Hang Rai: a pristine hideaway on the coast of Vietnam

The rock formations and fossilized coral reefs of Hang Rai are a must for visitors to the coastal city of Phan Rang in Ninh Thuan province. 

Hang Rai is located inside Vinh Hy Bay, only about 40 kilometers from Phan Rang and accessible by car or motorbike. Located on the main North-South railway line, Phan Rang shares with the more famous Nha Trang the Cam Ranh International Airport. If your journey starts in Nha Trang, a bus to Phan Rang will serve you well. Vinh Hy offers a complete spectrum of accomodation, ranging from the luxury Amanoi Resort to $15 rooms or even cheaper at local hostels.

The range of activities on offer includes swimming, fishing and rock climbing.
