Mui Ne, Vietnam is a beautiful, low-key, beach town in the Southern part of the country. It’s well-known for it’s adorable little fishing village, the red sand dunes, and it’s laid-back vibes. This is what I did in Mui Ne, Vietnam.
Mui Ne, Vietnam
I rented a little room in a guesthouse from airbnb (my favorite method for finding good accommodation!). The guest house was just across the street from a hotel, where I rented a motorbike for the day. Getting around by motorbike is by far the best way to see Mui Ne.
Most of the best restaurants are located along the street running out of the city. They can be quite far to walk, and the heat in Vietnam makes for a very uncomfortable long stroll. I’d highly recommend renting a motorbike for cheap and easy transport. Mine cost 100,000 dong for the day ($4.40 USD) and I put in 60,000 dong ($2.64 USD) for a full tank of gas.
I took this little moto to the sand dunes, to the other side of the city, to coffee and lunch and even for a little sunset ride.
The red sand dunes were so beautiful to see, and gave me some serious wanderlust for the desert.
In my hunt for the best coffee, I visited the coffee shop Impresso, and another littler shop which shall not be named (the coffee was not so great). How cute is Impresso!
I stopped at a highly recommended restaurant, Choi Oi, for a coconut before heading to the sand dunes. I’d read online that they have fabulous vegetarian food, so I came back for lunch.
Lots of veggie places do a tofu & tomato combo, and I’m trying to find the best one. This one was pretty good!
For dinner, I had to try out the pizza place attached to my guest house. I’d read reviews that it was amazing & vegan friendly. It was real, genuine, italian-style pizza, and it is now Amanda Approved!
Mui Ne is a tiny little town, it’s a great place to wind down from the craziness of the bigger cities. There are definitely lots of bars and pubs if that is your scene, but for me it was a great day of relaxation and adventure. It’s also a perfect halfway point from Da Lat to Ho Chi Minh – and definitely worth hanging out for a day or two!
