Vietnam has 28 coastal provinces and cities stretching more than 3,260 kilometers, from the northern province of Quang Ninh to the southern province of Kien Giang. Quang Ngai Province is located in the middle of the coastline.

Quang Ngai is home to many traditional fishing villages. Among these, Phuoc Thien fishing village in Binh Hai Commune, Binh Son District, is relatively primitive to tourists. Early in the morning, the atmosphere is the liveliest when boats dock at the village with various kinds of fish and squid caught. Some transport fish by basket boats while others buy and sell fish at the seaside.
