VAN HOA PLATEAU IN PHU YEN
Van Hoa Plateau called the "Dalat of Phu Yen" is located in the heart of Phu Yen province, in the Son Hoa district and a portion of Tuy An district, with plenty of sunshine, wind, and fog. This is a basaltic red soil generated by volcanic eruptions at an elevation of 400m above sea level, resulting in a calm and cool environment all year.
- The history of Van Hoa Plateau in Phu Yen:
Van Hoa Plateau is located on a historic trade route that connects Phu Yen's coastal area with the wide western portion of Phu Yen, and from there to the Central Highlands. Many revolutionary historical relics relating to the national liberation fight of the Party Committee and the people of Phu Yen province from 1954 to 1975 are still preserved here, including the relics of Uncle Ho's Church and the local military post. In 2008, the Go Thi Thung Tunnels relic and the revolution of Phu Yen province during the resistance fight against the US were designated as national historical relics.
Uncle Ho's Church, established in 1969, is a typical historical remnant in Van Hoa Plateau. When Uncle Ho died, this is where the Phu Yen people had memorial rites; since then, it has become a haven for the Phu Yen people. Uncle Ho is quietly remembered until the South is entirely emancipated. Uncle Ho's Church was designated a national historical relic in 2008 and was extensively repaired and refurbished over an area of 0.5 hectares. Visitors frequently come here to honor Uncle Ho, learn history in the traditional chamber, and view a gallery relating to the resistance base region of Phu Yen province during the US resistance war.
Not only does Ho Chi Minh City have Cu Chi tunnels and Quang Tri has Vinh Moc tunnels, but Van Hoa Plateau has a separate tunnel system. The Go Thi Thung Tunnels National Historic Site was erected in May 1964 and finished in August 1965, and it included a tunnel approximately 2 kilometers long and 4 to 5 meters deep from the ground, as well as a defense system. During the war, trenches more than 10 kilometers long contributed to constructing formidable enemy combat tactics.
On June 24, 1966, the heaviest American fight in Phu Yen in the resistance struggle against the US took place in the vicinity of Go Thi Thung Tunnels, incurring massive casualties of the US 1st Airborne Division and shooting down and shooting down 9 planes. The Go Thi Thung Tunnels relic is now being repaired and enhanced, with around 200m of tunnels restored to serve tourists.
- The Natural in Van Hoa Plateau:
The red orchards are a distinctive attraction where travelers frequently "check-in." The red tree is a natural, woody plant that grows to a height of 10-15 meters. The fruit of this tree develops in clusters on the stem and when mature, it is crimson. The fruit has a sour taste and may be eaten or fermented to make wine. The red tree blooms in January and matures in the eighth month of the lunar calendar. Visitors may visit various red orchards, including Bon Binh's red orchard and Bon Phuong's red tree garden.
Visitors frequently come to savor the sweet and tart red fruits, to commune with nature, to see the red trees filled with fruit from root to tip, and to capture lovely moments in the ripe red garden. Visitors may take photographs of an ancient jackfruit tree over a hundred years old with three people hugging, jackfruit in Van Hoa plateau is both delicious and crispy, and golden nursery is a well-known local product.
Long Van Garden and BB Farm are also part of the tourism complex on the Van Hoa Plateau. The Long Van Garden stop can accommodate around 1,000 tourists and offers services and amenities including restaurants, flower gardens, campgrounds, campfires, and homestays.
