Red Sand Dunes of Mui Ne


    The Red Sand Dunes of Mui Ne are simply stunning, they have to be seen to be believed. So many people come here during the day, see the sand and with a ‚Äúwhatever‚ÄĚ, leave. This is not the way to do it at all. You simply have to come here in the late afternoon, and wait for the sunset. It is fabulous.

    The sand, already red enough starts to get deeper and redder, the sky adopts an incredible rich dark blue colour which intern brings out oranges and ochres in the sand. All this mystic magic is going on as the sea adds it own sparkle to proceedings. As soon as it starts it’s all over as the sun slips over the horizon into the darkness.

    Mui Ne is a wonderful little place, just along the coast and inland from it ever so slightly bigger brother Phan Thiet. In fact the two towns almost enjoy a shared existence. This is one of the lesser known of Vietnam’s resort towns. There is not much to do here, and that is the appeal. This is not some sort of over developed playground, it is quiet, beautify and long may it remain so.

    The Red Sand Dunes of Mui Ne are large, creating an almost Saharan environment for holiday makers who com here in pretty big numbers. The presence of the sea though, soon tells tale that this is not a desert area but simply terrific coastal sand dunes, in a very beautiful setting.
