    Nha Trang Observatory added to tours

    The south-central province of Khanh Hoa has put Nha Trang Observatory on to the itinerary of Nha Trang city tours as a new destination for tourists to explore. Built in 2014, Vietnam’s first observatory is located on Hon Chong Island. Costing some VND60 billion ($2.6 million), it has a cylindrical shape with five floors, including a 60-seat cosmic projection room and a 200 sq m exhibition room. On the top floor is a 0.5-metre-diameter telescope designed and produced by Italy’s Marcon. The telescope is equipped with cameras and high-resolution spectrum analysers that allow visitors to observe the stars. The cosmic projection room is designed like a movie theatre with a dome screen, providing knowledge about astronomy and astronomical phenomena, such as the change in the position of celestial bodies in the sky and eclipses, through the use of visual effects, helping people satisfy their curiosity, especially children, about space and the universe.

    Charity Cycle Adventure

    Riding Route: Dalat - Nha Trang

    The annual charity event for Saigon Children’s Charity welcomes riders to participate in an adventurous three-day ride through Vietnam’s central highlands to the coast. Riders this year will be able to enjoy a three-day, fully-supported and guided ride through the valleys and forested highlands of Dalat before heading down to the world-famous beach of Nha Trang. Winding their way through the tree-lined roads of Dalat, formerly a resort destination for French colonialists, riders will enjoy picturesque scenery as they pass small villages and farms. After two days of exploring valleys and trails in fresh mountain air, riders begin their descent down to the coast.

    The event aims to raise funds to help programs assisting disadvantaged children. Over the last seven years, the annual Charity Cycle Adventure has welcomed enthusiastic cyclists from all over the world, who have ridden over 2000 km in total and raised over $280,000 for disadvantaged children.

    Registration fee: $700 (flights, food and accommodation, cycling shirt, guides, and support vehicles). Minimum funds raised to support programs: $500. Contact Mr David Appleton (Davidappleton@gmail.com or 0903 014 488) or Ms Van (van@saigonchildren.com).
