Phu Yen – A culture-tourism week kicked off in the south central province of Phu Yen on April 1 night, expected to recover and spur local tourism.
The programme is
organised by the provincial People’s Committee to celebrate 412 years of Phu
Yen’s formation and development (1611-2023) and 48 years of its liberation
(April 1, 1975).
There will be a
festival for music bands and art troupes in and outside the province, a cuisine fair and art
performances within the framework of the week, to last until April 7.
In his opening
remarks, deputy head of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism Nguyen
Le Phuc said the programme demonstrates the local tourism sector’s efforts in
promoting its image and raising its tourism values.
Lying on the south
central coast of Vietnam, Phu Yen is endowed by nature with a peaceful
and romantic environment that has attracted many visitors.
Phu Yen reminds many
visitors of Ghenh Da Dia, overlapped rocky plates in An Ninh Dong Commune of
Tuy An District. It is truly a strange geological scene and said to be
second-to-none in Vietnam. Seen from afar, it is close to the coast and always
splashed by sea waves, the rocky columns look like a huge beehive, built with
many rocky plates of different shapes and sizes and interlocked in layers.
Meanwhile, O Loan
Lagoon, also in Tuy An district and a national-level beauty-spot, attracts
visitors due to its romantic feel. Seen from above, the lake looks like a big
bird ready to fly to the sky with its huge wings. There are lots of special
aquatic products living in the lake, of which the O Loan blood cockles are
particularly well known in the region.
Built near the
peaceful Ba River, the Mang Lang Temple with its nearly 120 year-old history,
has preserved a national precious item, the Cathechismvs book, the first
national language printed book of the Vietnamese made by Priest Alexandre de
Rhodesin 1651 in Rome.
Going southwards, the
Vung Ro Bay in Hoa Xuan Nam Commune of Dong Hoa district has deep blue water.
The bay is surrounded by the Ca Pass, Da Bia Mountain and Hon Ba Mountain. Visitors
can take tours to see the beauty of the ocean or climb Da Bia Mountain always
covered in white mist.
Not too far from Vung
Ro Bay is Dai Lanh Cape, the easternmost pole of the country’s mainland where
the first rays of the dawn comes to the S-shaped country of Vietnam.
With its huge sea
potential and natural beauty-spots that have been depicted in many poems, songs
and movies, Phu Yen province has plenty of opportunities for further
