Ninh Thuan – the land of different experiences


Terrain racing on the sand, kitesurfing, watching the sunset on the camel’s back… are experienced tourism products only in Ninh Thuan.

With a coastline length of up to 105km and famous landmarks such as Vinh Hy Bay, Rai Cave…, Ninh Thuan owns pristine sea bays. As one of the 18 rare riparian water spots in the world, the cold ocean current of Ninh Thuan sea area provides fishermen with fresh and nutritious seafood.

The province also gathered two major national forests, Phuoc Binh and Lord’s Mountain. In particular, Lord Mountain has been recognized by UNESCO as a world biosphere reserve, a suitable destination for tourism to experience nature.

Otter Cave (located south of Vinh Hy Bay) has coral deposits up to 7,000 years old in interesting shapes.

With the sea, the desert of Mui Dinh, forests and the national biosphere reserve, Ninh Thuan has the potential to develop sports tourism on all terrain such as water sports, kitesurfing, climbing, terrain racing on the sand…

Besides, thousand-year-old coral reefs, grape fields in Thai An, An Hoa sheep fields, Ca Na salt fields, and wind fields are local “products” with their own characteristics, motivating visitors to Ninh Thuan.

At the conference on promoting and promoting Ninh Thuan tourism in Ho Chi Minh City on May 15, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pham Trung Luong – former Deputy Director of Institute of Tourism Research, General Department of Tourism said that Ninh Thuan is a green and different destination. Not only have natural advantages, this place is also intoxicated by the distinctive Cham cultural heritage. “Only in Ninh Thuan, visitors will experience the most Cham culture,” said Prof. Dr. Pham Trung Luong.

Ninh Thuan is still different because of the ability to connect the region when it is the center of the “tourist triangle” Khanh Hoa – Lam Dong – Binh Thuan. In order to create momentum for local development, the Government has recently agreed to supplement the planning of Thanh Son military airport into a military airport combined with civil, capable of picking up modern planes to bring visitors to experience the desert region.

With the distinct advantage and extensive promotion, the number of visitors to Ninh Thuan in the period 2015-2020 has increased by 10.8% a year, attracting 2.5 million visitors, of which international visitors reached 200,000, revenue reached 1,500 billion VND, an average increase of 19.7% per year.

That natural potential makes Ninh Thuan attractive to many businesses who come here to invest in developing high quality tourism associated with a variety of types of experiences. The province currently has 57 tourism service projects with a total registered capital of over VND 29,686 billion. In which, 19 projects have been put into operation,contributing to promoting sustainable tourism growth.

Nguyen Duc Chi, Chairman of the Board of Crystal Bay Tourism Group – one of the pioneering enterprises investing in Ninh Thuan with many “all-in-one” destinations, said: “Ninh Thuan alone, not including other projects, only along the 5km belt of Phan Rang coast – Thap Cham, Crystal Bay and partners have built 15,000 international standard rooms.

In October of this year, Crystal Bay Tourism Group received the handover from the general contractor of Delta construction of two hotel buildings in the SunBay Park Hotel & Resort Phan Rang beach resort complex, providing about 2,000 5-star hotel rooms next to Binh Son beach park.

In addition, the 4,500-room Sailing Bay Ninh Khoi beach resort and recreation complex has completed the construction of the foundation of the two buildings. Last February, the nearly 800ha Cap Padaran Mui Dinh project was also started by Crystal Bay Tourism Group in partnership with F.I.T. Group.

Each of Crystal Bay’s projects is expected to be an iconic building with a variety of experiences, from water parks, outdoor theme parks, interactive sea high-tech entertainment, coastal cinema (SunBay Park) to kitesurfing, snow houses (Sailing Bay Ninh Cai), camel riding, watching desert sunsets, sand racing, sand skiing (Cap Padaran Mui Dinh), Outlet Village, Phan Rang Beach Walking Street…

In the future, when recovered by Crystal Bay Tourism Group and partners, Phan Rang – Da Lat sawtooth Railway promises to be an experience tourism corridor connecting Phan Rang – Thap Cham coastal city with Lam Dong plateau, filling the missing experience gap of Khanh Hoa – Lam Dong – Binh Thuan tourism triangle.

According to Mr. Tran Quoc Nam – Chairman of Ninh Thuan Provincial People’s Committee, in the coming time, Ninh Thuan prioritizes the development of 3 specific, novel and unique groups of tourism products to attract visitors such as: tourism combining terrain motor racing on the sand, sea sports such as paragliding, kitesurfing, railway experience tourism; nursing and health care tourism…

“Ninh Thuan tourism will have a breakthrough to attract tourists in HCMC market, neighboring provinces and the Western region. Especially in the coming summer with ‘Safe Travel – A Delightful Experience’. And when thinking about different experience tourism, tourists remember and come right to Ninh Thuan”, Mr. Nam expected.

Along with the emergence of high-end “all-in-one” resort projects, Thanh Son airport, legendary sawtooth railway and the promotion of investment promotion and tourism development cooperation, Ninh Thuan gradually affirmed its international status as a safe and friendly destination.
