How to get from Nha Trang to Quy Nhon?

Quy Nhon is a luxury resort town in central Vietnam. With its beautiful beaches, picturesque cliffs, and tidy streets, it is a popular destination for the country’s rich and famous.

The city is well-known as the gateway to Bai Xep, a relatively remote fishing village with quiet beaches and pristine waters. Bai Xep offers refuge to travellers looking for an escape from Vietnam’s bustling cities.

Quy Nhon also holds the biggest and most well-preserved remnants of the indigenous Champa Kingdom, which ruled the region in the 11th century.

The bus is an alternative option, but a bit expensive with rates from 321,000 VND ($13.50). We don’t think it’s worth spending that much when the bus terminals in both Nha Trang and Quy Nhon are located outside the city centre.

There is no direct flight from Nha Trang to Quy Nhon. So although there is an airport (Phu Cat), which is about a 1-hour drive from Quy Nhon, travel time will take just about as long as the train or the bus. Flights are also way more expensive.
