Flanked by the highway, the ocean and the Da Rang River, Tuy Hoa is a sleepy and nondescript city that does not see many tourists. This quiet Vietnamese city is the perfect place to relax, catch some waves or intent with friendly locals who are more than welcoming of tourists. The miles and miles of undeveloped beach make you feel as though you've left the city behind, and moved away to a quieter atmosphere.
Tuy Hoa is not 'touristy' in the broad sense. In fact, you may find yourself to be the only foreign tourist, but that in itself makes Tuy Hoa memorable. Amidst the vast plains, the single Chop Chai mountain of Tuy Hoa rises. Chop Chai mountain offers the best view of the city, the river and the surrounding beach. The Nhan Tower is a living testament to the expertise of the Cham Dynasty. This skating tower was once a place of worship but is now in ruins, due to the destruction of the Tower caused during the French conquer of Vietnam. The Da Bia mountain is a tiring but worthy upward trek. The top of the mountain has numerous pagodas. It also has a jagged rock, and because of which it is called Gravestone Mountain. The Dai Lan lighthouse is the perfect place to camp out overnight and watch with bated breaths as the sun rises over the horizon, bathing the area in shades of red, orange and yellow. The Gahn Da Dia is a geological anomaly that will leave you feeling shocked. The Mang Lang Church is an ancient Catholic Church, and it makes for a pleasant visit. Overall, Tuy Hoa is relaxed and a great place to let your hair lose and have some fun.
