We ain’t got a lot of money, but a 1 day side trip to Mui Ne is possible for Php3,000!
From Ho Chi Mihn, we took Sihn Cafe’s sleeper bus going to Phan Thiet. It costed us around 800php. The ride took 5 hours. The bus was a bit uncomfortable because we were lying on the bunk bed.
The last stop was very near to our accommodation – Saigon Cafe Guesthouse, 700php per night. There are also tour offices which changes currencies around the area. We availed of a half-day Mui Ne tour via US Jeep for 400php per head.
My favorite- white sand dunes
ATVs are for rent but they are quite pricey
Red sand dunes – sweetened ginger taho is recommended
Last stop – sea-side restaurant. I forgot the name but it is very affordable and delicious.
The following morning, we tried to take a dip at the “beach” behind Saigon Cafe Guesthouse. However, we were deceived by the website’s photo. The beach is a fishing area – full of rocks and garbage.
We checked out at 9am and went back to Saigon for another adventure.
