Take a Private Mui Ne Tour
For the very best expertise of the sand dunes, don’t book into a bunch jeep tour with all the other tourists. In case you do, you’ll be caught on someone else’s schedule and end up either ready or feeling rushed (or each). Our tour began with 20 minutes sitting by the side of the road in Mui Ne — earlier than sunrise — waiting for we-know-not-what.

The wait meant that the driver careened along the roadways and at dangerously high speeds to get us to the dunes for sunrise. We survived, just, but we additionally missed sunrise by about 20 minutes!

Later, we sat for half an hour at the end of each tour cease, waiting for a couple who decided to ignore the set meeting time and roll in whenever they felt like it. Super annoying!

Skip Sunrise & Sunset on the Mui Ne Sand Dunes
Some travellers swear by their sunrise travel experiences. At touristy places like Angkor Wat, Mount Bromo, and the Mui Ne sand dunes, everyone feels compelled to collect at these appointed instances to look at the sun do the identical thing it does each single day.

Yes, you get stunning light and dramatic pictures. However you also get thrown together with hordes of other vacationers who completely highjack and detract from the experience.

I’d slightly have a better experience and worse photos!

(I know that attitude is why we don’t have one million followers on Instagram however it’s true nonetheless).

Arrive about an hour after sunrise, when all the early tourists have gone home, and also you get among the world’s most spectacular monuments to yourself. Regardless of skipping sunrise, we think our photographs in both Angkor Wat and Mount Bromo turned our fairly well!

Don’t Destroy the Dunes
A tour to the white sand dunes solely costs a few dollars but what nobody tells you is that whenever you arrive on the dunes, just earlier than sunrise tour mui ne, you’ll must pay an additional $10 for a Jeep to drive you across the dunes to the ideal sunrise-viewing spot. In case you like, you can also hire a four-wheel ATV to rip up the dunes.
