The last of our trip was spent in Mui Ne. We went full out on the hotel for this part. It is a beach town and so we might as well stay at a nice place, right? Sailing Club Mui Ne was a lovely place to end our stay. Since the reviews said it was worth the extra dough to get the most expensive room, that’s what we did. I would say it was worth it.
Mui Ne is laid out rather differently than the other towns we visited. It’s just one long road of hotels on the beach side and restaurants on the other side. So, the first day we just explored a bit, used the pool and enjoyed our bungalow. The water was always pretty muddy and so we didn’t ever venture out in it sadly. But, we had a couple of walks on the beach and dinner on our last night on the sand.
On the second day, we rented a motorbike to get around to explore. It was my first time on a motorbike on the road as well (lots of firsts here!). It was great to feel the hot wind as we sped along the road. Plus, we got to see some of the regular life along the way.
We rode in to a neighboring town and then explored Mui Ne a little bit. In the afternoon, we relaxed back at the resort. I had a massage while Craig had some man-time. ;D
The next morning, we headed off to take a look at the sand dunes that are suppose to be the highlight in the area. We found the Red Dunes and had a walk up, but we never really did find the White Dunes. Still, it was great to ride around a bit. By afternoon, I was somehow quite tired and so I relaxed more by the pool to soak up the last of cool weather before heading back to the Dab.
All-in-all, I’d say Vietnam was a lovely country to visit. Of course, I had great company in Craig and Roman. The weather was great for us and we managed to get out of the big city, which is a must to fully enjoy what Vietnam has to offer.
Until the next update!
