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.
I took the sunrise time to visit the sand dunes. Our driver picked us up at dawn. And when I finally see the sand dunes: the endless sand dunes met the blue skies or sometimes you can see the sea with green lush of the forest tries to peeking out in a distance. It was absurdly beautiful!
Maybe my words could not tell you further but hope some pics below will speak to you perfectly!
