Quy Nhon to Relocate 3 Hotels to Make Room for Public Beach

Other high-rise buildings on the east side of An Duong Vuong and Xuan Dieu streets along Quy Nhon's waterfront are also being moved in the near future.

Binh Dinh provincial authorities recently announced that three big hotels — including the Hai Au, Hoang Yen and Binh Duong, located along the beach of Quy Nhon Bay — are going to be relocated, Tuoi Tre reports. In a meeting of Quy Nhon authorities, a delegate from Le Loi Ward insisted that these hotels are blocking the view of the beach. 

According to Ho Quoc Dung, director of the Binh Dinh People's Committee, although the three hotels have been there for a long time and are familiar to many tourists, both authorities and many residents in Quy Nhon support moving them elsewhere to return the beach back to the public.

"All construction projects blocking the view to the beach will eventually be relocated to create more space for the beach city. Binh Dinh provincial authorities have received the green light from the Ministry of Defense to move Binh Duong Hotel. The relocation is undergoing the compensation and auditing process. For Hai Au and Hoang Yen hotels, the province will determine how to move forward based on the land rental contracts with these businesses," Dung added, according to the news source.

Besides relocating the hotels, Quy Nhon is moving forward with upcoming plans to develop the areas surrounding Xuan Dieu and An Duong Vuong streets. An art exhibition space, monument, park upgrades, modern lighting system and the expansion and opening of new streets towards the beach are among the planned highlights.
