnb’s near the beach will be more expensive than those a bit further away. Stay further from the tourist hub to save yourself some money.
