Introducing Sa Huynh
Sa Huynh is a popular lunchstop for truckers and transport heading north or south on Hwy 1. There are lots of com ga places lining the highway, many of which offer decent seafood. Expect to pay around 50,000d a main dish.
Approaching the bay, there is a beautiful semicircular beach, but sadly it doesn’t look quite so exotic at close quarters due to a surfeit of litter. The little town is also known for its salt marshes and salt-evaporation ponds, as well as a pungent nuoc mam (fish sauce) industry. Archaeologists have unearthed remains from the Dong Son civilisation dating from the 1st century AD in the vicinity of Sa Huynh.
Sa Huynh is on Hwy 1, about 60km south of Quang Ngai (25,000d; 1½ hours by bus) and 114km north of Quy Nhon (40,000d; two hours by bus).
