Mui Ne is a town 4 to 5 hours away from Ho Chi Minh. We hired a private car, driver, and guide from Ho Chi Minh that took us to this wonderful coastal town.
Its main road is lined with resorts, restaurants, souvenir shops, and other establishments.
We originally intended to stay at Sailing Club Mui Ne, but it was fully-booked. So, we ended up staying at Tien Dat Beach Resort & Spa, which turned out to be a good move as it is a relatively good but cheap resort.
We got the Beach Front Deluxe Room, right by the pool. It has a spacious balcony with this view.
This is how the hotel looks like when viewed from the beach. Our room is the one on the lower left corner of the photo.
This is what you'll see from the resort lobby.
Vintage scooters are lined up just outside the resort.
The resort at night.
Bars and restaurants are just a few steps away.
Our guide recommended this restaurant. According to him, this is one of the best seafood restaurants in the area.
Early morning the next day, we visited Mui Ne's fishing village.
We made friends with the locals. They even gave each of us a gift even if we didn't buy anything from them.
We had a short stop at the Pink Hill to take photos.
We then went to the Red Sand Dunes where tons of locals flocked as if we're celebrities HAHA
The kids invited us to try sand sledding down the dunes, and of course we agreed!
The place is so amazing that we spent most of our time taking photos.
Our guide brought us after to the Fairy Stream. The water appears golden brown because of the color of the sand.
Had a sumptuous meal at a seafood restaurant with this magnificent view before heading back to Ho Chi Minh.
