Introducing Ninh Chu Beach
Southeast of Phan Rang, Ninh Chu Beach is increasingly popular with Vietnamese tourists. Apart from the occasional blight of litter, the 10km-long beach is attractive and relatively empty on a weekday. It makes a quieter alternative to Phan Rang as a base for visiting the Cham ruins.
A bizarre local attraction is the Hoan Cau Resort, where Disneyland meets Vietnamese folklore. Hilarious plaster statues adorn the grounds and rooms are shaped like tree stumps. A brief visit is definitely more enjoyable than staying in the kitsch, fake treehouse style bungalows. Basically, it looks like the local party hacks enjoyed a visit to Dalat’s Crazy House so much that they brought the blueprint back with them and built a resort.
