From a cape where fishermen often go to avoid storms, Mui Ne Vietnam has become a famous tourist paradise with white sand, blue sea, and rich seafood.
We’ve visited Mui Ne several times and love the area. Here are our top picks of the best things to do in Mui Ne.
Rent a motorcycle and explore
Riding a bike is the best way to get around in Mui Ne, as there are plenty of hidden gems to explore.
We love stopping randomly at anything that seems interesting – small cafes, beachside restaurants, or dragon fruit field. There are plenty to see in Mui Ne that are not common tourist attractions.
Take a sunrise tour to Mui Ne Sand Hills
Do not miss Vietnam’s “sub-Saharan desert” – Bau Trang on your visit to Mui Ne!
We took a morning jeep tour and arrived at the white sand dunes just before the sunrise. The place was vast and the views were wonderful.
We decided to walk up the viewpoint, but you can surely rent a terrain vehicle or a jeep to drive around the area.
Tips: The sun rise is beautiful and we highly recommend taking a good camera to capture it.
Walk along the Fairy Stream
We had a great time visiting Fairy Stream (Suoi Tien) as part of our jeep tour.
We got there at about 9am and there were a few groups of people. It was a beautiful way to spend the day with a great view, and the most beautiful part is the colorful sand walls and vegetation around the creek.
We loved the laid back ambiance and friendly atmosphere, and we often found ourselves singing along with the musicians on stage.
Address: This cozy bar is located at 86 Nguyen Dinh Chieu in Ham Tien Mui Ne.
Visit Ke Ga lighthouse
About just over an hour from Phan Thiet city, Ke Ga cape charms its visitors with a wild and majestic beauty. The island has many rocks with strange shapes, arranged into extremely impressive blocks.
In addition to exotic rocky beaches, this place is also famous for the tallest and oldest lighthouse in Vietnam – Ke Ga Lighthouse.
How to get there: You can take a boat to the island with a round trip ticket of 50,000 VND / person.
Visit Po Sah Inu temple
Another place that you should visit in Mui Ne is Po Sah Inu Tower.
Po Sah Inu Tower is the remain of the ancient Champa Kingdom, located on Ba Nai hill, Phu Hai ward, about 7 km from the center of Phan Thiet city and about 3km from the center of Ham Tien Mui Ne tourist area.
Although it has a medium size, it distills the quintessence of architectural techniques and decorative arts of the ancient Cham, creating majesty and mystery.
Po Sah Inu temple group is one of the relatively intact Champa towers in Vietnam.
