South Central Coastal Area Longs For Visitors

The National Tourism Year 2011 will take place in many localities in the south central coastal region. On this occasion, Saigon-Phu Yen Tourism Joint Stock Company introduces many events to attract tourists.

The National Tourism Year in south central coastal region, Phu Yen 2011, is expected to go with more than 30 cultural, sport and tourist events of national and international levels.

The event, hosted by Phu Yen Province together with other localities in the central region – Danang, Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh, Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan, aims to mark the 400 years of its establishment and development.

Throughout this year, south central coastal provinces, especially Phu Yen, will hold a series of activities for the National Tourism Year. The key of them are the sea and island tourism, meeting and parade to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Phu Yen on April 1, international seminar on “Cultural legacies in Vietnam’s south central region” on April 2 and 3, and the cultural exchange night between Vietnam and South Korea and some other countries on April 3.

Phu Yen has a 189-kilometer coastline with sceneries of wild beauty such as Cu Mong and O Loan lagoons, Vung Ro and Xuan Dai bays, and Dai Lanh Cape. In particular, this province has Da Dia Rock as the country’s exclusive scenic spot and more than 10 desolate, beautiful beaches.

Phu Yen is also a land with a cultural tradition and many historical events. The inhabitation of various ethnic groups creates an abundant folk culture. Visitors to the province will enjoy the sounds of Tuy An District’s rock music instrument, attend fishermen’s festivals, or festivals of ethnic communities with people playing gongs around a big fire.
