Tipped to be one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist destinations, Mui Ne welcomes visitors from around the world to its scenic confines. As a tranquil fishing village turned resort hub Mui Ne offers visitors the chance to experience a wide variety of activities and unique points of interest all contained within one diverse and vibrant geographical space. Visitors staying at conveniently located Mui Ne hotels such as the Anantara Mui Ne Resort will have easy access to the area’s top attractions.
The first point of attraction for all visitors who vacation in this paradise quarter of Vietnam is of course the beaches. Golden and stretching for miles on end the powdery sands that fringe the area’s top beaches make it a must-visit destination for beach lovers the world over. Other highlights include Mui Ne’s famed Fairy Stream or Suoi Tien as it is known in the local tongue.
The stream and its red hued waters fringed by the scent of pomelo flowers and lemon is not the only attraction in the area as near the stream lies the equally intriguing sand dunes of Mui Ne. Divided into the White Sand Dunes and the Red Sand Dunes this topographical anomaly is one of the most fascinating natural wonders in the area. The white dunes are the most pronounced of the two while the red dunes are unique for their dark hue.
Other points of interest scattered in and around Mui Ne include the captivating Phan Thiet Harbour. Located at the entrance of the Phan River also known as the Ca Ty River, the harbour is one of the most photographed sites in all of the area due to the large number of vibrant fishing boats anchored within its confines. Several quaint bridges and recreational parks also surround the harbour where visitors shop and dine in the boutiques and restaurants lining the port.
Hiking enthusiasts on the other hand should head up to the summit of Takou Mountain. Those who prefer to take the easier route can hop on board a gondola and enjoy a tour of the mountain right up to its peak where the Mountain Pagoda is located. Littered with tombs and a cave the 49m long Buddha sculpture in the venue is the largest of its kind in all of Vietnam. The Prince’s Castle and the Phan Thiet Water Tower are also worth the visit in addition to the Van Thuy Tu Temple.
