Things to Do on a Relaxing Weekend in Mui Ne - Top Activities to Enjoy during a Weekend Getaway in Mui Ne

As one of Vietnam's most popular weekend holiday destinations, Mui Ne offers visitors a host of relaxing activities. Here are some of the best things to do in the charming fishing village that will help travellers unwind.


Walk along the Dunes

As two of the area's most visited natural wonders, the Red Sand Dunes and the White Sand Dunes are must-visit highlights for nature lovers as well as those who love long walks. While more adventurous travellers like to go quad biking or dune bashing at these two sites, those who are looking for more peaceful activities can watch the sunset or go for a quiet stroll in these landscapes that resemble the Grand Canyon, only in miniature.


Cruise Around

While renting a motorbike is often ranked among the convenient ways to get around Mui Ne, driving down the coastal road at your own pace can be one of the best things to do during a holiday in the area. Motorbikes are available for hire from countless rental shops and those with an international license can ride along the captivating coast and discover the less-touristy side of Mui Ne by wining and dining in street-side cafes and witnessing community life in the fishing village.


Shop till You Drop

Whether one is a shopaholic or not, touring the Phan Thiet night market can be a fun way to spend the evening in Mui Ne. The vibrant thoroughfare is a souvenir hunter's dream come true as there are numerous handicrafts, embroideries and other ornaments made in the Cham tradition as well as household items fashioned out of seashells.


Wine and Dine

A trip to the Phan Thiet Night Market also offers visitors the chance to dig into seafood delicacies including tiger prawns, crabs and grilled fish. Other local treats that travellers can dig into include rice pancakes that are fried the traditional way as they were first made by the Cham community. Apart from the market, Mui Ne is home to a plethora of seafood restaurants and beach bars where tourists can enjoy a memorable night out.


Hit the Beach

Whether one is based at the Anantara Mui Ne Resort or any other Mui Ne resort, a visit to this part of the country affords tourists the chance to engage in a plethora of water sports activities. Mui Ne has some of the best conditions in Vietnam for kitesurfing. And whether you are a beginner or a seasoned expert, there are more than enough water sports centres and schools to help you master the activity. The Jibe's Beach Club is one such venue where visitors can sign up for kitesurfing lessons or any other water-bound sporting activity.


Visit the Fairy Stream

Described as one of Mui Ne's most breathtaking attractions, the Fairy Stream flows through a series of limestones in an area surrounded by lush greenery. Visitors can walk along the path of the stream at a leisurely pace and reach the tiny waterfall that one can also climb up to take in the spectacular views available from the summit.
