The Phu Yen region was a highlight for me. I'd not heard of it before a few of my Vietnamese friends recommended it to me.
We stayed in the main city of Tuy Hòa. One of my friends from Saigon put me in contact with two local girls who guided my friend and I around for a few days. They told us that they only see about one foreigner every month in the city. There was some fantastic food and lots of day trips to some beautiful sights.
We got up in the middle of the night and drive south to the most eastern point of Vietnam to watch the sunrise. It was totally worth it!
Khách Sạn Việt Hương
Nice simple hotel with A/C, fridge, etc. We got a twin room for 180,000d.
