Directions

The city of Quy Nhon has good transport links although they may not be at the most convenient times of day.

BY AIR
Quy Nhon airport (UIH) has a number of flights daily from Saigon and Hanoi. The easiest way to get to us is by taxi. This journey takes about 1 ¼ hours. We can arrange a taxi to meet you on arrival and bring you here for 500,000 VND payable directly to the driver – we do not take a cut. You could also take the shuttle bus to the Vietnam Airlines office on Mai Xuan Thuong. From there it is a 10 minute walk to the main bus terminal outside KFC where you can catch the T11 bus south to Bai Xep for 9000 VND. These buses leave approximately once per hour between 05:30 and 17:15 with a break for lunch. Please check your e-mails regularly before your flight as the flight times can change in the days leading up to your departure. If you have a taxi booked with us then remember to keep us informed.

BY RAIL
There are two railways stations nearby:

Quy Nhon train station is a 15 minute walk from the main bus terminal outside KFC where you can catch the T11 bus south to Bai Xep for 9000 VND. These buses leave approximately once per hour between 05:30 and 17:15 with a break for lunch. We can arrange a taxi to meet you on arrival and bring you here for 200,000 VND payable directly to the driver – we do not take a cut.

Dieu Tri train station is on the Reunification line. This is about 25 minutes away by taxi. We can arrange a taxi to meet you on arrival and bring you here for 300,000 VND payable directly to the driver – we do not take a cut.

BY BUS
Most buses arrive into Quy Nhon at the bus station on Tay Son in front of the Big C and Metro shopping centres. Very often they will let you off at the Petrol station in front of the bus station. From there you can catch the T11 bus south from in front of the Metro store to Bai Xep for 9000 VND. These buses leave approximately once per hour between 05:30 and 17:15 with a break for lunch. Alternatively you can catch a taxi from the bus station to us for about 150,000 VND. Unfortunately, we cannot arrange for a taxi to collect you from the bus station as the arrival times for the buses are very unreliable. We do not advise you to take a motorbike taxi as they rarely have a helmet for you to wear.

If you are coming from the south you can usually get the bus driver to let you out at the top of the village. Track your journey on Google Maps as he is unlikely to know the exact position and once you’re off the bus we are unlikely to be able to determine your position. Continue to walk down through the village until you reach the Village Well. From here turn right and keep walking until you reach the beach. We are on the right hand side on the beach front. The villagers will point you in the right direction. Should you arrive at night please make sure that you have a torch as the pathways can be hazardous after dark.

BY TAXI
If you are going to get a taxi yourself then please make sure you have clear instructions for how to reach us as many taxi drivers are unaware of us. Ask for Bai Xep (pronounced “Buy Sep”). If he tries to drop you at the Bai Xep sign then indicate to keep driving for another 200m where you’ll see our sign at the entrance to the village. Cars and taxis can only get so far in to the village. When they drop you off you should continue to walk down through the village until you reach the Village Well. From here turn right and keep walking until you reach the beach. We are on the right hand side on the beach front. The villagers will point you in the right direction. Should you arrive at night please make sure that you have a torch as the pathways can be hazardous after dark. We can arrange for a taxi to meet you from the Airport or Train Station. He will meet you with a sign with your name, wait should your arrival time be delayed and help you through the village with your luggage. This is a fixed price taxi but priced according to a metered taxi. You pay the driver directly – we do not take a cut.
