Most Popular Attractions in Mui Ne – From Dunes to Fishing Villages

Situated along the southeast coast of Vietnam, Mui Ne is a famed beach town in the country. Read on to find out some of the reasons why it draws in many local and foreign tourists each year.


Luxury Beach Resorts

As it is a beach town, Mui Ne has attracted a lot of foreign investment, particularly when it concerns the hospitality trade. There are several resorts there owned by international hospitality chains. An example of one such resort is Anantara Mui Ne Resort, which is located along the beachfront and capitalises on this view of the ocean as well as direct beach access, as many other resorts in the town do. Spend your days at a luxury beach resort, lounging on the soft sands, swimming in infinity pools that overlook the ocean and just unwinding and relaxing. For those that like to stay in one place once they arrive at their destination, and have their every whim catered to, such options would be very appealing.


Understand What Life is Like in the Fishing Village

Another of the many things to do in Mui Ne is to go to the Fishing Village. It's the place to go to understand what coastal village life has been like for the locals. It's also a good spot to enjoy seafood dishes that are prepared using daily catches, fresh from the sea. What's the best time to visit? In the early mornings, so that you don't miss out watching the fishermen return from their trips at sea. When they come back, keep an eye out for their hauls. Common catches include items such as scallops, groupers, and even stingrays! Of course, you'll also be able to see other catches such as crabs – however, be warned, if you've never been to a fish market before, you might be surprised to find that crabs are caught and kept alive (but tied up so that they do not scuttle away or in crates with high walls some water in them so that they cannot escape. Crabs need to be kept alive for as long as possible to stay fresh since they're best eaten soon after their demise.


An Asian Desert

There are red and white sand dunes to be found in certain areas of Mui Ne, believe it or not. It's not often that we think of deserts when pondering about south-east Asian countries such as Vietnam, so this is a unique treat in the region indeed. Many like to visit the dunes during the sunset and sunrise hours to enjoy particularly stunning views as the sun rises and sets on the sandy horizons.


Wade through the Fairy Stream

Likened to the Grand Canyon in the US (albeit, a miniature version), the Fair Stream of Mui Ne offers an interesting experience indeed. Wade through a shallow winding stream as you make your way through a Grand Canyon-esque landscape. The journey should only take you a quarter of an hour or so, so it's great as a mini-excursion.


Dune Bashing on the White Dunes

The White Dunes of Mui Ne are loved for their picturesque surroundings that are dotted with scenic lakes, marshes, and small pine groves. One can hire a dune buggy for a spot of action here!
