Pre-arrival information

 

HOW TO GET TO THE SCHOOL SITE

People coming from abroad can go to Quy-nhon via international airports in Hanoi or Ho-Chi-Minh city or Danang from where they can fly to Quynhon (Phu Cat airport) or travel by train or bus to Quy-nhon.

A round-trip train seating ticket costs from about 1,000,000 VND (50 USD) from Hanoi or from 650,000 VND (32 USD) from HCM city.

To go from the airport Phu Cat (about 40 km from Quynhon) to Quynhon one can take a taxi or an airport mini-bus (cheaper):

-         A taxi trip to the school hotel (see below) costs about 300,000 – 350,000 VND (15 – 17 USD),

-         A trip with an airport minibus to Quynhon (bus stop) costs about 50,000 VND per person.  A taxi trip from the bus stop to the school hotel costs about 25,000-30,000 VND but one can ask the bus driver to stop in a place nearest the hotel.   

The rail station of Quynhon is about 10 km from the school hotel: a taxi trip to the school hotel would cost about 120,000 – 150,000 VND.
