Dumb idea or not? Beach break location.

Hi,

I have concluded I am trying to pack too much in to our trip, so have reluctantly taken Nha Trang off the agenda and allocated those days to extend our time in Hanoi, Hue and Hoi An.

There would still be enough time for us to have a 2 night mini break before we hit HCMC. I was looking at the map and saw Quy Nhon. It looks like a good place to just rest, but does involve travelling by car - we have kids - which might defeat the purpose.

So my question, we are staying in Hoi An town for 4 or so nights, would be it silly to then go to one of the nice beach hotels of Hoi An for that mini break...or make the trek to Quy Nhon...or forget it all.

Thanks!

Hey,

My vote goes to staying in Hoi An as well. Personally I wouldn't bother with the hassle of packing up and changing hotels in Hoi An when the beach is only a few kms away. Either extend at the hotel in town and spend afternoons out at the beach or if you really want a nice hotel right on the beach and do nothing but resort & beach you could stay in Danang

Bbi ....... I am so sorry you eliminated Nha trang from your trip. Nowadays It is probably one of the best destinations in Vietnam, but it is sometimes still talked down by people who perhaps had a bad experience before the changes.... Maybe next time. Nha Trang is the best beach destination. There is nowhere in Vietnam with softer and whiter sand than the south east corner of Phu Quoc.

I'm sorry Owee! It's totally not anything against NT, I just was being too ambitious. I want to see everything so it is hard for me to let any part of this trip go...sob.
