* Recently, Phu Yen tourismhas developed quite well. What has the Provincial Tourism Associationcontributed to this encouraging result, sir?

- With the spirit ofinvestment in tourism development becoming the provincial important economicbranch, Phu Yen has organized many meaningful activities such as welcoming thenew year 2018 and the first tourists to Dai Lanh cape; organizing investmentpromotion conferences; meeting and making the dialogue between the ProvincialSteering Committee for Tourism Development and the tourism and serviceenterprises in the area; holding Culture and Tourism Week in 2018...

* Besides the good signals,during the process of development, Phu Yen tourism still has had some"grains" badly affecting the sector. What is your point about this?

- We must franklyacknowledge that, besides the encouraging results in the process of developingtourism, building a prestigious and beautiful brand in the heart of tourists,there have still been some limitations that need to be overcome soon. It issmall accommodation facilities far from the sea. Over the past 5 years, therehas been no more 3-star hotels invested in the coastal areas, so in the peakseason, especially the summer, it is always in the "burning-rooms"condition, which has not been able to attract the large tours. Visitors to PhuYen enjoy beaches for clean water, but the province lacks accommodation andcoastal services, entertainment services, night-tourism market.

* What are the things to dofor Phu Yen tourism to continue developing, sir?

- In order to furtherdevelop and build brand for Phu Yen tourism: "Phu Yen-attractive andfriendly destination", the provincial tourism association recommended the ProvincialPeople's Committee to direct to invest the accommodation and service projects ofTuy Hoa, Tuy An and Song Cau coastal resorts to meet the increasing demand forbeach resorts. The province directed Tuy Hoa city People's Committee tocoordinate with Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism to select places to buildnight-tourism market.
