Location:  South-east of Nha Trang city, on Mieu Island . Also named Bong Nguyen Island - Island of Immortals Distance from central Nha Trang: 7 kilometers, haft an hour from Cau Da port.

Description: Tri Nguyen Aquarium was built in 1971, a highly inventive work of distinction, by Le Can, a fisherman who was fond of nature very much with goodwill and proud of his homeland. With his own money, he hired local inhabitants to block the sea and build a dam for the construction of a large pond 160m in length and 130m wide.

Detail :Tri Nguyen Aquarium (an aquarium where hundreds of rare oceanic species are fed) is a lake on the sea which people dam up with stone embankment. Hundreds of nice and precious marine creatures are bred in the lake, looking a real marine museum.

 

The pond consists of three compartments, one for breeding savage fishes, one for aquarium fishes, shrimps and turtles of different kinds and many other species of sealife to breed in his aquarium. The aquarium creates a unique world of multifarious aquatic animals, a living museum of the marine life in Nha Trang. This splendid work is highly entertaining, for it has been much visited and lauded by tourists from far and near.

The sea-water has an easy circulation into and out of the pond, for the banks were built of stones which had been so cleverly arranged as to provide sufficient spaces for the water to flow in and out, and thus providing sea conditions quite suitable to the marine animals in the compartments.

 Visitors may take a walk around the lake or seating on the house close to the edge of the water, they can see many kinds of colorful sea-fish that live in the clear blue water of the lake.

In the island also has Bai San Beach, one of the beaches that are attractive to many visitors and many habitants live on island. Their lives connect with mainland by small boats which transport hundred of people daily.
