Quy Nhon is a coastal town in central Vietnam that can be reached by plane from Hanoi and from Ho Chin Minh City. Arriving from abroad, the second alternative is recommended because of the fare and the time duration of the journey (one hour instead of one an half hour). Indeed, from Ho Chi Minh City, there are daily flights at 6:00 and 14:25 (Vietnam Airlines) and at 08:40 (Air Mekong) but it must be checked. From Hanoi there is a single flight at 6:00 (Vietnam Airlines) every days excepted on Wednesday. See also the useful booking sites (vietnamflight, Jetstar). The airport is around 20km north-west of Quy Nhon.
solutions are bus
and train (useful
informations are here).
bus is the cheapest means of transport. Buses
are becoming on more international standards.
The express buses are faster than local buses,
which stop anywhere on request. There are also
buses chartered by private companies. The express
train connecting Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City is
named the Reunification
Express. There are 3 per day in each
direction. Trains that are registered SE are
the fastest, while the TN are (much)
slower, see Golden
Trains (between Saigon & Quy-Nhon).
