Where to Shop In Mui – The Top Shopping Attractions in Mui Ne

Mui Ne started off as a humble coastal village and has rapidly evolved into a resort town in the present day. In addition to much natural beauty, there are some lucrative shopping experiences to be had.


Phan Thiet Central Market

This market is one of the biggest in the country, and due to the loads of fresh seafood available here, is in close proximity to many resorts in Mui Ne such as the Anantara Mui Ne Resort. There are literally hundreds of stalls to be seen here, showcasing all the best local produce you could expect to find in Mui Ne and Vietnam in general. To experience the market in all its glory, its best to take a visit in the early morning, when all the stalls are absolutely loaded with goods. Some of the best souvenirs to take home are found here, such as Nuoc Cham, a name used to refer to a variety of Vietnamese dipping sauces. Then there are ceramic goods, various candies and textiles to be bought at the market. When it comes to seafood, you will discover everything from usual items such as shrimps and squids, to more exotic delicacies such as snails. There are also various cooked items to be had such as banh xeo (a Vietnamese pancake), and gui cuon (freshly prepared spring rolls).


Mui Ne Handicraft Market

Commonly referred to as 'Mui Ne Handicraft' this is the best place to find the humble yet strikingly beautiful creations of underprivileged Vietnamese folk. There's even a section where you can see children with impaired hearing working on items such as jewellery, handbags and clothing using traditional mechanisms such as looms. There's even a tailor who will produce a specialised outfit an incredibly reasonable price. If you're looking for memorable items to take home with you, select some of the many sand-paintings showcasing scenes from Mui Ne life. The market is connected to a popular Vietnamese restaurant where you can indulge in incredible local dishes, as well as some coffee.


Ham Tiem Market

For an uncompromising Vietnamese market experience that will manage to keep you away from the scorching heat, there's Ham Tiem market. Unlike the other markets, Ham Tiem is quite new, but regardless of that, you will be able to find all the goods that are featured in a usual Vietnamese market. The most sought after goods are of course, seafood, so you will find plenty of that here as well, along with a decent selection of meat. There's a wide selection of fruit on offer, showcasing a kaleidoscope of colour. You will also find the usual candies that are perfect for souvenirs such as coconut cakes, banana sweets and peanut brittle.


RD Wine Castle

Incredibly, this place is literally a castle. One will never expect to see a massive western influenced castle in Vietnam, so this is definitely one of the most essential places to visit if you find yourself in Mui Ne. As far as shopping goes, you will only find wine, but extensive is an understatement when describing the portfolio of fermented fruit-based alcohol. Even if you're not a wine drinker, a visit to this place will give you a great story to tell the people back home.
