The Dau Giay – Phan Thiet Expressway will be open to traffic from Saturday, reducing the travel time from HCMC to Phan Thiet Beach town by three hours.
The expressway stretches 99 km going through Dong Nai and Binh Thuan provinces. It is connected with the Ho Chi Minh City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway, which runs from HCMC to Dong Nai.
The project has a total investment of over VND12.5 trillion, and after completion, it will shorten the travel time from HCMC to the Phan Thiet – Mui Ne tourist center by 50 percent to only 2-2.5 hours by car. It will help reduce the traffic load on the crucial National Highway 1A and have a significant impact on the development of the key economic zone in the South.
Tourists now can enjoy Phan Thiet’s beautiful beaches and sand dunes easier, eat seafood and try unique fishing village Vietnamese cultures.
