Quy Nhon Travel Tips – Vietnam’s Forgotten Paradise

Quy Nhon remains little known as a destination, and relatively unspoiled. The following will help you prepare for a visit to this stunning landscape.

1

Best Time to Travel

Quy Nhon is a great year-round destination, but the best time to visit is during the dry season or just prior to the monsoon seasons. March and April are a great time to travel to Quy Nhon, as these months feature stable weather and comfortable temperatures with low humidity. September is another good time to visit the region as there's a good amount of sunshine and low humidity. Tourist numbers are still fairly high but significantly lower than that of July and August.

Getting there

The best way to get into Quy Nhơn, Vietnam is via Ho Chi Minh. Flying is the fastest way to get in and arrive 30 kilometres away from the city. From here, you can hire a cab or take an airport bus to central Quy Nhon. Trains and busses are also available and departing daily from Ho Chi Minh. This is far more affordable than a flight but involves up to 14 hours of travel.

Getting around

If you haven't got a car and driver, the next best way to navigate this beautiful destination is on the back of a motorbike. Renting a motorbike is easy and cost effective, (about 5-6USD) per day. You may be required to leave a copy of your ID card and a deposit for the rental. You may also like to see the region by cycling or on an electric bike, both of which are easily available.

See and Do

This region has it all, mountains and forests, vast rice fields, salt marshes, lagoons, lakes, shorelines and islands all within a 300km radius. It's a part of old Vietnam, unlike any other. You might like to go mountain trekking, enjoy the stunning beaches, or flat waters to canoe on. Quy Nhon offers several hidden beaches in Ky Co, which brings together a magnificent shoreline with mountain cliffs. The sunset view at Eo Gio – a gorgeous shoreline about 20 kilometres away from Quy Nhon, located in Nhon Ly region comes highly recommended. Stop by the Thi Nai Bridge – one of the longest and most incredible bridge constructions of the area.

Dining

The historic coastal town of Quy Nhơn was once the centre of agriculture, fishing and the first port of call during the 15th century Ming treasure voyages, hence a rich tradition in its cuisine. Quy Nhon has some of the best dining found in Vietnam, much of the cuisine being shaped around the abundance of fresh seafood. Check out the open-air beach restaurants, but also sample the town's quaint roadside spots. For a relatively small town, Quy Nhơn has a large selection of vegetarian restaurants. The dining experiences here range from simple and casual meals, to hands on cooking lessons or fine dining. Check out a few hotels that might offer such experiences on sites like Quy Nhon Coastal Escape, for instance which sometimes focuses on curated food tours across the city.
