Vietnam’s Nha Trang City moves toward sustainable marine tourism

Nha Trang, the capital city of the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa, is leveraging its strengths in marine and island tourism toward sustainable development.

The tourism industry in Khanh Hoa, particularly in Nha Trang, is on a rapid recovery trajectory following the COVID-19 pandemic, according to VietnamPlus. Last year, the province served over 7 million tourists, with the beach city accounting for approximately 70 percent of the total figure.

The rapid growth of Nha Trang’s tourism can be attributed to the unique value of Nha Trang Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the world, featuring 19 large and small islands that create a magnificent and picturesque landscape. The area also preserves many unique cultural heritage values closely related to the marine and island environment.

Meet the Aussie entrepreneurs living and working in Bali

The allure of Bali has long captivated Aussie travellers since the 1960s and it shows no signs of slowing down, with the Indonesian island welcoming a record 1.2 million Australian visitors and holiday makers to its shores in 2023.

But for some, like chef and restaurateur Ben Cross, Bali is more than simply an idyllic holiday destination or digital nomad stint – it’s home.

Back in 2007, on his way to open a restaurant in Barcelona, Mr. Cross made a stopover in Bali and fell in love with the island’s unique culture.

“Balinese people are so kind and welcoming and I think that’s what makes it such a special place,” Mr. Cross told “When I hopped off the plane that first time I was immediately greeted with a smile – it’s all very genuine.”
