We have 9 places to stay in and around Phan Thiet.
Though Phan Thiet is a relatively small city, what you plan to do there should determine where you should stay.
The city’s main tourist market is Vietnamese tourists and very few hotels speak English; in contrast, Mui Ne’s accommodation is well set up for budget backpackers and offers overall better value. Ban Mai 66 is the only budget hotel we found that rented motorbikes.
From Phan Thiet city south down to Ke Ga Lighthouse is 35 kilometres of coast, most of it wild beach. It’s dotted with a few Russian tour-series resorts, defunct abandoned properties and a few surprising places to stay.
Staying in this area will appeal to those who don’t mind the isolated location and have a bigger budget. You will either have to eat at the accommodation or come prepared to self-cater. When we visited in March 2016, there was no budget accommodation along this stretch.
