If you walk out the front entrance of the palatial, Las Vegas-scaled Sunrise Nha Trang hotel, where I’m staying, and cross the main boulevard (Tran Phu) and step down to the beach, you’re reminded of Cannes. A lot. Tran Phu has the same pine trees and middle-strip divider with plants and flowers that grow along the Blvd. de la Croisette. The same crescent-shaped beach, same calm waters, same green hills and islands and peaks in the distance. The main difference is that the swanky hotels are grander and taller than the ones in Cannes. Plus Nha Trang has no old town or Palais du Festival, but that aside the resemblance is striking.
