Binh Thanh Commune, Tuy Phong District in Binh Thuan Province has been receiving a lot of attention of late. A 1.5km long, 15-20m wide and up to 2m thick deposit of rocks of many colors, estimated to weigh over 243,000 tones has turned this sleepy rural area in to a tourist site.
To arrive at this unique ocean side site at sunset, that is recorded in Vietnam’s Guinness Book of Records as “the ground of rocks of many shapes and colors”, one can take advantage of the cooling sea breeze as it dispatches the heat radiating off the barren rocky area. The multicolored path of stones winds along the coastline only to be interrupted by larger rocks that nature indiscriminately places to add to the awesome sight.
Not far away from here is the home of Pham Quang Phap, a retired Lieutenant Colonel, who is affectionately known as “the man who adds soul to rocks”. He has created a series of rock parterres, each designed from one color.
Inside his house, there are various pieces of art created by colorful rocks, such as a map of Vietnam, One-Pillar Pagoda, “Nhan” script, landscape, ship-shaped rocks, etc. Pham Quang Phap also used rocks to create artworks reflecting interesting poems in the poem collection “The Prison Diary” by President Ho Chi Minh.
Pham Quang Phap said that he discovered the wonders of rocks at the beach in his homeland and collected them to create his artworks. “Although it is said that rocks have only seven colors, I collected 130 rocks with different colors, such as turquoise, green, violet, dark pink, light pink, pink with violet or red, etc.,” he said.
Thanks to its uniqueness, the place has attracted an increasing number of tourists.
