Hai Hoa beach, Vietnam

People who like to bask in the tropical sun and frolic in warm water by day and then party all night will not want to miss Hai Hoa beach in the northern province of Thanh Hoa’s Tinh Gia town.

A view of Hai Hoa beach in Thanh Hoa province.

Powdery sand and clear water make sunbathing and swimming a pleasure and the two year old facilities here are rather good. Three-star hotels Cao Nguyen and Xanh Ha ACB offer bars, karaoke, sauna massages and swimming pools. Smaller hotels like Dai Duong and Binh Minh are reasonably priced and restaurants here offer clams, oysters, squid and codfish for under VND100,000.

Heading to Thanh Hoa province, tourists will notice Nghi Son Industrial Park which is 25 kilometers from the beach. Attractions near the beach are Hon Me Island to see the lighthouse, Tinh Hai Bastion, Lach Bang Fishing Port, Ba Lang Church, Quang Trung Temple and Truong Lam Grottoes.

Famous destinations in the province include Sam Son Resort with its smooth beaches, emerald waters and view of Truong Le Mountain, the Ho Dynasty Citadel, which was built in block granite and depicts the creativity and industriousness of the working people seven centuries ago, Ba Trieu Temple, Ham Rong bridge and the 16-hectare Ben En National Park with its breathtaking hills, mountains, rivers and lake with 21 islets that resembles Ha Long Bay.

Doc Cuoc Temple, Dao Grotto and Do Mountain are other interesting destinations in the area.

Indigenous specialties such as fried codfish and shrimp make good gifts.
