Nha Trang Bay is a famous tourism area Nguyen Van Chi, former chair of the Khanh Hoa provincial People’s Committee, said: “The idea of encroaching on Nha Trang sea and developing construction works is unfeasible, because they will harm the national heritage.” However, several such projects have been proposed.

VietNamNet Bridge – The Nha Trang bay now has to receive the untreated waster discharged from sewers without treatment every day. Scientists have warned about the biological imbalance at the bay.

A project to elongate Tran Phu Road (now called Pham Van Dong Street), which runs along Bai Tien Beach, kicked off in 1999 to spur Nha Trang's tourism industry. When the road was finished later that year, licenses began being granted to developers, who had long been waiting to acquire the beach's "golden" land plots. RELATED CONTENT Vietnam hotel digs up beach to facilitate swimming Fences were quickly erected around the new projects, right on the beach. In the decade after Nha Trang's renovated beachside boulevard opened to traffic, long lines of trucks carrying rocks and soil became a common sight.

The pollution of Vietnam's Nha Trang Bay has created a seriously risky situation, a local official said Tuesday. Truong Kinh, director of the Nha Trang Bay Marine Protected Area's management board, quoted a recent survey as saying that risks like the excessive concentration of hydrocarbons and irons, along with microorganism contamination have created ideal conditions for the propogation of harmful bacteria and algae. This will finally throw off the ecological balance of the beautiful bay, Kinh stressed. The latest survey was conducted by the management board in collaboration with the Institute of Oceanography at 13 locations in the bay in April and November last year. Researchers sampled sediment, water and plant materials. According to Kinh, the pollution mainly comes from the wastewater of households and factories. Seaside and island public works projects have are also contributed to the pollution, he added. What's more, none of the bay's 160 tourist boats are equipped … [Read more...] about Nha Trang Bay suffers from pollution
