With a favorable geographical location and being endowed by nature, this place is the favorite tourist destination of many people. In the last two years, Canh Duong and Binh An beaches have attracted around 16.300 tourist arrivals on average.

Loc Vinh commune adjoins to Chan May Bay, and it is protected by the Eastern Chan May cape, creating the airtight and waveless watery area. Hence, the Chan May deep-water port usually receives a large number of vessels that come to anchor.

This marine area also brings seafood resources to feed hundreds of fisher households doing seine fishing, câu kiều fishing (câu kiều: a special kind of nets), squid fishing, and fishing by setting net at the bottom, etc.

Let’s contemplate the lifestyle in Chan May together with Thua Thien Hue Online through the flying cam photo series taken by two photographers Thanh Toan and Minh Tue:
