• Phan Theit overview
  • Overview

    Phan Thiet, on the South China Sea, is the place for an unhurried holiday. A coastal town with attractive beaches, plenty of bars and restaurants plus a busy fishing harbour, it offers visitors the chance to immerse themselves in local life at a gentle pace.

    One of the liveliest attractions is the Central Market, where stall holders sell fresh fruit and vegetables, seafood and spices. It is a place to pick up Vietnamese delicacies too, such as turmeric noodles and the local speciality ‘nuoc man cham’, a fermented fish sauce. Locals haggle determinedly to get the best prices.

    Phan Thiet makes a great base for exploring this stretch of coast, and there are plenty of places to visit. One is the fascinating Van Thuy Tu Temple, which is devoted to whale worship. Fishing communities in this part of Vietnam have long revered whales, and believe they protect them whilst on the seas. This temple dates back to 1762 and contains various relics – including the skeleton of a whale.
