Phan Thiet: vacations, maps, visas, tours, resorts, hotels, and reviews
Phan Thiet is a rather young, but rapidly gaining popularity Vietnamese resort. It stretches for 40 kilometers along the coastline of the South China Sea and includes not only the city, but also a couple of other neighborhoods and villages to the east and west of the coast.
The greatest number of hotels, restaurants and other tourist components are located just on the coast. Here you will find car and bike rentals, surfboards and much more. There are almost no sights in the central part of the city, the only thing that can interest the curious visitors of the city is a museum, a couple of temples, a market and a crocodile nursery. However, temples and mosques - this is not the main pride of Phan Thiet, because come here for something else entirely.
When the windy season starts, Phan Thiet is a busy place for tourists who come here for active sports. It's equally good to relax under the warm sun and catch a wave by windsurfing or wakeboarding. If you're not a fan of that kind of pastime, another trump up your sleeve in this Vietnamese town is sure to blow you away. The cuisine in Phan Thiet is not only exquisite and exotic, but also has insane flavors that are almost nowhere to be found even in all of Vietnam.
