Many tourists still swim at beaches in the southern central city of Nha Trang despite the ban due to high waves.
Over the past two days, beaches in Nha Trang have seen waves up to 2-3 metres high. On Thursday, rescue staff asked travellers not to swim, but many ignored them.
Despite the ban sign being displayed, lots of people have flocked to Pham Van Dong and Tran Phu beaches despite unfavourable weather condition.
Some years ago, a person drowned on a Nha Trang beach while swimming in high waves.
