The Prince's Castle in Phan Thiet

Phan Thiet Attractions

The Prince’s Castle, set atop Ong Hoang Hill, offers breathtaking views of Mui Ne’s historical structures, surrounding hills, coastline and countryside. Its name was given by the locals after French Duke De Montpensier had taken a liking to the hilltop and built a massive estate house in 1911.

The villa originally spanned 536 square metres but due to a lack of restoration efforts, all that’s left today is its stone foundations as well as an old watchtower and several military bunkers that were used during the French occupation of Vietnam.

After exploring The Prince’s Castle, travellers can easily make their way to other prominent attractions on foot such as the Po Shanu Cham Towers, which were built by the Cham people to commemorate Lord Shiva during the 8th century. The tomb of Vietnamese poet Han Mac Tu is also located nearby the towers, who often praised The Prince’s Castle and its surroundings in his love stories and poets.

Ideal for travellers looking to escape the bustling town centre, The Prince’s Castle is accessible within a 15-minute drive from Mui Ne. Entrance to the French estate ruins is free of charge, but there’s a parking fee of VND 2,000 if you’re travelling by car or motorcycle while entrance to Po Shanu Towers is priced at VND 10,000.
