Located in southern Vietnam just 200 kilometres northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, Mui Ne is a popular vacation spot for travellers wishing to take a beach break during their trip to Vietnam. Despite its development, Mui Ne has retained the spirit of a typical fishing village and is a perfect destination to better discover Vietnamese culture in only 2 or 3 days.

The beginners will be able to do an introductory course supervised by a certified francophone teacher while experienced kitesurfers will be able to rent equipment and enjoy discovering this incredible spot that is well-known throughout the world.
Another great attraction of Mui Ne is the beautiful dune landscapes that are in the area. A tune of the Sahara in Vietnam that surprises foreign visitors every time. There are two dune formations, one is red and the other is white. Visiting them can be an opportunity for a half or full-day Jeep tour. The red dunes are 11 km from Mui Ne and when climbing to their summits, you can enjoy a superb panorama view, especially at sunset. It is possible to rent local toboggans to make some descents on the slopes of these red dunes. The white dunes are 35 kilometres from Mui Ne. Getting there is an opportunity to have a beautiful ride through the magnificent countryside.
The white dunes are a particularly photogenic site which is very well highlighted by the lotus lake that spreads at the foot of these elegant sand formations. Enjoy exploring the dunes and then on the way, you can discover the canyon of the Fairy's spring. It’s a natural site dazzling between flaming dunes and lush vegetation that surprises you with its vibrant colour of orange and the consistency of its rock. The effect is magical! This is a landscape worthy of the most beautiful fairy tale that gave this river its name.
On the morning of the second day in Mui Ne, make the effort to get up early to witness the beautiful sight of the return of the fishermen who came out at night on their colourful traditional wooden boats. In the beautiful light of the sunrise, you can see the locals hovering around the boats to unload the many fish caught that night. The valuable merchandise will then be delivered to the market where it will be sold. Then you can go to the local market to enjoy its unique atmosphere! A market made for seafood lovers where it is possible to taste some tasty local specialities.
