About Phu Yen

Phu Yen province plays second fiddle to Khanh Hoa to the south, which has the tourist magnet Nha Trang as its main draw. What many people don’t realise, however, is that this little district is home to 189 km of coastline and a number of beautiful, deserted beaches. And the best places to stay in Phu Yen are perfect destinations if you're looking for a Vietnamese beach break without the crowds.

Very little infrastructure exists, and the locals still make their living primarily off the sea. The fish praying festival, usually in March (though it depends on the lunar cycle), is the main annual event - a three day marathon of feasting and prayer to the sea Gods for a safe and profitable catch. In the heavily-forested interior of the province many villages specialise in weaving and pottery.
