Quy Nhon among top 9 places to get off tourist trail: Rough Guides

The US travel guide Rough Guides has cited Quy Nhon- a coastal city in the central province of Binh Dinh - as top 9 places to get off tourist trail in Southeast Asia.

According to its website roughguides.com, few tourists have stopped in Quy Nhon, where the main industry remains fishing and the long sandy beaches are well preserved. During the rule of the Cham dynasty this was an important commercial centre and evidence of this remains in the imposing Banh It towers on a hilltop just north of town.

Rough Guides suggested that visitors should head up Quy Nhon by xeom (motorcycle taxi) for sweeping views over the unspoiled countryside before returning to town for a seafood supper.
Rounding on the top 9 are Umphang and KoAdang of Thailand, Tiny Kratie of Cambodia, Champasak of Laos, Hsipaw of Myanmar, Camigiun Island  of the Philippines, TanjungPuting national park of Indonesia, and PerhentianBesar of Malaysia.
