Lo Thung Tien Canh is considered the “stone kingdom” of Da Giang river.

1. Where is Lo Thung Tien Canh?

Lo Thung reef is located in village 3, Tien Canh commune, Tien Phuoc district, Quang Nam province, Vietnam. About 75 km south of Hoi An city, about 25 km southwest of Tam Ky city and about 97 km south of Da Nang city.

2. How is Lo Thung Tien Canh unique?

The picture of Hoi An tourism in particular and Quang Nam tourism in general would be missing a beautiful color if not mentioning the scenic Lo Thung rocky beach. Especially, this place is likened to a mysterious “stone kingdom” with hundreds of large and small rocks with strange shapes, stretching more than 2km on Da Giang stream.

Besides, according to folk legend says that in the past, there was a giant god who came to this place to help people open up land and reclaim land. Up to now, the remaining traces of this god are giant footprints printed on rocks, countless stones shaped like pestles, mortars, bowls, furnaces,…

3. When is the best time to visit Lo Thung Tien Canh?

Lo Thung reef has its own beauty in each season waiting for you to discover. In the summer, traveling to Tien Phuoc has extremely pleasant cool weather, suitable for relaxing and sightseeing. During this season, festivals often take place in Tien Phuoc, especially fruit festivals,…

Furthermore, you should come to Lo Thung at the two most beautiful times every day: sunrise and sunset. Like Hon Kem Da Dung, this place still retains its original pristine features, never affected by humans. Visiting Lo Thung, visitors will find peace in their souls.

Otherwise, if you want to experience a new feeling when traveling to Tien Phuoc in the rainy season, we advise you not to. During the rainy season, it is quite quiet here, with strong winds and there can be storms and floods. So this is considered an uninteresting experience for you.
