If you’re taking the train from Nha Trang to Quy Nhon, you have to book a ticket going to Dieu Tri railway station. From Dieu Tri, you can take the public bus which takes about half an hour to Quy Nhon city center.
The bus is also a quick option to get from Nha Trang to Quy Nhon, but keep in mind that the train is safer and offers more comfort. Also, note that the bus does not leave from the center of Nha Trang.
There is also an airport (Phu Cat), which is about a 1-hour drive from Quy Nhon. However, there are no direct flights from Nha Trang to this airport.
We recommend travelling from Nha Trang to Dieu Tri railway station. From Dieu Tri, you can take a local bus or taxi to Quy Nhon center. There is also a railway station in Quy Nhon center. But we do not recommend this option since the only train from Nha Trang to this station departs at 4:00 in the morning.
Step 1: Nha Trang to Dieu Tri by Train

We recommend booking SE8 so you still have a chance to catch a public bus to the center of Quy Nhon.
Soft seats cost 125,000 VND ($5.50) and if you want to relax a bit more, consider to book a sleeper berth for at least 185,000 VND ($8).
Step 2: Dieu Tri Railway Station to Quy Nhon by Bus/Taxi

Another option is to take the local bus T22. This bus brings you for less than $1 to Quy Nhon and you can find this bus when you walk out of Dieu Tri railway station. The ride takes about half an hour and the bus drops you at the CoopMart in the center of Quy Nhon.
Nha Trang to Quy Nhon by Bus
Duration: 4 hours Cost: 180,000 VND ($8)
There are two direct buses from Nha Trang to Quy Nhon that are available to book online via BookAway. These are Phuc Thuan Thao and Ha Linh.
Phuc Thuan Thao operates one trip daily. However, Bear in mind that the departure point is at the company’s own bus station located south of Nha Trang. It takes about a 20-min drive from the center of Nha Trang to get here. Adding the extra costs for the taxi will make this option more expensive than taking the train.
If Phuc Thuan Thao’s schedule does not work for you, you can also book with Ha Linh or Lien Hung. But note that these buses arrive in the middle of the night in Quy Nhon.
You can also book with Ha Linh for a few dollars cheaper on Baolau. Still, we recommend booking with BookAway whenever possible as it offers the best customer service and is much more reliable.
Lien Hung is currently not available to book online, but you can ask your hotel or a local agency if you want to book with them.
