Qui Nhon

Getting there and away

Train

Qui Nhon has a train station, but it's at the end of a spur that connects to the main line 15 km north at Dieu Tri, with is the main station for the area. There is one train a day directly from Qui Nhon that stops at Dieu Tri at 18:45, costs 5,000 VND and takes 45 minutes. A good way to go, but there are very few train departures from Dieu Tri that make it convenient.

To get to Dieu Tri, head out of town on Tran Hung Dao until you reach the intersection after 9 km. The town of Dieu Tri is 6 kilometres further north on Highway 1A -— you can't miss it. A taxi should cost about 70,000 VND and takes about twenty minutes (due to traffic).

Departures from Dieu Tri head north and south, as they do all along the line. Below we give the lowest possible prices available (for the TN trains that means a hard seat, for the SE trains, a soft seat with fan) and the highest—a first class sleeper, where available.

    Bus

    Qui Nhon's bus station is located at the west end of Tay Son St, at the southern end of town. A mototaxi should cost about 15,000 VND from anywhere else in town. There are at least five different bus companies all operating out of booths at the station. In general, Ho Chi Minh buses cost from 120,000 to 155,000 and depart at 6:30, 7;00, 17:00, 17:25, 18:00, 18:25, 18:30, 19:15, 19:25. The trip takes 10 hours. 16-seat vans are fine for short trips, but brutal for long ones. The ordinary buses run by Thuan Thao are cheaper, but notoriously packed to the gills.
