In addition to its world-renowned ancient town of Hoi An, Quang Nam Province in central Vietnam has more to offer to visitors.

“Currently, Quang Nam authorities and businesses are investing in a lot of events, tour programs, and entertainment spots to expand local tourism spaces to meet all the needs of visitors,” said Nguyen Thanh Hong, director of the Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism of Quang Nam Province.

According to Hong, the province boasts many low-cost, beautiful, and impressive places for Vietnamese tourists.

Hong’s comment was made after many Vietnamese tourists complained about the hefty prices and the lack of activities in Hoi An City during their Reunification Day holiday in late April.

Hong noted that while Quang Nam boasts two globally renowned attractions in Hoi An and My Son Sanctuary, these destinations appear to cater more to the needs of international visitors, leaving domestic tourists with unmet priorities that Hoi An and My Son do not currently address.

Therefore, Quang Nam has invested in more and more attractions near Hoi An and My Son in the hope of satisfying the demands of domestic tourists.

Among the places to visit in Quang Nam, Cham Islands should not be missed. 

Only 20 minutes by speedboat from Hoi An, the islands now welcome an average of 2,000-3,000 visitors a day.

Tourists can ride motorbikes around the islands and admire the blue sea on one side and the forest on the other.

Cham Islands are renowned not only for their sea walking tours but also for the golden sand beaches lining the foothills of the mountains.

The islands offer delectable seafood that further enhances the visitor experience.

Another enticing destination to explore in Quang Nam is the VinWonders South Hoi An tourism complex, offering a diverse array of activities ranging from culinary experiences to games, catering to all tourist preferences and needs.

Next is Tam Thanh Beach in Tam Ky City, about 50km from Hoi An City. 

In recent years, Tam Thanh Commune has drawn visitors from across Vietnam thanks to its beautiful beach, seafood, and Tam Thanh Village, which is filled with murals. 

A weekly ethnic market in Nam Giang District, which is around 100km from Hoi An, is another attraction of Quang Nam.

The market showcases a rich array of local products, delicacies, and cultural treasures embodying the essence of the Co Tu people. 

After visiting the market, tourists can also take a 40km drive to Tay Giang District where they can see the Co Tu village nestled next to the forest.

Quang Nam introduces an exciting new tourism experience: a four-to-eight-hour trekking adventure through the Tay Giang forest to the summit of K'Lang Mountain.

Here, visitors are rewarded with breathtaking views of rhododendron forests, showcasing the region's natural beauty.

In addition, a market selling Vietnamese ginseng (Panax vietnamensis) in Nam Tra My District has been developed to serve tourists.

On the over-160km route from Hoi An to Nam Tra My, tourists can stop halfway to visit the Loc Yen ancient village in Tien Phuoc District where they can admire the peaceful village houses and terraced fields.
