I have a confession to make: I don’t think Vietnam’s beaches are all that great. Not usually, anyway.

During my trips to Vietnam I visited the popular beaches of Mui Ne, Nha Trang, Hoi An, and all the rest of it — and often came away feeling a little disappointed. The beaches are often soullessly developed with big hotels aimed at Chinese or Russian package tourists, or they’re just too crowded or lacking a certain charm.

And… that’s precisely why I want to tell you about Qui Nhon!

Qui Nhon (also spelled Quy Nhon) is one of those seaside places in Vietnam that actually made me crack a smile and think to myself, “wow… this is really lovely!”.

The beaches around Qui Nhon are only mildly developed and have maintained a low-key atmosphere, which is just what I like. The area around Qui Nhon is also home to numerous ancient Cham temples overlooked by the masses.

If you’re looking to break up your journey from central Vietnam at a bit more of an authentic place, it’s highly worth staying a couple of nights in Qui Nhon.

Where’s Qui Nhon?

Qui Nhon is a small city in the center of Vietnam, located roughly halfway between Hoi An and Nha Trang.

It’s still a bit unknown; most backpackers that I mentioned Qui Nhon to gave me a quizzical look. The only person I spoke to who was also going there was an in-the-know expat living in Vietnam who I met at a train station in Dong Hoi.

The city of Qui Nhon itself is not so noteworthy in terms of tourism, though it does offer the chance to explore some local markets and streets for a taste of Vietnamese city life.

More interesting than the city are the nice beaches that are within a 30-minute or so radius of it.

Although it’s a bit off the beaten track, once you get to Qui Nhon (pronounced like Kwee N-yawn), you’ll still find a good number of backpackers and independent travelers there. Some arrive by bus or train, while quite a few others make a stop here on a Vietnam motorbiking trip.

The beaches of Qui Nhon

The beaches in Qui Nhon are not majorly developed (so far), with most having a relaxed hammock-ey beach hostel vibe.

You shouldn’t expect anything like the funky surfer beaches of Bali or the hidden bays with scintillating waters of the Philippines, mind you. But by Vietnamese standards, they do have plenty of charm.

I went to four different beaches in- or near Qui Nhon. Let me tell you about them in order of personal preference:

Nhon Hai beach

This is easily my favourite beach near Qui Nhon. Nhon Hai beach is in a cute fishing village without any major tourism development. It’s a simple place where you’ll fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the sea.

I stayed at Nhon Hai Beach Hostel, which is a lovely little gem of a hostel. I was told that when the owner first set his mind to starting a hostel in this out-of-the-way place, the villagers declared him mad. But it was clearly a stroke of genius — and thanks to word-of-mouth it’s now a well-established hangout.

There isn’t much to do except to read a book in a hammock, go kayaking around the bay, or go snorkeling at a nearby reef (free kayaks and snorkeling masks are provided). Still, many guests here come with a booking for just a night or two but end up staying much longer.

Nhon Hai has just one little blemish: if you follow the beach further into the town it becomes much less appealing, with a lot of plastic and other trash. The reality is that such sights are not uncommon in countries like Vietnam and can’t always be avoided. The beach in front of the hostel is thankfully kept very clean.

I should caution that Nhon Hai is not your typical tourist destination in that you won’t find Western food and amenities here. That may not appeal to everyone, but I loved the local vibe and idyllic setting.

I lent my kayak to this Vietnamese couple for a photo shoot. Looking cool!

How to get to Nhon Hai beach: it’s about 30 minutes from Qui Nhon city. It’s a bit out of the way, but worth it. If you have a motorbike you can just drive there, or you can take a public bus or taxi. If you need any help, you can also go to 5 Elements Hostel in Qui Nhon city, as this hostel is run by the same owner. There is no ATM in Nhon Hai, so be sure to bring cash!

You can book your stay at Nhon Hai Beach Hostel here.

Bai Xep beach

This is my second favourite beach near Qui Nhon, about 20 minutes south of the city. I stayed here for one night, before I discovered Nhon Hai.

Some enterprising Vietnamese turned Bai Xep into the go-to spot: the Life’s A Beach Hostel grew from one to a whopping four locations. Each location of Life’s A Beach Hostel caters to a slightly different crowd, so pay attention to which one you book!

Life’s A Beach Backpackers is definitely for a younger and drink-happy crowd. It has basic dorms and bamboo huts and a lively bar. While it’s a party hostel, things do wind down around 2 a.m., and it’s mostly quiet during the day.

The hostel is a bit close to the road and the beach is merely OK, but it has a fun and WiFi-free vibe (yep, people actually talk to each other!). It’s great if you’re in your 20s and open to some mild- to medium intensity partying. Its somewhat isolated location makes it a great place to meet people and be in a bubble for a while.

The other Life’s A Beach location (the one without the word ‘Backpackers’) is on a prettier beach just up the road. The age range is a bit broader; there’s some younger but also some grey-haired backpackers. The atmosphere is social with often family-style dinners. It’s next to a small fisherman’s hamlet with a few basic shops and Vietnamese eateries, making it a bit less isolated than Life’s A Beach Backpackers.

While I think Nhon Hai is the ultimate beach near Qui Nhon, Bai Xep does have much more accommodation options and is a bit easier to reach. Besides Life’s A Beach, there is also the adjacent Big Tree Backpackers and a cluster of guesthouses and B&Bs.

How to get to Bai Xep: you’ll need to take a taxi from Qui Nhon. There are no ATMs in Bai Xep and you’ll be a little isolated, especially at Life’s A Beach Backpackers, so bring everything you need.

Ky Co beach

This is not a beach you can stay the night at, but it’s one you can visit as a nice little day trip. Ky Co gained some infamy among locals for being the ‘most beautiful beach in Vietnam’. I don’t know if it needs quite that much hype, but I certainly enjoyed it.

The beach is surrounded by some cool cliffs, though the waters can get very choppy and maybe aren’t perfect for swimming. It’s mostly locals who make it to Ky Co, along with a sprinkling of foreigners.

You’ll have to pay a 100,000 dong park entrance fee and for a minivan service to take you from the parking lot area to the beach itself. Once there, you’ll find a smattering of seafood restaurants and a spacious and blissfully clean beach.

In 2023 a huge luxury resort and safari park were under construction several kilometres north, so this beach may get more crowded in the future. Go there now!

How to get to Ky Co: the easiest way is to have your own motorbike. Some hostels in Qui Nhon may also be offering organized trips out to Ky Co.

Qui Nhon city beach

I’m a bit biased against municipal beaches as I prefer ones that are outside of the city. But as far as city beaches go, Qui Nhon has a great one. It’s kept spotlessly clean and the city itself is typically Vietnamese, still mostly free of the rampant development seen in other beach resort cities like Nha Trang. While Qui Nhon might also be a bit quiet for some, it’s got a couple of bars by the promenade that come alive at night.

A great place to stay in Qui Nhon is the 5 Elements Hostel, run by the same owners as the Nhon Hai Beach Hostel. It’s got some nice rooms and is located close to everything you might need, making it a great starting point for a stay in Qui Nhon.

Things to do near Qui Nhon

The area isn’t bursting with sightseeing potential; you’ll probably be happy to stick mostly to your chosen beach and relax. That said, there are a few things you can check out.

Firstly, there are various Champa towers around the area. The Champa are indigenous people, following mainly the Hindu religion, who settled in large parts of Vietnam from the 11th century. The archaeological sites are very small, though of course of genuine historical significance and some are in quite scenic locations.

The most important site is Vijaya, which served as the Cham capital for over 500 years. The excellent blog Vietnam Coracle has detailed information on all the Cham sites.

You can also go sandboarding near Nhon Ly beach. I didn’t get a chance to do this during my stay, but I’ve heard the experience is similar to the sandboarding in Mui Ne in southern Vietnam, which I did a few years ago. Sliding down the sand dunes on a sledge is a whole bucket of fun and highly recommended.

Finally, Life’s A Beach hostel organizes afternoon boat trips where you’ll catch some fish and have a BBQ on a secluded beach.

Getting around in Quy Nhon

It’s possible to get around by bus or taxi, but I always like renting a scooter as it gives you the most freedom and flexibility to get around.

I rented mine at Rong Homestay in Qui Nhon city [map location]. It’s a guesthouse that also rents out a dozen or so scooters. The rate is about 100,000 dong a day. Expect to leave your ID card or some deposit for the rental.

Getting to Qui Nhon city

There are several ways of getting to Qui Nhon, from where you can take local transportation to the beaches:

Train

Quy Nhon is served by Dieu Tri train station on the main line, around 10km west of Quy Nhon. All reunification express trains stop at Dieu Tri. A bus from Dieu Tri train station to Quy Nhon costs about 5,000 dong. I took a taxi which got me there a bit faster (about 15 minutes).

Bus

There are some buses going from Da Nang or Nha Trang and these are probably your best bet if you’re travelling Vietnam north-to-south or vice versa.

There is also a direct bus from Ho Chi Minh City, though it takes a whopping 14 hours. If you’re going all this way, the reunification express may be a more comfortable option.

Plane

I used a flight to get out of Qui Nhon, as I was backtracking to Hanoi at the end of my Vietnam trip. Vietnam Airlines runs a number of domestic flights from Qui Nhon to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The nearest airport is Phu Cat Airport (UIH). Keep in mind it’s still 45 minutes to an hour from the centre of Qui Nhon. There is an airport shuttle bus, but you should leave sufficient time to get there.

6 Things To Know About Dry

1. What kind of environment is needed to make a cow grow old?

Perhaps this is the question of many people because normally, meat left for so long will decompose. But with cows getting older, the environment is a particularly important factor. The place to grow old cows must maintain stable factors such as temperature at about 1oC, humidity at about 70 to 80% and wind strength of 2-2.5 times/second and continuous double wind. Only then will the new meat withdraw water, hunt again without decomposing. During the aging process, the enzymes present in beef will break down, making the beef tender and succulent.

Beef has to go through a long process with drying standards to get quality finished products.

2. The crust is moldy but the meat doesn’t spoil

After the beef is dried by the Dry-aged method for 120 days, the outside will appear a layer of dry, hard white fungus that is even moldy. This is completely understandable because this bacteria has grown during the drying process, keeping the job of preserving the fresh meat inside. However, moldy meat does not mean spoiled meat, you just need to scrape off the outer layer of mold to see that the meat inside is still fresh with a dark red color and you can process it normally.

Beef when ‘dry enough’ will be shaved off the outer layer and enjoy the fresh meat inside.

3. When the age is over, how to preserve it?

Typically the dry-aged process lasts from 7 to 120 days. But when it’s old, but it’s not eaten right away, how will it be preserved? The way to preserve aged cows is that after preliminary processing, you should put the meat in a vacuum bag and keep it in the refrigerator at -40oC so that bacteria do not have a chance to multiply. When eating, you take it out to defrost and then process it as usual.

4. Price of Dry-aged Beef

The price of an aged beefsteak is higher than that of a regular beefsteak. Prices vary depending on the type of meat, but typically, a steak ranges from $45 to $60 compared to the $35 price of a regular steak. But this is acceptable because the whole process from drying to aging is a long process.

5. What is the most popular method of processing Dry-aged Beef?

The most common way of processing beef is to make beefsteak. Chefs can prepare dry-aged beef by many methods such as grilling, pan-frying, pan-frying. The seasoning for processing with aged cows is very simple, a little salt, pepper, butter or rosemary leaves is done, simply because the meat is already delicious, then it is only a rustic marinade to feel all the smell and taste.

Dry-aged beefsteak looks no different from regular beefsteak, but the taste inside is guaranteed to ‘explode’ the taste buds.

At first glance, the appearance of aged beefsteak is not too different from regular beefsteak, but when eaten, the taste of aged beef is different. When putting the piece of meat in the mouth, the beef taste explodes in the mouth, the aging process has brought the beef more richness and the meat is also softer. The most perfect processing level for aged beef is rare or medium rare, which means that the meat is still pink inside, maybe the new piece of meat is soft and sweet.

6. Why is it so delicious but not many places serve aged cows?

In fact, despite being praised by the followers of beef, not all places serve aged beef. There are two main reasons, that is, to age the cows, the restaurant will need a standard freezer or hong system. More importantly, not everyone likes the smell because of the age of cows.

Because the longer it is left, the stronger the taste of the meat and maybe for some people, this taste will be somewhat difficult to smell, when touching the tip of the tongue, it will not be as easy to accept as the usual fresh beef. That’s why it is recommended that old cows are only suitable for real beef enthusiasts, because the tender meat that melts in the mouth compared with the chat of a glass of sweet wine can make people forget all their lives.

Red vermicelli is a popular specialty of Dak Lak people, likened to the color of the basalt land, the name of the dish is based on the color of vermicelli fibers with an eye-catching red-orange highlighting broth.

Although there are some similarities with the noodle soup of the Southern people, the famous red vermicelli in the “coffee capital” has a large, firm vermicelli, similar to Banh Canh or Hue beef noodle soup, but slightly better, about the size of a chopstick. chewy and crunchy.

Different from sophisticated dishes such as Hanoi noodle soup, Quy Nhon fish noodle soup, Hue beef vermicelli or Can Tho vermicelli, Ban Me red vermicelli is extremely rustic, strange, and especially delicious. At first glance, red vermicelli is quite similar to crab vermicelli but crab bricks are made from pure crab meat, pork and minced fat, adding vegetables (or celery), bean sprouts, and of course indispensable. boiled quail eggs.

The special thing that makes the brand for red vermicelli in Buon Ma Thuot is the broth. The broth of Ban Me red vermicelli is simmered from crab meat and pork and beef bones, bringing a sweet taste that is easy to eat. The cook also cleverly added a little bit of crushed crab, shrimp and bacon, mixed with pepper, chopped onions and then molded into round balls to drop in to make the broth rich, delicious flavor. It cannot be confused with any other noodle dish.

Ban Me red vermicelli is selected extremely carefully, it is not possible to arbitrarily “choose in a hurry, any kind is fine”. The vermicelli used to cook must be big, chewy and fragrant.

In order for the vermicelli to be soft and to absorb the spices evenly, the cook must watch the time when the vermicelli is put into the pot, not too early, nor when the broth has boiled for too long. Vermicelli is cooked in a pot of broth for about 10 minutes so that the noodles are slightly expanded.

About the way of processing, pieces of crab bricks, minced meat and quail eggs are dropped in the pot. When making vermicelli to eat, then take them out and put them in a bowl and fill with broth. A special feature is that the longer it cooks, the more tender the crab and pork pieces become, the stronger the flavor and the sweeter the broth.

With the skillful hands of the processor, the bowl of red vermicelli becomes attractive with a variety of colors, extremely attractive flavors such as the reddish color of cashews, the bright red color of tomatoes cut in the shape of areca, green. the freshness of vegetables, adding the brown color of fish cakes, crab cakes, the white color of boiled quail eggs… looks both eye-catching and stimulates the taste buds!

The softer the pieces of crab and pork, the sweeter the broth (Photo: mia)

Red vermicelli is not served with common raw vegetables and herbs but must be water celery or kohlrabi, bean sprouts that are lightly blanched with some additives such as minced non-aromatic onions with crispy fried fat, more a little bit of purple shrimp paste, crushed chili and boiled quail eggs. After boiling, the quail eggs are peeled off, put in an attractive brick red floating broth.

Diners can squeeze more lemon, kumquat or vinegar to balance the taste and avoid being fed up because the bowl of noodles has many fillings. Take a sip of the broth, diners will see the sweet taste spreading down to the stomach. Then continue to pick up a piece of vermicelli with a piece of vegetable, add a piece of fried ball, and a greasy quail egg.

Many people say that red vermicelli is a variation, a harmonious blend of many familiar specialties such as Banh Chung or vermicelli, but obviously, Buon Me Thuot red vermicelli has its own delicious and rich flavor.

You can enjoy coffee in the Central Highlands at any time of the day, but if you want to eat red vermicelli, you have to know “time”. This is not a popular breakfast food for people, so in the morning, you can look for “red eyes” all over the shops, markets in the city, and you will not find anywhere selling this typical dish.

However, around 3-4 pm until late at night, wherever you go, you will see red vermicelli. From the shops on Le Duan and Nguyen Van Cu streets, to the smaller streets, then the street vendors in the alleys, in the market… There are shops that sell until 1-2 am, serving the food needs of workers. and night shift workers.
