The boat-themed alley was designed and displayed for the first time during the Tam Ky Sea Tourism Festival 2019.

Subsequently, the local authorities renovated and upgraded the alley with the participation of numerous artists from all over Vietnam and even foreign artists.

This boat-themed alley consists of about 100 bamboo boats, over ten wooden ships with over 60 oars, and three fishing nets. The artistic display on this alley will offer you captivating virtual living corners.

4.3 Tam Thanh Beach with its blue sea and white sand

With its fantastic natural advantages and stunning white sandy beach, this is a place worth developing for tourism to increase income and create jobs for local fishermen.

Tam Thanh Beach is most beautiful in summer when the sea is extremely clear, the sky is bright, and the golden sunlight shines. During the late tourist season and early years, the sea has stronger waves, the water has a deeper emerald color, and the sky has scattered white clouds. Despite this, this pristine beauty will captivate you from the first glance whenever you visit Tam Thanh Beach.

4.4 Traditional Fish Sauce Craft Village

With the large-scale industrialization of other production facilities elsewhere, the traditional fish sauce village in Tam Thanh still maintains its ancient traditions. The town has about 20 fish sauce production facilities with unique conventional methods to preserve seafood’s fresh and intact taste.

Besides touring the production process, these facilities directly sell these fish sauce types to tourists at reasonable prices. This traditional fish sauce is suitable for buying as a gift for family and friends.

4.5 Simple and rustic meals near the beach

Near Tam Thanh Mural Village’s beach, a row of restaurants was opened by residents, not influenced by the industrialization of tourism conglomerates. The menus at these restaurants mainly feature local dishes such as stir-fried seaweed with garlic, grilled firewood-oven snakehead fish, squid hotpot, stingray hotpot, steamed barramundi, grilled scallops, and steamed Thai clams. All at very affordable prices.

The supply of ingredients for these restaurants comes directly from the fishing activities of Tam Thanh villagers. Therefore, the food prices are relatively cheap compared to restaurants at other tourist spots.

Tam Thanh Hoi, An Mural Village, is not too large, and you only need to spend about half a day to fully explore this fishing village’s simple yet charming beauty.
