Ought To You Bother Visiting The Mui Ne Sand Dunes In Vietnam?

Are the Mui Ne sand dunes a spot for a spectacular trip into a marvel of nature? Or are they just a tacky tourist trap? Read on to find the pros and cons of visiting the sand dunes in Mui Ne.

Mui Ne, Vietnam used to be a quiet fishing village about 200 km east of Saigon. Now it is a bustling beach resort, which attracts Vietnamese weekenders from Ho Chi Minh City, Russian, Korean, and Chinese tourist, 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.

There are two units of Mui Ne dunes: the white sand dunes and the red sand dunes. You may probably guess what color every of them is!

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

The red dunes, despite their placing colour, are less impressive. Households with younger kids will benefit from the chance to fling themselves down the red dunes on plastic toboggans though.

Most people go to on a bunch tour arranged at their mui ne red sand dunes tour Ne hostel or hotel in Mui Ne and we did the same. But, as we found out, we would in all probability have enjoyed the Mui Ne sand dunes if we had chosen differently.

Take a Private Mui Ne Tour
For the perfect expertise of the sand dunes, don’t book into a gaggle jeep tour with all the other tourists. If you happen to do, you’ll be caught on someone else’s schedule and find yourself either waiting or feeling rushed (or both). Our tour started 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 motive force careened along the roadmethods and at dangerously high speeds to get us to the dunes for sunrise. We survived, just, but we also missed sunrise by about 20 minutes!

Later, we sat for half an hour at the finish of every tour stop, waiting for a pair who decided to ignore the set assembly time and roll in every time they felt like it. Super annoying!

Skip Sunrise & Sunset at 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 occasions to observe the sun do the identical thing it does every single day.

Sure, you get lovely light and dramatic pictures. But you also get thrown together with hordes of other vacationers who fully highjack and detract from the experience.

I’d reasonably have a greater experience and worse footage!

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

Arrive about an hour after sunrise, when all of the early vacationers have gone residence, and also you get a few of the world’s most spectacular monuments to yourself. Regardless of skipping sunrise, we think our photos in both Angkor Wat and Mount Bromo turned our pretty well!

Don’t Destroy the Dunes
A tour to the white sand dunes only costs a number of dollars however what nobody tells you is that when you arrive on the dunes, just earlier than sunrise, you’ll have to pay an additional $10 for a Jeep to drive you throughout the dunes to the ideal sunrise-viewing spot. If you like, you can too hire a 4-wheel ATV to rip up the dunes.
