The beautiful road does not yet have a name, but visitors will never forget their journey on it as they drive past a world of interesting daily life activities and landscapes typical of a coastal locality in central Vietnam.
The road winds for 10 kilometers up and down hillsides, overlooking Nha Trang Bay and fishing villages where local people demonstrate their techniques for catching fish and shrimp.
A quiet bay called Nha Phu appears at the end of the road connecting Nha Trang and National Highway 1A, over 10 kilometers from the center of the city. This bay of primeval islets and white-sand beaches is part of Nha Trang Bay, and has recently emerged on tourism maps as an attractive destination for travelers in central Vietnam.
Vo Ngoc Tuan, a tour guide with HCMC-based Vietmark, was born and grew up in the central coastal region. He tells an interesting story about what happens daily at the bay. He says the many poles that people can see on the surface of the water in Nha Phu Bay are a device used by locals to catch baby lobsters.
The local people gather dry corals and drill many holes into them before tying them to the poles. Waves drive baby lobsters into the holes which the locals will catch to raise for 12 to 14 months in their ponds before selling them to the market or restaurants.
Nha Phu is a haven for nature lovers who want to immerse themselves in tranquility. In the summer groups of vacationers travel to the bay by boat, spending the whole day swimming in the sea and lying on the white-sand beaches, or resting under the shade of Casuarina trees and listening to the pleasant sound of waves gently lapping against the shore.
Thi Islet is one of the more popular islands. It features a pristine beach for swimming and playing games, and visitors can enjoy char-coal-grilled or fried fresh seafood, meat and vegetables that are served on bamboo tables.
Those are just some of the attractions of Khanh Hoa Province. The best way to view the landscapes along the road is to travel by motorcycle. There are many opportunities for visitors to stop and take pictures of their favorite scenes and breathe in the fresh sea air around Nha Trang Bay, which is known as one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
