Surprising Landscapes of Mui Ne 01: Watching the sunrise at the white Mui Ne sand dunes
The beach city of Mui Ne, situated just a few hours away from Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon), is a very relaxed place to chill out and forget about the world for a couple of days. Nonetheless, there are various wonderful landscapes for individuals who are in search of some adventure of their lives.

Most hotels and hostels will offer you two variations of the identical tour to the Mui Ne sand dunes and beyond. One is the sunrise tour and one is the sunset one.

Both tours go to the identical places in a distinct order although the sunrise one is obviously the best one since there’s less individuals (and less heat).

The white Mui Ne sand dunes might not compare to the ones in Jordan’s Wadi Rum or any other desert but they're a very attention-grabbing sight to behold. The majestic sunrise over them will make that 4 am get up call totally value it in my humble opinion.

Tip of Wonders 02: Should you select the sunset tour, the red Mui Ne sand dunes would be the final stop and you’ll be watching the sunset from here. My greatest suggestion? Go on the morning sunrise tour after which (in case you’re not too tired), hire a bike to come back back here for sunset.
