Phan Thiet is a relaxed port city with plenty of natural beauty to keep tourists occupied. The city is teeming with luxury resorts, golf courses, and Champa ruins.
The Kingdom of Champa ruled from the 7th to 17th centuries, leaving a thousand years' worth of Hindu-like spires, stone structures, and pagodas such as the famous Linh Long Pagoda
The port town is ideal for a day visit, but there's plenty to keep tourists here overnight. The best accommodations can be found at beaches like Doi Duong
and Mue Ne where resorts welcome weekenders from Ho Chi Minh City on a regular basis.
