Leg No. 13:  Bồng Sơn-Quy Nhơn (90 km).  

You will leave Bồng Sơn on southbound Highway 1A and bike toward the towns of Phù Mỹ, Ngô Mây, Bình Ðịnh, and Quy Nhơn.

The nice thing about biking on Highway 1A is that the road runs near proximity with the ocean and is thus situated near sea level.  Therefore, it is generally flat or rolling.  There is very little climbing on the trans-Vietnam bike ride.  As you travel from North down to South Vietnam, Highway 1A lies between mountain ranges on the right and the Pacific Ocean on the left.  On this leg, the town of Quy Nhơn, where you rest for the night, does not lie on Highway 1A, but in the near proximity of it.  Be careful not to miss this town as there is little or no accommodation along the way until the next town, Sông Cầu, which is another 40-50 km away.  You may have to end up camping for the night, if you happen to pass Quy Nhơn.  Quy Nhơn is a town situated next to the ocean.  The beaches are stunning and there are many places to stay.  The seafood in Quy Nhơn is fresh and quite good.
