Aug 3, 2013 - A Little Slice of Haven

I had it on good advice that Quy Nhon, a tiny beach town between Hoi An and Nha Trang, was essentially devoid of tourists and hawkers desperate to sell items to the worn out traveler. Neither two-hour train delay in a packed-to-the-gills railroad station, full of locals hellbent on getting a seat near the station doors while carrying half of their homes in roped-tied packages, nor a 6 hour train ride in a 4 person berth which I curiously shared with 5 locals who insisted I help them eat their cold boiled eggs and steamed ears of corn while...

Nov 28, 2009 - Toi Hieu (I dont understand) in Quy Nhon

The Lonely Planet guide book descibed this place as 'less touristy' than Na Trang. It doesnt say 'you will be the only tourists in this place'. After waking and thowing back the curtains (remember we arrived in the dark), we were greeted by a beautiful view of Quy Nhon Bay of the the South China Sea. We headed off on a Xe Moto taxi (moped) to find the local booking office so we could get the next bit of our travel sorted. The booking office does not exist where the map says it should. However, we decided food was required and tried to go to...

Jan 26, 2008 - Children

Today we rode for 60 km through rice paddy fields and villages on this road that was unpaved. What a scene. The children are so wnderful, the vietnamese so friendly it warms the heart. The children want to touch us all of the time and you just need to smile at them and they are so happy. It doesn't seem to matter whether they are the wealthier school children or the working chldren or the really, really poor kids they all just leave being noticed by us. The vietnamese, at least in the south, love to laugh. As we move further north there is...

Dec 17, 2007 - Quy Nhon

Mi sono fermata in questa piccola citta' sulla costa a godermi il mare. Una cittadina di pescatori... C'e' una quasi costante pioggerellina, ma la spiaggia arancione, il cielo e il mare di un blu intenso mi piacciono moltissimo. Tutto bene. A presto foto. Gio

Mar 15, 2007 - Chan May, VIETNAM

"The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions" - Thich Nhat Hanh [1926], Vietnamese Buddhist monk and noble peace prize nominee [1967]. Last night we had a champagne party with two new Australian friends who told us they had adopted a little orphaned Vietnamese boy who had been traumatised by watching his mother gang raped and murdered by American GI soldiers. The boy is now dying due to the effects of 'Agent Orange'. How prophetic the monks words were to be'. We arrived at the Port of Chan...

Feb 2, 2006 - To Quy Nhon

02 February - To Quy Nhon I took a taxi at 0615 to the railway station, well early for my 0720 train, which arrived at 0740 anyway. It was a pretty grotty train, the floor was filthy and some of the passengers looked disreputable. However, I sat next to a very nice Vietnamese man who was a Doctor. He spoke good English and was pleased to have the opportunity to practise. He had left Quy Nhon two days earlier having spent Tet with his parents and family, and gone back to Hue where he lives and works. However, yesterday he had a call to say...

Jul 28, 2005 - Quy Nhon (Vietnam) - REISVERSLAG 9

Na al de toeristische toestanden in Halong Bay en Hoi An besluit ik om toch nog even weg te geraken van de drukbetreden paden. Enig geblader in mijn Lonely Planet levert een interessant kuststadje op, Quy Nonh, op een goede 800 km van Ho Chi Minh. Enkele strand, enkele leuke pagoda's en enkele bezienswaardigheden in het hinterland en vooral geen grote toeristische attracties geven de doorslag en daags nadien zit ik dan ook op de lokale boemeltrein van 6 uur 's morgens tot 1 uur 's middags om ter plaats te geraken. Via xe om overbrug ik de...
