I had a chance to travel Mui Ne in 2 days with my family. That was very fund and memoriable. I really impressed with the sand dunes there. So I think I should share my experience and photos.

Mui Ne is about 4-5 hours bus ride from HCM to the east. The south China sea makes this small beach resort a tourist destination. It is quite small but hotels, massage parlours, spas, restaurants and other establishments that serves the tourists are all present.

There are a lot of destination you should visit: The beautiful tropical beaches lined with groves of swaying palm trees, immense Saharan-style sand dunes meandering for kilometres in colours of red, yellow and white, tall mountains with bamboo rainforests and pristine waterfalls, and deep red canyons parted by twisting streams. But with litmed time, We can’ visit all. So we decide visit sand dunes (in the first day) because Mui Ne is only places have sand dunes and (go to Cham Tower in the last day).

We hired a jeep and drove past a large fishing village with hundreds of boats anchored in the sea, all waiting to go out and catch their evening’s batch of fish. The view was very nice and overlooked not only the sea and fishing boats, but also the beach and fishing village lined along the shore.

We went to white sand dune at about 2 PM (It took about 25 minute drive from the fishing village. Far from there, you can see the dunes range from gold to pure white. It was breaktaking scenery. The main part of the white sand dunes that has large, high drifts of sand with no vegetation at all, looked like a mini version of the Sahara desert. The expanse of land around the dunes was very sparse and still mostly made up of sand, and it stretched for miles around. When we got to the most picturesque spot in the white sand dunes, we saw the huge dunes surrounded by a large lake and a small field of pines trees.

My father and my brother swam in Bau Ba Lake, I and my darling climbed to the top of the White Sand Dunes and slided downhill. That was amazing and fun.

My mother prepared foods and we had a delicious meals and have perfect picnic.

We stayed at a beach front bungalow called Kim Ngan. When night fell, there was pitch darkness. I knew there is supposed to be no civilization and it is just water that existed. I scanned the horizon and there were lights and movement and it looked like a village. All the fishermen were out making their livery. We walked along beaches and see the local activities.

The next day, We woke up very early and watched the sun rise. I’ve seen sun rise in may places but I’ve never feeling happy like this (with magnificent scenery, with my lovely family).

After having a breakfast, we drove to visit the Po Shanu Cham Towers; it has a view of the famous candy color cemetery. I am not sure why they call it that but I think it is because the tombs are in rows and have multiple colors. There were rows of beach houses and resorts on the south side of P Nguyen Dunh Street and further east is Huynh Thuc Khang.

There is also a small village nearby called Phan Thiet where the towne centre creates a small fishing harbour. I witnessed the fish catching process where the large spindle was spun to draw in the cords of the large net that was raised. There was a fisherman in the middle of the net balancing on a bopping five foot diameter basket made of palm and coconut.

Hanoi History

Hanoi history took a fresh turn in the beginning of the 15th century, when the Chinese Ming Dynasty wrested control of Vietnam. Under them, Dong Do underwent another change of name and this time it was called Dong Quan (meaning Eastern Gateway). Of course, the Chinese occupation did not last long and Vietnam once again gained freedom through the efforts of the founder of the Le Dynasty, Le Loi in 1428. Under Le Dynastic rule, the name of Don Quan was changed to Dong Kinh (meaning Eastern Capital). Dominance of the Le Dynasty continued for almost three centuries (of course, there had been some change of guards in between). The major dynasty... Read more »
