Around Quang Ngai


Son My (My Lai)

The site of the My Lai Massacre is located 14km from central Quang Ngai. To get there from town. head north (towards Danang) on Đ Quang Trung (National hwy 1)and across the long bridge over the Tra Khuc River. Metrs fromt he northern end of the bridge, you will come to a triangular concrete stele indicating the way to the Son My Memorial. Turn right (eastward, paralel to the river) on the dirt road and continue for 12km. The road to Son My passes through particularly beautiful countryside: rice paddies, manioc pathes and vegetable dardens shaded by casuarinas and ecucalyptus trees.

The Son My memorial is set in a park where the Xom Lang subhamlet once stood (see the boxed text “My Lai Massacre”). Around it, among the trees and rice paddies, are graves of some of the victims, buried in family group. Near the memorial is a museum (admission 10,000d), which opened in 1992.

If you don’t have a car, the best way to get to Son My district from Quang Ngai is to hire a xe om near the bus station or along Đ Quang Trung.

Bien Khe Ky Beach

Bien Khe Ky Beach (Baibien Khe Ky) is long, secluded beach of fine sand 17km from Quang Ngai and several kilomatres east of the Son My Memorial. The beach streches for many kilomatres along a long, thin casuarina lined spit of sand. It is separated from the mainland by Song Kinh Giang, a body of water about 150m inland from the beach.


tel 055

Sa Huynh is a little seaside town with a beautiful semicircular beach bordered by rice paddies and coconut palms. The town is also known for its salt marshes and salt evaporation ponds.

Arcaheologists have unearthed remains of the Dong Son Civilisation dating from the 1st century AD in the vicinity of Sa Huynh.

Places to Stay and Eat

Sa huynh Hotel (tel 860311, fax 822836; singles with fan US$8; doubles with fan/air-con US$10/15), the only place to stay in town, is a crumbling concrete hotel right on the beach. Other than the pleasant beachside setting, there’s little to recommend the place.

The state run restaurant on the hoetl grounds is depressing and the service is poor. Fortunately, there are a number of a small roadside restaurant-cafes a few hundred metres away, out on National Hwy 1. One of the best is called Vinh.

Getting There & away

Train Some nonexpress trains stop at the Sa Huynh train station (Ga Sa Huynh), but it will be slow going.

Car & Motorbike Sa Huynh is on National Hwy 1, about 114km north of Qui Nhon and 60km south of Quang Ngai.
