Further more after the Red Dunes you should continue to this beautiful red canyon. Just stop by the main road and take a stroll down the canyon. Take some water with you if you plan to take a long walk.
You probably knows that already, if you came all the way here you probably here for the great sea and beaches. The beach resort of Mui Ne is between Phan Thiet and the village of Mui Ne. There are all the tourists hotels and resorts with the beautiful sandy beaches.
1. Rocks underneath, sand sweeping around your feet, water passing through your legs...
what an experience in such a natural environment.
2. Guarantee you will sleep very well that day
3. Not only that, as you walk along the Fairy Stream, you dont know what's in front of you where there are beautiful scenes of the different red and white rock formation on the left awaiting you to pass them and on the right, they are all greeneries... it is so contrasting to the left.
4. Fresh water crabs in the stream finding their way back home.
1. Can you imagine yourself watching the sun goes up and down over the desert?
you can choose from either one. The RED and the other WHITE.
2. Must compare at least 3 companes for land packages 0f 5 hrs @US$16 inclusive Jeep + driver before you get the best offer.
3. Land package : White and red sand dune, Little Red Canyon, Fishing Village, Fairy Stream.
4. Come and enjoy and relax at Mui Ne. Best time to go Nov to April (dry season).
Although we are coming from a land which does not lack sand and sand dunes (Israel), we did enjoy the red sand dunes of Mui Ne.
The sand dunes are easily accessible on foot from a point on the main road. You can reach this departure point by public bus, xe om (motorbike taxi) or regular taxi; there is no need for a 4WD vehicle.
Try to time your visit towards sunset, it's very pretty then. Part of the scene is also the columns of visitors (locals and tourists alike) trudging along the dunes like columns of ants, with long shadows under the setting sun. You can watch the video I uploaded (Phan Thiet page). I'll upload some photos as well later today.
If you want solitude, don't come at sunset but at sunrise: it's supposed to be very pretty, with the sun rising over the South China Sea, and with hardly any tourists then!
We only came to this place because we were partially bored and it was not very far from where we stayed. With a tiny stream and also some nice colored sand and rocks at the side, it is a nice place for pictures.
Beware of kids coming to you voluntarily to become your guide and explaning things to you. We had kid stick to us like glue while we were just walking around only to find out that he is asking for money. Try to brush them off if you are not interested at the beginning.
One of the highlights of Mui Ne, upon arrival you will be swarmed by kids and touts asking you to rent their body boards to slide down the sand dunes. I remember them asking for a couple of US dollars, not much but if you really want to try, its a small price to pay. A nice place for pictures as well...
Same with red sanddunes, the white sanddunes is quite a distance away from the Mui Ne beach area and the sand are light brown/white in color. Do this only if you have time. If not, visiting the red sand dunes will suffice.
We went on a town tour with a guy named Mr. Binh. He took us several places, but the first place we stopped at was a fishing site on the beach. There were lots of fish, shrimp and many boats...women collecting them to take to market and kids of the back of wagon pulled by yaks.
While it might not sound like fun, it's quite a thrill especially when your headed directly for water at the bottom! Everyone here has recommended it, it's quite a scene with sand dunes as far as the eye can see while you look behind you and there is large lake with water! Just remember to bring a bottle of water with you, as hiking uphill through sand is extremely tiring!
Have you ever been in elysium? There's 1 place in Mui Ne like that in Mui Ne-Phan Thiet, RED SAND CANYON. Let's go there and discover yourselves, ok? Just rent a jeep with about US$20/half day and tell the driver that Red Sand Canyon is one of the places you want him to take you to. Or simply rent a bicyle/motobike and ...go :)
