years, Binh Thuan tourism still lacks unique tourism products to cater tourists.
Fortunately, the debut of Rang Dong Wine Castle amidst the 5-star Sea Link

5 kinds of wine with about 30 ml per type with many different scents. Through
the tour, visitors can explore, visit and listen to the basic introduction of

It looks so beautiful at first. The
