I read somewhere recently that opening the airport in Phan Thiet is back in the works. Does anyone have more information on this?
My farm is 4 kilometers from the airport and I have seen no construction or activity since the inauguration ceremony that I attended a year and a half ago. One of the military guys in charge spends his days playing chess with members of my family.
What you probably heard was the report of the local people's committee annual meeting wherein they promised to begin construction. I wrote an article for city pass last year which detailed all of the projects the people's committee promised to work on the year before. Nothing had been done with any of the projects after 12 months.Edited: 02 August 2017, 11:09
Probably a good thing, an airport would ruin Mui Ne I reckon
As many things here in Vietnam it is still on the ' table " Just looking for investors ?
Do you really, I mean really think that place needs more tourists? Seriously, I can't think of a single place in Vietnam that the tourists themselves would like to be populated by even more tourists. All the "timeless charm" is by and large gone already.
Yep, nothing like going to a place that is filled with people just like you.
Might as well just stay home. :-(
Yes expat17 I know what you are saying. I am thinking about moving to Phan Thiet and it is a tough call. The people who have businesses there want more tourist and the foreign folks who live there want fewer. I was in Nha Trang in 1990 and it was awesome. I went back in February this year and I don't think I will be going back. Progress is a drag but may be impossible to stop. I watched Thailand fall.
Reminds me of a cartoon I saw a long time ago. At the zoo and this guy with a kid on his shoulders looking through the bars at a guy with a kid on his shoulders. La Vida Loca for sure
