5 Best Things to Do in Mui Ne – Exciting Activities to Enjoy in Vietnam This Year!

Nestled between the turquoise beaches that fringe Vietnam's scenic Eastern Coast, Mui Ne is a tiny fishing village that's just a four-hour train ride away from the capital of Ho Chi Minh City. There are a number of reasons that you should visit Mui Ne this year. Here are five of them!


Quad Biking at the White Sand Dunes

Here's the place to rent a quad bike to experience the sensation of adrenaline coursing through your veins as you're about to conquer the many sand dunes. The journey towards the dunes is a joy in itself – you will pass through unpaved roads and stunning stretches of Vietnam's countryside. Once you reach the White Sand Dunes, let go of all inhibitions and whizz across the sands – you will experience everything from gentle bumps to hair-raising bends.


Visiting the Fish Market of Mui Ne

The chaotic fish market of Mui Ne is a must-visit place during the early morning hours. It will provide you with a fascinating glimpse into the daily lives of the local fishermen. Each morning, they bring their catch to the shores and they are sold to street food vendors, restaurant owners and local traders, right on the spot. Expect to witness buckets overflowing with fish, raucous conversation, and many photo opportunities.


Walking Along the Fairy Stream

Fairy Stream sounds like a tourist trap – but you're wrong if you think that's what this is! It is aptly named and is indeed a rare gem of nature. Found mid picturesque beaches and quaint fishing villages, this stream flows through incredible limestone formations. Remove your shoes and carry them along with you as you wander along the length of this muddy-brown stream, towards a waterfall.


Learning the Ropes of Kite Surfing

Mui Ne boasts a range of windy beaches that are ideal for kite surfing and similar other sports. In fact, it is one of the most popular sites in Asia for kitesurfing. A number of kitesurfing shacks fringe the beaches in Mui Ne, offering lessons for everyone, at competitive prices. There is no shortage of sandy beaches to practice the sport, so you might as well test your mettle for kitesurfing while enjoying a holiday at a property such as Anantara Mui Ne Resort.


Visiting Ke Ga Lighthouse

There is no shortage of things to do in Mui Ne, and one of the best-loved activities is to visit Ke Ga Lighthouse. This iconic lighthouse is located approximately an hour's drive away from Mui Ne. The journey towards the lighthouse itself is quite exciting, treating one to a scenic drive along a rocky coastline. This area is perfect for a spot of fishing. The backdrop is rather spectacular and makes for some great photo opportunities, letting you make splendid memories for the years to come. Come over here with your loved ones to savour a delicious seafood hotpot lunch. It is interesting to note that Ke Ga Lighthouse is not only the oldest of its kind in Southeast Asia but also the highest lighthouse in the region with a total height of 65 metres.
