“Sa Huynh – A journey with 3,000 years of culture” (1 day)
Sa Huynh is a famous place in the south of Quang Ngai province that contains many mysteries of life. This land seems peaceful with golden sand, blue sea, warm sunshine, but nature and people have undergone changes of nature and history, leaving strong and unique imprints. The process of collision and displacement of the earth’s crust in the tectonic history hundreds of millions of years ago has created a variety of topography and geomorphology, leaving Sa Huynh with beautiful landscapes that captivate tourists. This is also the condition to form an ideal living space for Sa Huynh ancient residents, which witnessed exciting developments in the Sa Huynh culture more than 3,000 years ago. The prehistoric Sa Huynh was a golden land for people to live and develop for a long time, creating international geo-cultural heritages.
