Chu Lai


tel 0510

Tam Ky, the capital of Quang Nam province, is a nondescript town on the highway between Chu Lai and Danang. However, travellers are drawn to the Cham towers at nearby Chien Dan (Chien Dan Cham) which is located 5km north of Tam Ky 69km north of Quang Ngai and 62km south of Danang.

The three towers are enclosed by a wall and a broken stele here dates from the 13th century reign of king Harivarman. Many of the Cham statues you cans see on display at Chien Dan were collected from other parts of the country after the American Warand show signs of war-related damage. Expect to have to make a donation to the site’s insistent custodian; there were no tickets or price lists when we visited, but aruond 5,000 per person is probably a fair amount to give.

Dong Duong

The Cham religious centre of Dong Duong (formerly called Indrapura) was the site of Monastery of Lakshmindra-Lokeshvara, an important Mahayana Buddhist monastery that was founded in AD 875. Dong Duong also served as the capital of Champa from AD 860 to AD 986, until the capital was transferred to Cha Dan (near Qui Nhon). Tragically, as a result of the devastation wrought by wars with the French and Americans, oly part of the gate to Dong Duong remains.

Plaecs to Stay

Tam Ky Hotel (Khach san Tam Ky; National Hwy 1) is a big pink place in the centre of town. This is the only hotel in Tam Ky that can accommodate travellers; you’re better off staying in Hoi An.

About 30km north of Quang NGai, the buildings and concreteaircraft revetments of the huge American base at Chu Lai stretch along several kilometres of sand to the east of National Hwy 1.

Dung Quat oil refinery, the first nefinery in Vietnam, is being developed at Chu Lai. An airport to service it was due to open at the time of writting; this will provide another point of entry (by air) to central Vietnam. Check schedule services on offer when you arrive.
