Absurdly Beautiful: Mui Ne Sand Dunes

Personal Notes

After almost 6 hours on the bus from Saigon, we arrived in Mui Ne at 9 PM. It was already dark. Checked in at our hostel then we went to search for any food. In a second I know that Mui Ne has way different of tone compare to Saigon. Mui Ne is laid back and very relaxing beach town. I feel the holiday-vacation atmosphere. Tourists is normally everywhere and there is no typically Saigon hustle and bustle of course.

My main activities in Mui Ne was to see its Sand dunes. Coming from tropical country, never saw any Sand Dunes for my whole life, I had no expectation on what will I see in Mui Ne. Best time to visit the sand dunes would be either in Sunrise or Sunset when the temperature is not too high. I believe that each hostels have the sand dunes tour, just make sure that the price is normally fair. You need to get 4WD if you want to explore the sand dunes.

Travel Notes
Why I go to Vietnam is all because of the spontaneous attitude toward the budget airline fair price and a friend invitation, a great opportunity combine with a tempting offer. And suddenly I have booked the ticket ^_^

Are you sure to have a holiday in Vietnam? Don’t you worried about the war? Yup that was my mom first reaction when I told her about this plan. The fact that Vietnam is famous because of the war which inspired some of great movies. But now Vietnam is an interesting destination for travel, because of its rich historical sites and nature beauty.
