Tuy Hoa is the capital of beautiful Phu Yen province. 

Flanked by the highway, the ocean and the Da Rang River, Tuy Hoa is a sleepy and nondescript city that does not see many tourists. This quiet Vietnamese city is the perfect place to relax, catch some waves or intent with friendly locals who are more than welcoming of tourists. The miles and miles of undeveloped beach make you feel as though you've left the city behind, and moved away to a quieter atmosphere.

Tuy Hoa is not 'touristy' in the broad sense. In fact, you may find yourself to be the only foreign tourist, but that in itself makes Tuy Hoa memorable.

Best time to visit

From February to June the weather is very pleasant, with warm temperatures and lower humidity. In the height of summer, during July and August, the temperatures can soar. From September to December, keep an eye on the forecast as storms can roll in off the ocean during this time.

The annual Cau Ngu, or fish praying festival, is held in April. This major event is full of colourful costumes and interesting rituals and it is now aligned with the province’s new seafood festival, making it a good time to visit.

Tuy Hoa’s current weather and 7-day forecast


Here are the top 6 tourist attractions to see in Tuy Hoa:

Thap Nhan

The unique shape of Nhan Tower, coupled with the fact that it is one of the last remaining pieces of Cham Architecture makes its invaluable, historically.

Located on the Northern Bank of the Da Rang River, the Nhan Tower, locally called Thap Nhan, is an 11th century worship location of the Cham dynasty. The tower is 20 meters high and each of the side towers are 11 meters high on both sides. The top of the tower is a combination of a pyramid and a lingam, a style characteristic to the Cham Dynasty. The tower was ruined during the French rule but was rebuilt by the Diem Dynasty. Today, it stands as a testament to Cham architecture.

Nui Chop Chai

Nui Chop Chai is the iconic lone, cone-shaped hill, visible throughout Tuy Hoa from far and near, located in the midst of plains.

Chop Chai Mountains is not for the faint-hearted. Firstly, you aren't allowed to take pictures on the peak. Secondly, the long winding road is accessible by motorbike and is navigable by only the most skilled riders. The overall experience makes it highly daunting, but the view at the top is worth it. The endless obstructed expanse of plains will leave you breathless. On the other side, you can see the crescent-shaped beach, the golden sands and the delta and the river.
The best time to visit the Chop Chai Mountains is between Spring and Summer.

Nui Da Bia

Da Bia mountain is a 706 meter high hill, with a peculiar stone perched on top of it, visible for anyone who gazes upon the mountain. The local name 'Nui Da Bia' translates into Gravestone mountain.

Da Bia is most famous for the gigantic stone located on top of its mountain peak, which was installed by King Le Thanh Tong after a conflict with the neighbouring Cham Kingdom. The peak is an upward 1.5 - 2 hour trek. From the peak, you can get an unobstructed view of the surrounding Vong Ho Bay and the entire district. At the base of the mountain, you can enjoy some exquisite squid hot pot.

Dai Lanh Lighthouse

The Dai Lan lighthouse is one of the best places to marvel at the morning sun bathing the South-Central Coast of Vietnam.

When people travel 40 kilometres from Tuy Hoa city and camp out on the beaches of Dai Lanh Cape all night, just to catch a glimpse of the rising sun over the mountains, you know that that sunrise Is really worth it. The road to the beach is winding and difficult to traverse, however, the pristine and untouched nature of the beach is worth all the toil. The reddish-orange sun rising over the waters confers an ethereal glow on the surroundings and leaves you stunned.
The best time to visit the Dai Lanh Lighthouse is right before sunrise, at around 5:30 AM - 6:00 AM, to position yourself well for sunrise. Spring and early Summer are good seasons to visit the lighthouse.

Ganh Da Dia

Gahn Da Dia is a natural rock reef - a geological wonder of interlocking basalt rocks.

At first glance, Gahn Da Dia looks too bizarre to be natural. Rock columns cover an area 50 metres wide and 200 metres long. They are all different sizes and shapes - some are round, some have sharp angles forming polygons - but all have a smooth, flat top and interlock neatly like a honeycomb. They resemble stone plates, earning it the appropriate name 'the sea cliff of stone plates.' The natural wonder was created when lava suddenly solidified from being hit by cold sea water, simultaneously the thermal contractions caused the molten basalt flows to create polygonal cracks, forming rock columns. It is indeed a spectacular sight to behold.

The best time to visit the Da Dia Reef is in Spring and early Summer.

Mang Lang Church

Mang Lang Church is one of the oldest churches in Vietnam, spanning more than 120 years of age.

Mang Lang is an 200-year old Church, built based on the Gothic Style of architecture, by the French missionary to Vietnam, Father Joseph Lacassange. Native to Andrew of Phu Yen, who was beheaded in 1644, the place not only has enormous historical significance (as Andrew is considered a youth icon), but also has exquisitely detailed architecture and art, and is definitely worth your time.

Vietnam would scrap the Covid-19 testing requirement for all arrivals starting Sunday, May 15th 2022, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has directed.

In a document issued Friday, the Prime Minister requested the Ministry of Health to closely follow the coronavirus situation and provide proper guidance. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs should direct Vietnamese authorities outside the country to inform people who wish to enter Vietnam to follow appropriate disease prevention measures, he said.

The latest decision has been made as the number of Covid-19 infections and deaths drops both in Vietnam and around the world. Several countries have been taking steps to relax coronavirus restrictions, including scrapping testing before entry.

Current policies issued by the health ministry require entrants to have negative results from PCR tests done within the previous 72 hours, or a negative result from a rapid test done within the last 24 hours.

Those who don’t have a negative test result must refrain from making contact with others during the first 24 hours after entry. They will be able to move freely once they test negative after arrival.

Children under two don’t need to be tested.

Vietnam stopped requiring medical declarations from those arriving from abroad starting April 27, and for domestic travel starting April 30.
