The city of Phan Thiet itself boasts colonial style architecture and features several attractions for visitors to explore, and about 40 minutes away is the Ta Ku Mountain which also features some very interesting religious sights. A small distance off Phan Thiet are the famous and very popular Sand Dunes, and to the east of the city are some of the most beautiful and exquisite beaches.
The town of Phat Thiet is an attraction of its own, especially for the history lover. The colonial villas that line the streets add to the vividness of the town and those keen on exploring the history of the town as well as the country the Ong Pagoda and the Ho Chi Minh Museum are must visits.
To indulge in the natural heritage of the area trek up the Ta Ku Mountain. A 40 minute drive from the town and a five hour trek leads you to some of the most breathtaking views of the area. Of course it is a full day trip but the experience proves to be well worth your time. The summit provides the ideal setting for a picnic lunch and relaxation. And whilst you are at that altitude another interesting sight to visit is the Reclining Sakyamuni Buddha. Eleven metres high and forty nine metres long this serene statue of Lord Buddha is surrounded by trees adding to the wonderful calmness it portrays.
Beach lovers can explore the Bai Rang, which is about 15 kilometres north of the town, and the amazing Mui Ne Sand Dunes, which is described as a masterpiece of Nature and which is located about 12 miles east of Phan Thiet town. The beaches also feature attractions such as Suoi Tien, also known as the ‘Celestial Stream’, and the Da Ong Dia also known as the ‘boulders of the Earth God’.
Visitors to this region of Vietnam can easily find a range of accommodation options and being tourist oriented any Vietnam hotel, villa or guest house promises its guests modern amenities and facilities. For those keen on being located close to the amazing beach area a resort in Mui Ne is ideal. And for visitors wanting it all, the luxury, the setting, and warm Vietnamese hospitality, Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa features the perfect getaway.
