This road, although very smooth, has its major limitations, including danger and dust due to a large number of trucks. But as long as you get to Phu My, you will have these troubles greatly reduced.

After stopping for lunch, you should visit the diverse temples that line the streets of Phu My. To better understand the life of the locals, our advice is to wander around the bustling local markets, experience street food, and stroll through the classic French villa-style architecture.
