Pham Tien Dung, vice chairman of Hanoi UNESCO Travel Club, said Binh Thuan is suitable to the needs of travelers coming from the north, with Mui Ne, in particular, boasting a variety of spiritual tourism destinations, beautiful beaches, and unique sites such as Bau Trang sandhill, Ta Cu cable car, and Phu Quy island, as part of a high-class resort system.
