Phan Thiet Holidays

If you love seafood, you will love Phan Thiet. Teeming with fishing boats, this busy little coastal port town is famous for its nuoc mam (fish sauce). Out of town, go off the beaten track to discover fishing villages where life looks just as it did a century ago. Then try the catch of the day in the thatched-roof restaurants along with a good helping of fresh sea air and ocean views. Phan Thiet is a great beach destination to round off your trip to Vietnam with some rest and relaxation after a tour and lots of sightseeing. Neighbouring Mui Ne is also a popular beach town and well known as a great palace for windsurfing.

  • Golf

    10 miles or so from the main town, Phan Thiet's best beach is the long sandy stretch of Mui Ne Bay, lined by upscale resorts and beach bungalows. This is where the majority of our hotels are located and it's the ideal place for a beach holiday or to relax for a few days after a tour of the country. Enjoy the local restaurants and bars, enjoy a spot of kitesurfing or explore the nearby fishing villages. Also, not far from the beach you'll find the lofty Red Dunes, giving gorgeous views of the area, not to mention the chance to ride down the steep slopes on a sled. Go on, you know you want to.

  • Windsurfing

    Designed by UK golfing legend Nick Faldo, the world-class Ocean Dunes Golf Club is one of Phan Thiet's main attractions. Opened in 1996, the 18-hole, par 72 course is all sea views, sand dunes and palm trees. Faldo has compared it to a Scottish seaside course, but this time in a warm tropical setting. There is also a putting green, driving range and club house with shop and restaurant.

  • Cham Ruins

    Thanks to the steady, strong winds of Mui Ne Bay, Phan Thiet holidays tempt wind and kite surfers from all over the world. If you are a beginner or just want to polish up your skills, you can enjoy lessons with qualified instructors at cheaper rates than most other windsurfing hotspots, and you will meet plenty of fellow windsurf addicts.

    " A really great excursion I recommend is to Fairy Stream, the landscape surrounding the area is very dramatic with colours of red, white, orange and pink. We waded through the stream which took around hour from start to finish, its quite a magical experince and there are stalls along the way if you want to buy a drink or some snacks."
