How to get from Hoi An to Quy Nhon

We recommend traveling by train from Hoi An to Quy Nhon since this is the safes option. You have to take the train from DaNang to Dieu Tri railway station. From the Dieu Tri, you can take the public bus which brings you in about half an hour to Quy Nhon city center.

Taking the bus is easier, but there are several reports that bus drivers don’t drive safe on this route. For this reason, we prefer the train. Also, note that these buses are not as comfortable for a 5-6 hour journey than the sleeper buses. Unfortunately, you cannot book your bus tickets online.

There is also an airport (Phu Cat) which is about a 1-hour drive from Quy Nhon. The bad thing is that all flights from DaNang to Quy Nhon have a stopover in Ho Chi Minh. The flight takes at least 4 hours + 1 hour to Da Nang Airport and 1 hour from Quy Nhon airport to the center. This is already 6 hours excluding the extra time you need at the airport. For this reason, we do not recommend to take the plane but recommend to travel by train instead.

My favourite places to stay in Bai Xep

Accommodations in Bai Xep get often fully booked, since there is not a lot of choice in this beautiful beach town. That's why we recommend to book your accommodation before you include Bai Xep into your travel itinerary.
