MEET MUI NE VIETNAM- PHOTOS ON WHAT TO DO IN MUI NE

After exploring HCMC on my own, I took a 5 hour sleeper bus to Mui Ne for $16 alone. I went here to see stunning landscapes on this part of Vietnam. It didn’t disappoint me as I was expecting so. Here are my photos to inspire your off beaten path from Saigon.

HOSTEL SCENES

I stayed at Mui Ne Backpackers Hostel. They are tagged as the friendliest hostel in Mui Ne! For two nights, I only paid $16.

This hostel is just extra ordinary! Relax and sunbathe by the pool and get involved in volleyball. They have games mostly every night.

SLEEPER BUS SCENE

The bus driver dropped me off near my hostel which was like a 5 minute walk to my hostel. I couldn’t find it first. I felt lost in the middle of nowhere. No people around. No cars around. Just me and my backpack. Yet my sanity kept me going and found a local. I showed him the exact address of my hostel and euraka!

WHITE SAND DUNES SCENES

After arriving at 2am,  I rest for a while hopping to get a sleep before the Sunrise Tour at 4am.
First stop is the White Sand Dunes–  the farthest from my hostel which took us maybe an hour. I bet you didn’t know sand dunes exist in Vietnam!
Mui Ne’s topography is a testament to the magical prowess of nature. It is a stunning piece of paradise!
I barely even had slept, so I felt like a zombie during the tour!
We decided not to pay 1M VND for the jeep ride because it was expensive.  ATVs are also for rent here but we walked barefoot instead! Thank god we did! The walk was like 20 minutes to get the best views and my feet on the cool sand has been the best feeling!

RED SAND DUNES SCENES

These dunes are out of this world. It is exactly how I have always imagined a desert to be – a vast barren land.
Red Sand Dunes, Mui Ne Vietnam
It’s very pristine and breathtaking! Places like this is one of the easiest and my most favourite to shoot at!

Fairy Stream is a photography hotspot in Mui Ne due to its dramatic landscape of reds and oranges. I didn’t know what to expect before coming here. A fluttering fairies, maybe? Anyway, It was really cool to do barefoot walking – the sand feels great on my feet.
I didn’t know what to expect before coming here. A fluttering fairies, maybe? The stream winds its way around the bamboo forest, dunes and boulders, with some saying it resembles a mini Grand Canyon and Cappadocia at times. The stream is also about ankle-deep for the most part and doesn’t get past my knees at its deepest.

FISHING VILLAGE SCENES

A good place to witness the local life. This village also offered me a splendid view of an expansive coastline lined with colourful fishing boats moored on the water. It’s very peaceful how life here is so simple.

Mui Ne has recently become a tourist spot in Vietnam. With the red and white sand dunes, it has quickly become a hotspot for backpackers. Due to its popularity, tourists now outnumber locals these days. The once sleeping community is now packed with travelers around the world. But despite the crowd it brings, it still exhibits a laid-back appeal.
