New paradise just found
Just a three-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City, the quiet beach resort of Phan Thiet is a perfect change of pace from modern, city life. A decade ago, this small fishing town received few visitors. Today, you will find an impressive range of international-standard accommodation, various water-sports, and a prizewinning seaside golf course: What hasn't changed is the town's sleepy charm.
Visitors can stroll through Phan Thiet's colorful harbors, linger on its long, golden beaches, or explore the nearby 8 th century Cham towers. Just to the east of Phan Thiet lies Cape Mui Ne, a glorious, 21km arc of sand, empty but for towering coconut palms. The palms later give way to a sea of rolling, red sand dunes. Just don't forget your camera: Mui Ne's dazzling blue water, golden sand and red dunes are a photographer's dream.
