Binh Dinh

 The heart of the province is Quy Nhon City which is 1,065km from Hanoi and 649km from Ho Chi Minh City. Binh Dinh is adjacent to Quang Ngai Province to the north, Gia Lai Province to the west, and Phu Yen Province to the south. It has a long coastline of approximately 100km, and includes both small and big islands off-shore.

Weather in Binh Dinh is typically tropical monsoon with an average temperature of 27o C. The total annual rainfall of this province is about 1300-2700mm, and the rainy season often begins in September, lasting until December. Binh Dinh is Vietnam’s storm capital, having spectacular typhoons and thundershowers from September to November. In addition, terrain in Binh Dinh is a complex mixture of mountains, plains, lakes and rivers.   

According to the national census in 2009, Binh Dinh had a total population of 1.5 million people, equal to 247people/km2. People in Binh Dinh are kind, hospitable and especially good at martial arts. It is so well known for this that the province is also called “The Land of Martial Arts”, and is the origin of many famous fighting techniques in Vietnam, including the Tay Son style. This area also conserves many traditional cultural features from thousands of years ago.

 

Ba Mountain

Situated South of Dam Thuy Pond in Phu Cat District, Ba Mountains (also called Pho Chinh Mountains) is considered one of the most magnificent mountains in Binh Dinh province. The whole area of Ba Mountains consists of more than 60 mounts with diverse height and shapes. Ba Mountains recall to many a magnetic and alluring nature picture of mounts, interspersed with lush valleys and watered by numerous mountain streams. The combination of all these elements makes the place an ideal location for eco-tourism and adventure travel.

Visitors coming here cannot leave without visiting Vong Phu Stones (Waiting for Husband). This natural masterpiece consists of a high stone standing side by side with a smaller one, identical to one adult next to her child. For hundred years, local people have spread to their descendants a sad legend of Vong Phu: the stones embody a young wife and her son, both of whom had waited for the husband for a very long time until they all became rocks. The stones have ever since been used to symbolize Vietnamese women’s fidelity in love and family.

 

Duong Long Tower

This is a historical relic that represents the most prosperous time of Cham Pa civilization in the 12th Century.  It is one of the most beautiful Cham Pa Towers in central Vietnam. Although they have been damaged many times in the past by treasure hunters and the local people, the towers still radiate an impressive beauty. Duong Long Towers consist of three spires: the central one is 24m high, and the two towers on either side of it are 22m. The attraction of the towers is not only the outstanding height compared to the other Cham Pa buildings in Binh Dinh, but also the carved stone designs which weave throughout the complex. Duong Long Towers were created by bricks and the corners were connected by stones with huge engraved plates that show sacred Cham Pa animals such as Garuda, Elephant and Eagle. The main door faces east towards the Sun, and was built using 1.5m tall stones. The upper half of the tower was built by similarly large stones that overlap each other precisely, displaying the ingenuity and skill of the Cham Pa people. The wall is decorated with the carved images of monks in high-top hats, dancing and singing.  The top of the towers are crowned by lotus petals rising to the sky.

 

Ghenh Rang

Ghenh Rang is one of the most attractive destinations in Binh Dinh, located 3km south east of Quy Nhon City. It has magnificent natural scenery with mountains, forests, beaches and islands that can’t be seen in such a combination anywhere else. At the south west are high mountains that reach the ocean, and from these mounts you can survey great distances of natural beauty: the Lion’s Head rock that leaps to reach the sea; the silent Waiting Statue; the Lying Elephant and Bear rocks that guard the beaches, and Chong Islet which seems to be light, but is stable in the heavy storms.

On the north east of Ghenh Rang is a blue ocean that covers the white sandbanks with cool water and a stunning view. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Binh Dinh, and has greeted bathers in search of relaxation for many years. In 1927, Bao Dai, the last king of Vietnam, built a villa where his family could come and relax.  He reserved the whole beach for just Queen Nam Phuong, his most beloved wife. It is because of this that the beach is now called Queen Beach.  From the view on the top of the mountain, the beach looks like a large turquoise field filled with jade and granite eggs. And so, apart from “Queen’s Beach”, the local people also call it “Egg Stone” beach.
