Phu Yen is one of the coastal provinces in South Central Viet Nam with more than 100km seaside. It has no place in Vietnam tourism map. Recently, Phu Yen’s becoming well-known thanks to the “Yellow flowers on green grass” movie phenomenon.
(The “Yellow Flowers on Green Grass” is the latest movie of Vietnamese American filmmaker Victor Vu, based on the novel Toi Thay Hoa Vang Tren Co Xanh (I See Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass) by best-selling author Nguyen Nhat Anh), telling the childhood of two brothers in 1980s)
Phu Yen Province also encompasses a diverse landscape of mountains, rivers, lagoons. The provincial capital Tuy Hoa is hardly a pleasure palace, and it’s not set up for western tourists — at all — it’s barely set up for Vietnamese tourists.
Dai Lanh Beach, ten kilometres further south from Tuy Hoa, is not recommended for an overnight, but is a beautiful location nonetheless. Add to that one amazing, deserted beach after another where you’ll find hardly a footprint in the sand.
Bai Mon where is 35km from Tuy Hoa, is one of the most famous beaches in Phu Yen. With the untouched beauty of the clear water and white sand, it’s an ideal place for visitors to relax, go camping, swim, scuba diving, and enjoy fresh seafood.
Ganh Da Dia (Cliff of Stone Plates) is 40 kilometres from vibrant Tuy Hoa city. At around 50m wide and over 200m long, this is an extremely strange natural masterpiece, resembling huge stone blocks fleshed into round and piled neatly and steadily together. The scenery here stays natural with its wild beauty and pure environment.
Vung Ro is used to be an important port of Ho Chi Minh at sea. With 12 small beaches of the different features, Vung Ro is one of the most beautiful bays of the central coastal region, which is full of promises to become a tourist resort attracting tourists from around the world.
At the beginning of 2015, The Vung Ro Petroleum Co. Ltd. ( Vung Ro Petroleum ) and Rose Rock Group, a group specializing in investment management and real estate developer founded by members of billionaire Rockefeller family, has signed a cooperation agreement for the implementation of Tourist complex and Resort at Vung Ro Bay ( Phu Yen province). The two companies announced that the $2.5 billion project would comprise of three parts including The Marina, The Village and Bai Mon Beach, which will all be connected by The Green Thread, a 2.5 kilometre footpath.
In June 2015, the $US1 bilion complex of resort, golf course was kicked off, The high-class tourism complex covers a total area of nearly 360 hectares in the coastal communes of An Chan and An My in Tuy An district, and An Phu in Tuy Hoa city, including a 5- and 6-star hotel complex, a 36-hole golf course, international yacht harbor and many leisure facilities.
Once these projects are completed, it will help maximise Phu Yen’s massive tourist potential.
