    Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has recently agreed with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s proposal to include south-central Phu Yen province in a tourism infrastructure development project being funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in the expectation that tourism will contribute at least 10% to GDP.

    Phu Yen has potential for the development of improved infrastructure and tourism could become a spearhead economic sector in the future. The province must build a strong brand name and push ahead with institutional reform and ensure environmental hygiene. Travel companies must develop human resources and increase regional connectivity. Local authorities need to focus on evaluating the environmental impacts and protecting the local habitat, especially in coastal, residential and industrial areas. Phu Yen remains behind other localities nationwide due to its low and unsustainable economic growth and shortcomings in its industrial economy.

    A 1.15-km park running along the beach of south-central Phu Yen province is expected to give the emerging tourist destination a boost upon completion. The park will cover 6 ha along Doc Lap Street in Tuy Hoa city, the provincial capital, with the main attraction being three pedestrian paths and a 4,500 sq m playground paved with granite and basalt. The VND68.5 billion ($3.06 million) park will also feature sculptures and artistic lighting, as well as a parking lot.

    Phu Yen, the easternmost province on Vietnam’s mainland, emerged as a new tourist destination among local people with the release of the movie ‘Toi Thay Hoa Vang Tren Co Xanh’ (Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass) in 2015. It boasts beautiful beaches and Ghenh Da Dia, which has unique basalt columns only found in four places in the world: Phu Yen, Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, Los Órganos in Spain, and Fingal in Scotland.
