A church and ancient basalt stepping stones are the major symbols of the central coastal province of Phú Yên.
The central province officially debuted a new eco-tour site at the Triêm Tây village in Điện Bàn town during the on-going Quảng Nam Heritage Festival.
Thanh Chiêm Palace (1602-1883), which was a cradle of Vietnamese romanized script, has been recognised as the National Relic state by the ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Situated on the road side of the old National Highway 1, the craft village of Phước Kiều in Quảng Nam Province still preserves the 500-year-old bronze cast trade and lives well from their ancestor’s industry.
Thanh Chiêm Palace (1602-1883) was a cradle of Vietnamese romanized script and the priest Francisco de Pina (1585-1625) was the founder of the modern writing system of the Vietnamese language.
The central Quảng Nam Province will host a science conference on the Thanh Chiêm Palace and the creation of the Vietnamese romanised script – a question that has been unclear since the previous conference in 2002.
