Overview

A likeable little seaport town, Quy Nhon is set on a narrow stake of land harpooning the South China Sea.

It’s a good place to get away from tourists – few come here, thanks in no small part to the fact that the local beach is both less dazzling than others along this coast, and a bit shallow for swimming. For more adventurous travellers, however, the lack of foreigners only adds to the town’s intrigue, and there are a few places worth checking out in the nearby area, including some superbly restored Cham towers. The beach makes a lovely place for a breezy evening stroll.

North of Quy Nhon, and within easy day-trip distance, are the Banh It towers, and the Cha Ban Citadel – both important remnants of Cham rule.

Cha Ban Citadel

Thi Nai Pond and the longest cross-sea bridge spanning Quy Nhon City and Phuong Mai archipelago are must-visit attractions that you can not miss in the trip.
