Are you after a city that is on the beach with crystal clear water, insane infrastructure great food awesome party in tropical vibes. All year long, let me introduce you to the track Vietnam.
I’m going to explain to you into detail how my lifestyle is here in Nha Trang, my expenses and why I consider it to be one of the top undiscovered locations for digital nomads. This is something Nha Trang has given me the best of a lifestyle.
The Cost of Eating Out
I have never in my life wanted to be outside, work out and live a healthier lifestyle like I have here in Nha Trang. Having beautiful calm beaches at your doorstep, it’s priceless. Not to mention all the outdoor workout
Areas with amazing scenery, the culture of the people, and the all the round vibes in this city. I have really fallen in love with. The beautiful thing about Nha Trang is that everything is within the beach and city centre. There are tons of food markets around with fresh vegetables, meat fruits and everything you might need to eat healthy and fresh.
Price wise, it’s about the same as any other city. You just need to look around bargain and find the vendor that can offer you the best price groceries per week for me can be between 500k to 600k a week, so around 2.4 million a month. But this is eating very good I don’t limit myself and my diet consists of a lot of vegetables fruits and seafood, which Nha Trang has a ton of, but if I’m not cooking at home I usually go out to eat maybe three or four times a week. And let me tell you, the restaurants and food here in Nha Trang are magnificent. The variety available at your doorstep is incredible ,per week, I would say I spend around 600k going out to eat.
Cost of Housing
Here in Nha Trang I managed to get a 4.5 million furniture to the apartment five-minute walk from the beach. It was spacious comfortable, clean and included Wi-Fi and weekly cleaning, electricity and water was separate that was around 1 million. But you can manage to lower this if you don’t keep your air conditioner on at all times.
Cost of Drinks
The infrastructure of NHA trang is also something that really surprised me when I arrived. It seems to be more of a modern city with the touch of Russians inheritance. Everything is very colourful, clean and organized. I personally travel around on my skateboard and the pavements and roads here are very smooth, compared to other locations I’ve visited in Vietnam. but one of my favourite things about Nha Trang is the cafés, restaurants and bars that are on the beach. I’ve never seen like it. It gives you this feeling of tropical holiday vibes
that does not get old. It’s extremely beautiful and a great spot to just sit down, open your laptop and work. Also, street juices here in Nha Trang are epic. For only 10 to 15k you can have one of the best fruit juices you will ever have with the menu of over 40 options from fruits to choose from.
I’ve never had so much fun and seriously every time, I go to the clubs here it feels like a festival. As i mentioned something i didn’t like about Da Nang is that the beach and city are separate as in here the clubs and bars are all on the beach, some places I recommend are skylights with the parties on the rooftop, sailing club the parties on the beach, sea club it’s also next to the beach, and having a club. All of them are epic, some are free some you have to pay an entry, but definitely worth it. Drinks here are expensive, for example a beer can be between 70 decay 200k, so pre-drinking is definitely recommended. On a normal night I usually have a few drinks before and then three or four at the club, spending around 500k on a good night. But definitely can be more if you have some shisha or balloons.
A big part of my daily routine is exercise, here in the trend for some reason i have the urge to go out and keep active consistently. The gym I go to is called Olympic Nha Trang here in the city centre, it’s only 700 000 for the month, and it’s a really awesome gym with any single type of equipment you can think of. But if you’re not a gym person, no problem. You can go to all the various outdoor workout areas. Nha Trang has to offer for free that are right in front of the beach and are spectacular.
In conclusion, my monthly expenses are for accommodation 4.5 million a month. Another 5 million for food and another 2 million on entertainment like events party or alcohol. That’s about 500 USD a month to live a very comfortable and relaxing lifestyle as you can see, Nha Trang has really surprised me, and it’s a place I wouldn’t mind staying in for a few months or come back to as a home base.
