PHOTOS OF THE WEEK: Bình Thuận Province, Vietnam

I THINK MORE AND MORE VIET NAM IS JUST GETTING DISCOVERED. RECENTLY MSN POSTED THIS BEAUTIFUL PHOTO OF THIS BEACH IN THE BINH THUAN PROVINCE OF VIETNAM. IN TODAY’S PHOTOS OF THE WEEK, WE WANTED TO SHARE MORE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL AREA AND PERHAPS WE CAN ALL LEARN ABOUT THIS BEAUTIFUL NEW TREASURE:

Vietnam’s Bình Thuận Province is renowned for its natural splendor, with sights such as the immense orange sand dunes at Mũi Né, and the windswept beaches of Phan Thiet, the province’s capital. Even the rocks are cool: Here at Co Thach beach the tumble of multihued pebbles and large formations are often referred to as ‘seven-color stones.’ At times, some of those seven colors are obscured by a bright green moss that blankets the beach rocks right up to the where the surf pounds the shore. Many photographers find the scene irresistible, especially at sunrise and sunset.

The beach is one-kilometer long. It is covered by small stones of various colors and shapes, called seven-color stones. They were formed by tides, sea currents and waves, thousands of years ago.

The Hang Pagoda is over 100 years old and looks over this province in Viet Nam.

Bình Thuận is a province of Vietnam. It is located on the country’s South Central Coast. It is sometimes seen as part of the Southeast region. The province is known for its scenery and beaches. There are also a number of sites of archaeological significance.

As mentioned above, this province is also famous for their beautiful sand dunes. Take a look at the setting of these sand dunes. Have you ever seen sand dunes in a setting like this. A photographers dream.
Binh Thuan has more than one beach. This beach is for the ones who like to use boats and get out into the ocean and play on the beach. Does this look like fun? The water is beautiful, and the weather is usually perfect.

The reason this could be a great place to go visit is because tourism is hardly non-existent. I was just checking that the closest airport to this province is about 715 miles away from this province. But once you get to this province the hotel rates are amazingly low. Good hotel rates run around $25 per day. There are plenty of places to stay, and the food would be authentic. I could not find much western cuisine at all. So, you would be trying mostly all Vietnamese food. But, this would be the trip of a lifetime to go here. Truly a beautiful place. As far as I could see, this place needs a handful of good photographers.

Anybody want to go with me?

One last photo that I really like:
