BINH DINH CULTURAL DISCOVERY
Witness dynasty and wonder meet while on Vietnam heritage tours.
Home to the Quang Trung Emperor and the Tay Son Dynasty, Binh Dinh Province is a destination infused with rich history and culture. A visit to the Quang Trung Museum offers an insight into one of Vietnam’s most celebrated leaders and the youngest of the ruling three brothers of the Tay Son Dynasty. The museum grounds also house a 300-year old tamarind tree and an ancient pure water well, which is said to bring good fortune when you drink from it. Catch a performance of Tay Son battle drums and traditional martial arts, for which Quy Nhon is well-known.
After the museum, visit one of the Cham tower ruins which lie across the province and hold centuries of stories within their bricks from the origin of the Champa Kingdom in Vietnam in the 2nd Century.
Built in the late 1600s, next is a stop at Thap Thap Pagoda, also known as the pagoda of ten towers and one of the most famous Buddhist centres in the country. It has been named by Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as "a national cultural and historical site".
At the end of your morning cultural experience, relax at a local restaurant and enjoy a traditional Banh Xeo, the famous Quy Nhon sizzling crèpe, filling with prawns, beef, or just plenty of fresh herbs and vegetables.
