Phu Yen Culture – Tourism Week 2022 is organized to create a joyful atmosphere among of all people classes on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the re-establishment of Phu Yen province (July 1989-July 2022); introducing the unique culture of Phu Yen province, promoting tourism potential, attracting investment, contributing to the recovery and stimulating demand for tourism development after the COVID-19 epidemic; promoting the image and special cuisine of tuna to domestic and foreign tourists, honoring the tuna fishing of Phu Yen fishermen, encouraging fishermen to continue reaching out to sea.
Phu Yen is the cradle of tuna fishing in Vietnam. From the golden pieces left behind by foreign ships at sea, fishermen working in fly nets in Ward 6, Tuy Hoa city have learned, adjusted and developed a very effective tuna fishing technique. Since 1995, the tuna fishing has started to develop strongly, bringing high economic efficiency, stimulating fishermen to stick to the sea. Phu Yen tuna is supplied to domestic and international chains and restaurants. Culinary products from ocean tuna have become a specialty of Phu Yen – a special ambassador of tourism industry – known to domestic and international friends.
That’s why the organizers chose the theme of this year’s Culture – Tourism Week as “Ocean Tuna – Essence of the sea”.
