Vietnamese and foreign experts have highly praised the geological heritage of the coastal province of Quang Ngai.
In many areas in the province it is easy to find fascinating geological features that can help you trace the long history of the Earth. Scientists believe there was a volcano here 10 million years ago.
Experts said these areas, including Ly Son and Binh Chau, should be recognized as global geoparks.
