About Phu Yen
An often underrated coastal province in central Vietnam, Phu Yen still boasts spectacular unspoilt beaches fringed by verdant hills. Neighbouring Khanh Hoa, home to bustling Nha Trang, draws most of the crowds, making this tranquil region a brilliant choice for those looking to get a little further off the beaten track. Whether you’re hoping for a simple, family-friendy guesthouse or a gorgeous eco-retreat with a strong wellness ethoas, our pick of the best places to stay in Phu Yen has it all.
Although much of the province has seen little development in comparison to Vietnam’s modern commercial hotspots, the city of Tuy Hòa does have quite a buzz. Phu Yen’s capital, Tuy Hòa is a burgeoning coastal metropolis with high-rise hotels, malls and an increasing number of glossy bars and eateries. Set along a striking stretch of golden sand — part of Phu Yen’s 189kms of coastline — the city boasts a well-maintained promenade for leisurely seaside strolls.
Discover the area’s rich heritage by clambering up to the 11th-century Nhan Tower — a red-brick Cham temple — or visiting the mango-framed Da Trang Buddhist Pagoda and the Gothic Mang Lang Church. Stunning natural wonders include the volcanic Da Dia Reef and Dao Lanh Cape, home to the Mui Dien Lighthouse. Day trips to Bai Xep, Xuan Dai Bay and Mai Nha Island also come highly recommended. The annual Cau Ngu Festival, when communities pray for smooth sailing and good fishing, is fascinating. Book your trip well in advance if travelling at this time, as the best places to stay in Phu Yen can fill up fast!
