The coastal city of Quy Nhon in the south-central province of Binh Dinh has recently been named as one of the top 10 travel destinations for winter holiday next year, voted by a group of staff reporters from the U.K leading newspaper The Guardian.    

In an article released by the leading newspaper at www.theguardian.com, international tourists, nature enthusiasts, and those who are not obsessed with busy schedule and repeated planning should try taking a tour to the coastal city for relaxation during the winter holiday thanks to its fresh air, warm sunshine, pristine beaches and palm-fringed sands.

According to The Guardian, Quy Nhon, situated between the bustling coastal hotspots of Nha Trang and Hoi An, is not quite a well-known tourist destination in Vietnam’s tourism map with a low number of tourists, but the coastal city is worthy to be on the list of the world’s 10 most spectacular destinations for a relaxed getaway.   

Despite the ups and downs of history, Quy Nhon has still preserved ancient cultural traits of Cham people; therefore, tourists are recommended to take a close look at Thap Doi (twin towers) featuring the unique Cham and Khmer architecture of the 11th and the 13th centuries.

This is not the first time Quy Nhon has earned plaudits from popular foreign travel sites and international community.

In 2015, the UK-based renowned travel site Rough Guides also put the sunny beach town into Southeast Asia’s three best travel destinations thanks to picturesque natural landscapes, exotic local cuisine and cultural and historical values.

Vietnam is becoming ever more popular for international visitors. Last year, the country welcomed more than 10 million foreigners visiting the country, and earned total tourism revenue of VND400 trillion (around US$17.7 billion). International tourist arrivals to the country in the first ten months of this year rose 28.1% from the year-ago period to 10.4 million, according to data of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT).
