Welcome to Phan Thiet
Far to the north of Ho Chi Minh City about 200 km, visitors head to charming Mui Ne and Phan Thiet. Before Mui Ne was found, Phan Thiet was a captivating beach town, but the city has been gradually eclipsed by its sibling. Its unspoiled beauty lies in blue crystal clear water and white silky beaches.
The city is also famous for fish sauce, producing 16 to 17 million liters per year. The Ca Ty river flowing through the centre of town creates a small fishing harbor, which is always a chock-a-block with boats, making a fascinating spot for photographers.
Hotel and resort developments have been rising along the coastline, though so far the daily life of the fishing communities is unchanged. Phan Thiet is also an ideal place for golf courses, beautiful pagodas, spectacular red and white sand dunes, and a variety of water sports.
