Luxury and boutique hotels in Phu Yen province
Full of edenic enclaves, James Bond-worthy bays and dramatic hilltops, peaceful Phu Yen province on Vietnam’s south-central coast has an untouched landscape that’s prime for both sea- and land-based adventure as well as supreme relaxation. It’s home to Gahn da Dia Reef, a rock formation that closely resembles Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway in all but climate (so leave your woollens at home) and the 12th century Nhan Tower, a temple of the indigenous Champa people.
When to go
The best weather is to be found from January to June – heavy rains can put a damper on the party from October to December.
PlanesFirst, you’ll need to fly into Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Da Nang and then take a domestic flight to either Phu Cat (also known as Quy Nhon) or Tuy Hoa airport.
AutomobilesDriving in this remote region is far more trouble than it’s worth – you’ll need a special permit for a start. If you want to explore, it’s best to use taxis or hire a driver.
