One of the less known provinces in Vietnam but always a whirlwind of activity, with stunning tourist sites at every turn and never enough time to discover them all, Phu Yen should be included in the itinerary of your private tour in Vietnam. No matter when you go in a year or even in a day, there is an endless array of things to see and do in the province in South-Central Coast of Vietnam. Some of the gorgeous places for a stellar view are on this list of the top-rated tourist attractions in Phu Yen.
Nhan Tower – A Unique Symbol of Cham’s Architectural Art
Located on the highest terrain on the northern bank of the Da Rang River, Nhan Tower is a must-visit place for those interested in the historic neighborhoods. This classic Phu Yen Province’s attraction gives millions of visitors each year a chance to see the impressive worshiping place of ancient Cham people – the first people to live in this province from the late 11th century to the early 12th century.
Nearly ruined during the French colonial domination and rebuilt by the administration of Diem’s regime at the end of 1960, Nhan Tower, with its harmonious combination of the pyramidal symbol and linga symbol, its quadrilateral shape with four stories, and its pleasing surroundings, is considered as an iconic image of Cham’s architectural art in Phu Yen province or a top tourist attraction in this lovely province.
Ghenh Da Dia – A Site of Impressive Rock Masterpiece
Ghenh Da Dia
A Mother Nature’s gift to Phu Yen Province, the masterpiece of stone of Ghenh Da Dia – The Sea Cliff of Stone Plates in An Ninh Dong Commune, Tuy An District is the top tourist attraction in Phu Yen. Even travelers with their best-unimpressed faces will be surprised by a collection of estimated 35,000 interlocking basalt columns standing in the closed position as if supernaturally placed. Head to the area of about 328 feet wide and 820 feet long for the view you have been wanting. Dark lava columns with flat surfaces differing in a wide variety of shapes and sizes due to thermal contraction effects – polygon, hexagon, pentagon, round, etc, the out-of-this-world cliffs look like a gigantic beehive or a pile of dinner plates.
Mui Dien (Dien Cape) – the First Place to Welcome the Dawn
Where to go in Vietnam for the prettiest sunrises? Look no further than Mui Dien – the first spot to welcome the dawn. Undoubtedly, sunrises are the peak commuting hours. The least-crowded time? No matter when you go, beware of anyone and everyone approaching you as no Vietnam private tour in Phu Yen would be complete without a visit to Dien Cape.
No place gets “Phu Yen tourist attraction” as much as Mui Dien or also known as Dai Lanh Cape – about 22 miles to the southeast of Tuy Hoa City. Part of Truong Son mountain range stretching to the sea, Mui Dien, which was discovered by a French soldier – Varella, is picked out as a should-not-miss spot on their Vietnam private tour. What makes one of two east poles in mainland of Vietnam appealing? It is not only the breathtaking scenery created by its 87-feet-high solar powered lighthouse as well as the clear turquoise water and long white sandy exotic beach but also the natural ecosystem of the mainland – the potential features of culture and tourism. Expect new fun and diverse outdoor activities all day long.
Even though it would take months or even years to see everything in Vietnam, it is always a good idea to enjoy a tailor-made tour in Phu Yen Province in the South Central Coast of Vietnam, starting by swimming in the vast beach or catching snails at Ghenh Da Dia, trekking around or into the hills, or simply by seeing the sites of Nhan Temple – A Unique Symbol of Cham’s Architectural Art, Da Trang Pagoda – A National Historical Relic, Bac Deo Ca Natural Preservation, etc.
