Quy Nhon is a charming coastal town located between Hoi An and Nha Trang. It is a place with people who seem to genuinely enjoy life; here are some tips to keep in mind if you’re planning to come here for some much-needed time off.
What can you do here?
You can revel in the feeling of absolutely doing nothing. You don’t have to feel guilty about leaving those omnipresent emails unread or those texts unopened. This is the best place to come to if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed in Vietnam or you need a break from humanity and its drama; travellers don’t come by here as much so it’s very peaceful and calming.
Places to stay and eat
The food here is fresh out of the ocean and refreshingly spicy. Because there aren’t many places here that cater to tourists, your best bet is to follow the locals to the secret food stalls serving utterly mouth-watering delights at unbelievably cheap prices. There are a few Vietnam beach resorts the likes of Avani Quy Nhon Resort and even beach hostels and guest houses.
Visit the Huong Mai Temple
Visiting this beautiful temple is one of the best things you can do here. This serene temple is filled with breathtakingly intricate carvings and statues that you must see. The best part is that because the city is not too touristy, you’ll almost always get a chance to wander around the temple grounds all on your own, unbothered by vendors or tourists clicking pictures.
The real reason to visit here
If you’re someone who enjoys the local culture and way of life, it is highly recommended that you visit this small city hidden away in the unexplored corners of Vietnam. As it is not a “tourist destination” there aren’t many western food options and luxury amenities available here. So, if you enjoy adapting to the local and traditional way of life, exploring the authentic Vietnamese culture pay a visit here.
