A central province of Vietnam, Phu Yen is known to have great potentials to develop its tourism thanks to beautiful beaches, bay, lagoon, but Phu Yen has not reached the attention of Vietnamese tour operators and international tourists yet. Phu Yen is about 400km from from Danang and 120km from Nha Trang so if you travel Vietnam by road, one night stay in Phu Yen can be a good idea to explore this picturesque city.
How to get there:
By plane: Phu Yen has Tuy Hoa airport and there are daily flights from Ho Chi Minh city and Hanoi to this airport. Hanoi - Tuy Hoa is 1160km, Ho Chi Minh - Tuy Hoa is 560km.
