Ways to go around in Mui Ne - Away we go, go, go

Mui Ne is a wonderful place to visit, and many who do, opt in for various methods of transport. Let's look at some of the top ways to travel around in Mui Ne.



Metered taxis are one of the most convenient ways of travelling around and exploring both Mui Ne and Phan Thiet. They can be often found outside hotels, resorts, and landmarks. Taxis are an incredibly popular choice amongst travellers coming straight out of Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat International Airport as it takes only a few hours to reach. Taxi drivers can generally speak English so talking with them is not an issue. Besides a comfortable ride, the fare is pretty great too. The standard price for a flag drop is 10,000 VND and every additional kilometre is 12,000 VND. As with most cases, it's always best to opt for a metered taxi.



Travelling via jeep is absolutely necessary if you're planning on checking out the iconic red and white sand dunes in Mui Ne. Many tour operators and companies offers roundtrips with jeeps at various price points because of popular demand. You can either rent out a jeep to drive on your own for around $35 USD or you could opt for a sunrise or sunset tour that costs about $30 upwards. Your hotel could generally book these for you. There are plenty of resorts in Mui Ne to choose from when visiting for a great stay with examples like Anantara Mui Ne Resort.


Motor Bike Hire

If you're travelling alone or with a bunch of friends and you're looking for fun experience, you can rent a motorcycle for the duration of your trip. They offer a great mode of transport that is fast and it gives you the independence of going where ever you want to. Since the motorcycles in Mui Ne are less than 150cc they are much easier to ride and come with fully or semi-automatic gearboxes. You can look at spending around 120,000 VND to rent a bike for a single day. Always be cautious with motorcycles though as the traffic can get extremely chaotic during peak hours.


Xe Om

Xe Om are motorbike taxis that are literally found anywhere and everywhere in Mui Ne. You can hail one from hotels, bars, restaurants or even prominent attractions like the Phan Thiet Central Market or even the Van Thuy Tu Temple. The cost for riding on one of these is usually around 20,000 VND for a short trip, however, if you're good at a little bargaining they might bring the price down. Do note that trips in the night are much higher, especially if it's around a nightclub or bar.



Another excellent way to get about while staying fit is by walking. Since the entire area around Mui Ne is connected via a long strip of a road called Nguyen Dinh Chieu, this makes for an excellent choice. If you're aiming to travel short distances, this is mostly fine. Tourists stroll from their resorts to stores, restaurants and even bars nearby. If you're looking at greater distances, any other option on this list should do.
