After the launch of the movie named “Yellow Flowers on Green Grass” by Victor Vu in 2015, Phu Yen, the center coastal province has drawn more visitors.
The number of holiday-maker has dramatically risen during the last 3 years, especially in special occasions like the Reunification Day (30/4) and the Labour Day (1/5). Almost all the rooms in hotels surrounding was fully occupied in that time.
Considered one of the most charming provinces in Vietnam, Phu Yen has about 190 kilometer of coastline border with spectacular mountain ranges and dotted with beautiful bays, lagoons, reefs and cliffs.
Break of day
If you’re a trekking lover, Mui Dien (Dai Lanh) light house is a must-go place, offering a breath-taking seascape within the sunrise. Despite time-taking and energy-consuming activity, but it’s absolutely worth a try; you will not be disappointed. Standing on the top of Sunrise Cape watching the sun gradually rising over the horizon is the greatest privilege ever. Just take a deep breath and indulge yourself into the charming beauty of nature, you will find never is life never more beautiful than that at that time.
This lighthouse was constructed in 1890 by French, damaged seriously within the war and re-built in 1995. Therefore, it is one of eight lighthouses aging over 100 years in Vietnam. It rises 110m above the sea level and measures 26.5m and assists in orienting ships passing nearby the Ro Bay (Vung Ro).
A lot of young people arrive at the light house late at night and wait for the sunrise.
“We camped here last night,” said 20-year-old Phan Tiến Hải from HCM City, “Listening to soothing waves under the high cliffs, looking up the sky with so many stars and the light from the light house is a precious experience.”
I can see the happiness in the eyes of Hải and His friends. They were cheerful in red T-shirts with a yellow star in the middle, joyfully taking photos of themselves in the early sunlight – with their hands on their chests.
I felt moved by their patriotism – the same feeling I experienced when I put my hand on my heart under the national flag at Lũng Cú in northern Hà Giang or at Cà Mau, the southernmost point of the country.
Down at the foot of Đại Lãnh Cape, Môn Beach has long white smooth beaches and smooth waves throughout the year. At the southern end of the beach, there is a fresh water stream running down from the mountain.
The 400-metre-long beach is bordered by Mũi Nạy (Nạy Cape) in the north and Mũi Điện (Điện Cape) in the south. The beach was recognised as a national landscape in 2008.
Within 5km from the cape, there are three national-level sites, including Môn Beach-Mũi Điện, Đá Bia Mountain and Vũng Rô. — VNS
