If you’ve even heard of Ninh Thuan province on Vietnam’s south-central coast, you’re doing pretty good. Our man on the coast has just spent the last few days rustling around the province and has come back with just about as detailed coverage as you’re ever going to need to explore Ninh Thuan. Starting at the capital twin towns of Phan Rang Thap Cham, he ventured out to cover the outlying beach districts of Ca Na and Ninh Chu and even found time to find the only restaurant in the region that dishes out authentic twaeji kim chi tchigae.
