    BICYCLING UP AND DOWN SLOPING STREETS

    by NeverGrowOld Written Apr 12, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do not forget to rent a bicycle when you are in Phan Thiet. You won't have other chance to ride along the beautiful and peaceful beaches or simply just move up and down sloping streets like that. Trust me, you can both relax and ...do exercise by doing this.

    BREATHE IN AND OUT

    by NeverGrowOld Written Apr 13, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those who cannot swim (like me ;-) , doing exercise in early morning on the beach is a good decision. Breathe in and out. Let fresh sea air overwhelm your poor lung which has been spoiled by air polution in city. Now, breathe in....and out.....in.....and out...

    There are lots of tourist cshop along Nguyen Dink Chieu all offering a similar tour. We booked with ASC Travel .They took us on a private tour around the area . We were picked up at our hotel in the morning around 9AM returning around Noon . Even though our driver didn't speak English it was a good trip.
    We went to the Red and White Sand Dunes ,the Fishing Village ,Lotus Lake and The Fairy Stream.
    The cost was $25.00 for both of us.

    The Blue Boats of the Fishing Village

    The view of the Blue Boats was beautiful from the hilltop. We were greeted by a little local girl selling pearls. She spoke perfect English and I was impressed with her keen sales ability. She wore a little Canada Flag pin given to her by a passing tourist.So endearing was she, I think of her often . I feel certain she will do OK.At least I hope.

    Across the road at the top of the hill is a guy offering a boat tour around the area for $5.00 each. Depending on the boat it could be a fun thing to do.

    Its true you smelthe Fishing Village of Mui Ne before you see.The stench comes from the drying fish used in the famed Fish Sauce. Aparently 17million liters of the stuff is produced annually and is shipped allover Asia.
    We saw ( and smelled) the huge pots of it brewing when we took a walk to the Fairy Stream.

    Red Sand Dunes

    On the way back to Mui Ne we stopped at e The Red Sand Dunes. These are similar to the White Sand Dunes but not quite as massive. We are enthusiastically greeted by a couple of youngsters hoping to rent us a plastic sled to coast down the hills. I guess they didn't notices my heat exhausted face !!

    This time I ventured even less than at the White Sand Dunes and stayed under a tree for shade.

    Fairy Stream

    by kenningst Updated Aug 25, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    As we drive along the coast the scenery gradually changes .It becomes very arrid with scrubby shrubs and soon we come upon massive white sand dunes.It reminds of scenes fromthe Egyptian desert!
    We climbed only a short way as the sun was beating down and the going got tough.
    Braver (younger) visitors explored the big dunes with buggies and some even slid down on plastic boards.

    Visit the Fishing village of Mui Ne

    by Gili_S Updated Oct 30, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most interesting sites in this place are actually away by the sea & the countryside so the following tips are about those and the last few tips (page II) will be more of the local things to do in Phan Thiet town itself.
    So the first place to visit is the Fishing village of Mui Ne, it is just about 10-15 minutes from Phan Thiet.

    The white dunes Oasis/Lake

    When you arrive to the white dunes, you have the option to walk there, I notice some uses local guide but that is not really necessary, just walk pass the woods and proceed further into the great white open.... after you climb the dune you can continue into this oasis/pond and small lake around. Reserve the 2 hour if you plan this whole trip, have water with you and you can even have romantic picnic if you wish :)

    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.
