Mui Ne, Vietnam used to be a quiet fishing village about 200 km east of Saigon. Now it's a bustling beach resort, which attracts Vietnamese weekenders from Ho Chi Minh City, Russian, Korean, and Chinese vacationer, and some backpackers on the Vietnam Open Bus Tour trail.

The other large vacationer exercise in Mui Ne is a Mui Ne sand dunes tour.

The white sand dunes Mui Ne are an enormous expanse of white sand, sculpted into rolling dunes by the ever-altering winds.

The red dunes, regardless of their placing color, are less impressive. Households with young children will enjoy the probability to fling themselves down the red dunes on plastic toboggans though.

Most individuals go to on a bunch tour arranged at their Mui Ne hostel or hotel in Mui Ne and we did the same. However, as we found out, we'd probably have enjoyed the Mui Ne sand dunes if we had chosen differently.

Read on to find out…

Take a Private Mui Ne Tour
For the most effective experience of the sand dunes, don’t book into a gaggle jeep tour with all the other tourists. In the event you do, you’ll be stuck on another person’s schedule and find yourself either waiting or feeling rushed (or both). 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 roadmethods 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 finish of each tour stop, ready for a couple who determined to ignore the set meeting time and roll in every time they felt like it. Super annoying!

Skip Sunrise & Sunset on the Mui Ne Sand Dunes
Some travellers swear by their sunrise journey experiences. At touristy places like Angkor Wat, Mount Bromo, and the Mui Ne sand dunes, everybody feels compelled to assemble at these appointed times to observe the sun do the same thing it does each single day.

Yes, you get beautiful light and dramatic pictures. However you additionally get thrown together with hordes of different vacationers who completely highjack and detract from the experience.

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

(I know that angle is why we don’t have a million followers on Instagram nevertheless it’s true nonetheless).

Arrive about an hour after sunrise, when all the early tourists have gone residence, and 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 number of dollars but what nobody tells you is that while you arrive at the dunes, just before sunrise, you’ll need to pay an additional $10 for a Jeep to drive you throughout the dunes to the best sunrise-viewing spot. In case you like, you can even rent a four-wheel ATV to tear up the dunes.
