PHAN THIET

Mui Ne, an attractive tourist site
(Binh Thuan Province)

Mui Ne is located 24 km north-east of the town of Phan Thiet. It is a fishing village as well as a familiar tourism area in Binh Thuan Province.
It is found on Highway No. 706, and features sweeping sand dunes and beautiful rows of palm trees. The beach is shallow and sloped, the water is clean and blue and the sun rarely hides behind clouds.
There are desolate and primeval beaches that have never witnessed human exploitation as well as imposing landscapes. There is also Doi Cat (Sand Hill), which has long been a creative subject of artistic photographs and paintings. Besides beaches and sand dunes, there are also beautiful landscapes such as Suoi Tien (Fairy Spring), the Ong Hoang Building and the Poshanu Cham Tower.

Mui Ne has long been considered the “Hawaii” of Vietnam. It boasts shady roads under coconut trees, a beautiful beach and cliffs battered by the waves of the sea. The typical scenery of Mui Ne lies in the moving lines of golden sand caused by the wind and when they are seen from afar they look like moving waves. The scenery looks more fascinating at dawn, when young Cham girls in green dresses go to work. That’s why no photographer fails to visit this ara.
Mui Ne is an ideal place for rest and relaxation. Visitors can certainly enjoy swimming in the blue water of the sea, climbing the sand dunes or relaxing by a swimming pool. In fact this oasis entertaiment people of all ages, and furthermore, provides an endless inspiration to the artists’ creation.
Co Thach Pagoda is located in Binh Thanh village, Tuy Phong district, in Binh Thuan province, on a 64-m-high mountain, next to Ca Duoc Beach.
It was first a hatch-roof hut set up by venerable Master Bao Tang in the middle of the 19th century. Ho Cong  Diem rebuilt the pagoda more majestically and named it Co Thach. The pagoda, after the unification with Binh Phuoc Pagoda, was again restored and enlarged. It was also renovated many times from 1956 to 1964.
