A series of events will be held to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the re-establishment of the south-central province of Binh Thuan, and to help achieve the province’s plan of welcoming 4.5 million visitors this year.

This year the province’s tourism sector is expected to see miraculous growth thanks to a multitude of international quality hospitality projects developed by giant developers including NovaWorld.

Binh Thuan started to develop tourism from scratch after its re-establishment in 1992.

According to its deputy chairman, Nguyen Minh, it has now become a major destination for both domestic and overseas tourists with its many offerings such as leisure tourism, sightseeing, tourism combined with sports, religious tourism, and visits to islands.

As of July this year Binh Thuan had 382 tourism projects (of which 188 are open to visitors) on a total of 6,3000 ha with a total registered capital of VND70 trillion.

The province, especially Phan Thiet city, has been recognised as a national tourism area by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, which has made it an international tourism brand.

According to experts' forecasts, when Phan Thiet airport opens, Binh Thuan tourism will achieve its big goals and repeat the feat of Phu Quoc seven years ago.


Binh Thuan has become a key national tourism hub with a diverse range of products.

It is estimated that 2.9 million tourists visited the province in the first seven months of 2022, an over 67 per cent year-on-year increase.

Tourism revenues were an estimated VND5.7 trillion, nearly 39 per cent higher.

It is also notable that well-planned and developed hospitality projects have pushed the market upward.

Of the projects, NovaWorld Phan Thiet has strongly impressed investors and tourists thanks to its ecosystem comprising scores of international standard amenities including sports, entertainment and shopping complexes.
