Discover Quy Nhon
Quy Nhon, or Qui Nhon, is a great alternative if you like to chill on a beach but don’t like the over-touristic cities Nha Trang and Mui Ne. Many people stop in Nha Trang or Mui Ne to spend a few days on the beach, but this will probably not be the relaxed beach city they expect.
Those cities are packed with tourists staying in large resorts and the aggressive taxi drivers don’t give the correct representation of the kindness you would expect from the Vietnamese locals.
Locals will be genuinely interested to get to know you and welcome you with big smiles. And maybe they even invite you to play some volleyball with them.
When you are looking for an even more authentic experience, we recommend staying in the small fishing village of Bai Xep. This town is 10 km south of Quy Nhon and you can reach it in 15 minutes from Quy Nhon centre.
Expect clean beaches with crystal-clear waters and a chilled vibe. That’s also why its popularity has been rising fast among backpackers in recent years.
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 booking your accommodation as far in advance as possible.
