MUI NE – BEAUTIFUL BEACH
Mui Ne is famous for its enormous red and white sand dunes. The ‘red dunes’ (doi hong) are convenient to Hai Long, but the ‘white dunes’ (doi cat trang) 24km northeast is the more impressive – the near-constant oceanic winds sculpt the pale yellow sands into wonderful Saharaesque formations. But as this is Vietnam (not deepest Mali) there’s little chance of experiencing the silence of the desert.
Prepare yourself for the hard sell as children press you to hire a plastic sledge to ride the dunes. Unless you’re supermodel-light, it can be tricky to travel for more than a few metres this way.
