Let's Get the Obvious One out of the Way

Being a coastal town of quite some renown due to its popularity with tourists, of course, it should come as no surprise that one of the top Quy Nhon things to do is indeed to spend some time at the beaches here. And one of the best ways to do this is to stay at a beachfront resort. Without further ado, let's take a look at some of the beaches that you can enjoy in Quy Nhon. To name a few, there's Ky Co Beach, Bai Xep Beach, Quy Hoa Beach, Queen Beach, and Quy Nhon Beach.


Hon Kho Island

If you want to enjoy snorkelling, jet skiing, kayaking, or a range of other watersports, spend some time at Hon Kho Island. Snorkelling, in particular, would be a good activity to enjoy here since there are coral reefs quite close to the shore.

Binh Dinh Museum

If you're really into learning about the history of the destinations that you visit, set aside a few hours to explore the halls of the Binh Dinh Museum. There is a range of artefacts on display here including ones related to the war, as well as some ancient sculptures that were created during the time of the Cham civilisation. It's quite a small museum but manages to cover all the important areas of the history of the area. Different sections of the halls, as well as separated rooms, are dedicated to different topics in the area's history. For example, there's a room dedicated to the American War, while the hall at the entrance showcases items related to the communist movement. The museum is located at 28 D Nguyen Hue and is generally open during certain time slots during the day for certain times of the year. For example between April and September, the museum is normally open between 7 am to 11 am and 2 pm to 5 pm. However, between October and March, its open between 7.30 am to 11 am and 1.30 am to 4.30 pm daily during normal circumstances.
