Located in the south-central province of Binh Thuan, Phan Thiet city has devised a plan which aims to turn the locality into a national tourism and marine sport centre by 2025.
The city plans to develop its tourism industry in association with marine sports to cater to the taste of both domestic and foreign tourists.
Most notably, Hon Rom - Mui Ne and Ham Tien tourist sites will develop various activities for guests to enjoy, including paragliding, kiteboarding, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, sand-skiing, cycling, and cross-country running.
Furthermore, the Doi Duong - Thuong Chanh beach resort will be the location in which to organise games such as beach volleyball, beach soccer, beach handball, cross-country running, and marathon
Phan Thiet city will be regularly organising international sports tournaments involving kitesurfing, windsurfing, yachting, and golfing, as well as a hot air balloon festival.
The municipal administration will co-ordinate efforts with the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in order to design unique marine sports products that can meet the various interests of tourists. This in turn will boost the image of Phan Thiet tourism to international friends and potential guests.
