The train trip took about 5 hours to Dieu Tri station, from Danang, which is only about an hour from Hoi An... then a short taxi ride to the beach side town of Quy Nhon. I was taught that if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all...so I won't say much about the actual train, except that the people were friendly and welcoming.
The taxi driver recommended the Saigon Hotel, which was a little above our budget. The receptionist directed us to the Y Linh Hotel, one block north and about half the price. We were offered the choice of two rooms - one which was massive and one smaller, but with a huge balcony, which we chose, and had views of the beach and esplanade.
Quy Nhon was a nice surprise, with very few tourists and very little English spoken. After a short stroll, Stray and I found a local cafe/restaurant, where plenty of locals were dining. The food was fantastic and we were a bit of a novelty and entertainment for the other patrons. My migraine headache did not make the experience very enjoyable. We had an early night, as I felt like death warmed up.
