Binh Thuan still one of Vietnam

Binh Thuan still one of Vietnam’s most-attractive destinations

Over the past recent years, the average growth rate of Binh Thuan tourism has posted stable, from about 11 to 12 percent a year (domestic visitors), and 13-15 percent (internationally tourists) and a year-on-year increase of 20 percent of tourism revenues. Binh Thuan is among Vietnam’s top tourist destinations thanks to its favorable weather, long and stunning beaches, friendly locals, safe environment and luxurious resorts, according to Nguyen Van Khoa – Chairman of Binh Thuan Tourism Association. 

The province’s most popular beach is Mui Ne in the coastal city of Phan Thiet, which is set to become the main resort centre of Binh Thuan by 2025.  In recent years, Binh Thuan has made efforts to make tourism a key local industry. The province has added more tourism services in terms of transportation, shopping and underwater sports to serve the increasing demand of holidaymakers. Especially, Phan Thiet airport is expected to be put into operation by 2021, for ease of international tourist arrivals.

Moreover, the province also pays much attention to human resource training to raise the quality of tourism service at a international level. As of now, the province has 468 accommodation facilities, offering more than 14,600 guest rooms, including 129 hotels rated 1 – 5 star. Some 390 tourism projects, worth more than 59 trillion VND, are being operated in the province. These include 23 foreign projects with total investment of 13 trillion VND.

However, the local tourism faces a lot of difficulties in infrastructures and non-skilled humanresources, in which highway and airports have not been completed. It has also ramped up activities to promote local tourist attractions and expand cooperation with other popular destinations in the south central coast and Mekong Delta.

Binh Thuan tourism sector aims to receive about 5.75 million visitors, including 670,000 foreign travelers, and generate 12.85 trillion VND in tourism revenue in 2018.
