NDO – Tuy An district is a coastal district in the south central province of Phu Yen, which is baked in sun and wind all year round. The district is home to the Da Dia Reef, a popular tourist destination, and many unique traditional craft villages.

Visitors to the district can admire villagers in An Dan and An Dinh communes making bamboo basket boats or take a tour to An Cu commune to learn more about the traditional craft of weaving sedge mats. The crafts of making bamboo basket boats and weaving sedge mats generate stable incomes for villagers.
