Avani Travel Diary – Quy Nhon, Vietnam


Being a coastal town, life in Quy Nhon revolves around the ocean. Tiny fishing boats bobbing along the coastal horizon, an unspoilt sandy beach with a lush green mountainous backdrop and dozens of unassuming local eateries and bars dotting the promenade.

Make Avani Quy Nhon Resort your base if you want to combine beachfront relaxation and a bit of sightseeing. With nearby picturesque islands and a thriving fishing village, there are plenty of offsite activities to keep you busy between yoga and tai chi classes on the resort’s veranda. In addition, you can rent a kayak and go exploring or try a cooking class, a martial arts workshop or a tension-relieving massage at a hilltop spa with stunning views and salty breezes.

For a taste of local culture, start your day with a cup of extra-strong Vietnamese drip coffee served over ice and sweetened with condensed milk, then stop for a filling breakfast of Banh Xeo, a type of Vietnamese pancake wrapped in rice paper and filled with prawns and fresh vegetables. This being the seafood capital of Vietnam, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to the affordable bounty of the sea. Be sure to try Banh Canh Cha Ca, a rice noodle soup filled with fishcakes, vegetables, and beansprouts — another breakfast favourite.

After lunch in Quy Nhon, visit the history museum and the twin Cham Towers downtown for the most unusual photo backdrop. After dark, hop on a motorbike with a local guide who will take you to the night market, local eateries, a karaoke parlour, and some relaxed waterfront spot for an ice-cold beer or two.
