Despite the large number of people, the beach area does not have a situation of jostling or loss of security and order. People come to swim in the sea with excitement because a year ago this activity was interrupted due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

Currently, Quy Nhon is in the peak tourist season. The weather in this city is sunny, with little rain, very suitable for activities on the beach. This year, the Lunar New Year is close to two weekends, so many families leave work early to come to Quy Nhon to travel.

In addition to bathing in the sea, Binh Dinh people also welcome the Lunar New Year with simple offerings of cakes, sticky rice, and fruits.
