As far as living in Quy Nhon goes, here is a review from a current teacher:
“Quy Nhon is pretty much my dream come true as far as living in Vietnam. I enjoy the students I teach at Acccess, and communication with school leadership is open and positive. If there are any issues, the staff is always willing to work with teachers to solve them. The city has a very local feel, with nice restaurants, endless juice stands, beautiful parks, and an awesome beach which stretches across all of downtown. The traffic and pollution are minimal compared to other parts of Vietnam, and I can cycle anywhere in town within 20 minutes. Best of all, if you like the outdoors and the ocean, this is definitely the spot for you. There are stunning beaches, cliffs, coves, islands, fishing villages, etc. to explore in either direction as far as you care to go. On days off I often snorkel, take boat trips, read/rest on beautiful empty beaches, or have sunset bbqs with friends… and I eat great fresh seafood numerous times each week. There are also loads of hiking trails and hills to climb with beautiful views, and plenty of 12th century Cham towers in the area if you’re into historic architectural sites. If you enjoy nighlife, however, this may not be the best spot for you… while there are bars and clubs in town, this is a relatively small city. Also, there are few foreign food choices in town… one sushi restaurant, a Korean place, a hostel that serves decent hamburgers, etc, and a mediocre pizza place… so if you are dependent on Western food this also may not be the place for you. My husband and I absolutely love it here though! We love the local food, and the low cost of living, not to mention all the wonderful people we’ve gotten to know. I cannot recommend Access English and Quy Nhon enough. I am thoroughly enjoying my time here!”
She would like to share her experience with you so we can give you her email if you want to know more! :) Just ask for it when you apply!
We are looking forward to meeting you!
