Phan Rang Thap Cham


Phan Rang is mostly clustered around Thong Nhat St which runs north-south. In the middle of town is the market, inside and behind an imposing white edifice. It would make sense to base yourself here, though we only found one place to stay in the area, and we found better places to eat near the rest of the accommodation, a kilometre to the south, past the roundabout. Head north out of town to reach the craft villages, Po Ro Me Tower, the Tra Cang Temple, and 32km from town, Ca Na (Vinh Hao is another 21km further). Head south on Thong Nhat St and take a right for Ninh Chu beach and a left to get to the Po Klong Garai Cham Tower.

Like any market town, Phan Rang is well-provided with banks, mostly near the central market. We couldn't find anyplace that would cash travellers checks, but foreign exchange is widely available at the banks and the gold shops along the street. If you're staying near the roundabout, there's an ATM with the Plus system just to west on the east side of the street at the Eastern Asia Money Transfer Company -- if that doesn't work head for the market ATMS which definitely take Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and other cards. Western Union offices are also widely available.

The town is well wired with internet starting at 3,000 VND per hour. The Thong Nhat Hotel has WiFi.
