Red Sand Dunes, Mui Ne

3.0
#1 of 6 in Nature in Phan Thiet
Slide down a red, Martian-esque landscape on a plastic sled at Red Sand Dunes, a formation of enormous red-and-orange-brown sandy hills just 20 minutes from downtown. Set against a view of the ocean, the gentle slopes of the dunes offer an easy but scenic walking trip, which will make you feel like you're in the Sahara Desert. Prepare to bargain over price of sand-sledding, or alternatively rent a quad bike or even ride an ostrich to explore the dunes. You can observe locals flying their kites as they gather for picnics in this popular spot. Pine trees provide necessary shade, with a limited number of food and drink stands on hand.

  • One of the main attractions in the region. A good time to go there is in the morning or late afternoon. The public bus Nr. 1 stops right at the dunes (don't pay more than VND 16000). It's a great spot with a nice scenery, perfect for making images. The area of the dunes is wide, you could walk for hours. On the other side of the road are various restaurants for those who want to eat or drink something.
  • Good place with nice dunes. Free entry. Quite busy from 6 to 7 am. However lot of trash.
