Why You Need to Visit the Mui Ne Sand Dunes

In my opinion, Mui Ne is one of Vietnam’s hidden gems. Before arriving in Vietnam, I had never seen it mentioned on any sample itineraries, and it was not until I bought my open bus ticket and spoke with fellow travelers that I decided to make a quick stop. Although you don’t need a lot of time to enjoy the city, it is definitely worth a visit to check out the incredible Mui Ne sand dunes.

The Mui Ne sand dunes tour costs $7 USD (price subject to change) for the sunrise tour. The tour lasts approximately 5 hours. Departing your accommodation at 4:30am, you will visit the white sand dunes, the red sand dunes, a fishing village, and the fairy stream. At the fairy stream you will have the opportunity to ride an ostrich if you so desire (I was very hesitant at first for moral reasons, but was ultimately persuaded). It is definitely worth going on the early sunrise sand dunes tour seeing as the sand heats up quickly. By 7am it becomes almost painful to walk on. Because the tour leaves early you should try your best to get a good night of sleep beforehand so you can get the most out of it.
