Located along scenic shores, Quy Nhon in central Vietnam is ideal for a journey of self-discovery, romantic retreat or family getaway. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning your holiday.
Quy Nhon is around 303 km from Danang and 677 km from Ho Chi Minh City. It can be reached via domestic flights, while bus rides (12-14 hours) and train journeys (to nearby Dieu Tri) from Ho Chi Minh City are also available; alternatively, you can catch The Vietage luxury train from Hoi An to Quy Nhon.
In Vietnam, beach resorts offer ideal accommodation options which can be enjoyed here as well. Properties like Avani Quy Nhon Resort are located along a private beach overlooking the bay and offer ocean view rooms and cliff-top dining as well as access to spa treatments, local attractions and excursions.
There’s never a dull moment; you can visit historical attractions like the ancient Cham-era Thap Doi Towers, set off for deep sea fishing in a traditional boat, go snorkelling and kayaking and cycle to local villages. You can also head to the Binh Dinh Museum and enjoy shopping and foodie delights at the Quy Nhon Night Market.
This coastal region is home to some of the country’s best beaches. The main Quy Nhon Beach with its golden sands is easy to access, while also popular are the picturesque Ky Co Beach and secluded Bai Xep Beach. Not to be missed is Hon Kho, an island with pristine beaches and a turtle conservation centre too.
