What to see in Phu Yen Province, Vietnam
Located near Da Rang river, Nhan Tower was built around 11th -12th century by the people of Champa and is one of Tuy Hoa province’s notable scenery. You can see its majestic top standing between the forest and the gently flowing river. With its unique design, Nhan Tower has been attracting many tourists to come and enjoy.
Legend has it that the tower was built in the direction of the sun, which symbolizes life, proliferation and development. It has a quadrilateral shape with 4 storeys and is about 23.5 meters in height. The more you climb, the more the tower seems to shrink. While exploring the tower, tourists can also see the mini-sized Tuy Hoa city from its top.

Wave blocking rocks in Ro village
If you love being “checked in” in stunning places or want to take amazing photos, you can try visiting the wave blocking rocks in Ro village (Phu Dong Ward, Tuy Hoa City).
These concrete piles of rocks were once used for blocking the waves and preventing the landslide during stormy days. As the time passes, the moss began to gather around the edges of the rocks and turned them into a whole new look. Now, the rocks became popular to the tourists in general and teenagers in particular.
