Ninh Thuan

On Vietnam’s south central coast, between Phan Thiet and Nha Trang, is a province of extraordinary beauty. Lush forests stretch along pristine coastline while sweeping desert landscapes give way to rare geological phenomena. Home to two national parks, much of the arid scenery and desert flora remains untouched. The culture and traditions of ethnic minorities are preserved in small, rural communities and in centuries-old ruins. Ethnic, religious and cultural diversity flourish while strangers still greet each other with smiles.

As southern Vietnam’s poorest and least industrialised region, its unspoilt terrain and cultural history has hardly been a focal point in tourists’ guidebooks. But with recent development, the area around Phan Rang is emerging as an enticing destination, far enough off of the tourist trail to get a welcome respite, yet close enough for easy access.


By meeting the people, exploring the places and experiencing the still undeniable charm of this untainted territory, we uncover the sights, sounds and spirit of the forgotten province, Ninh Thuan.
