Visit Mui Ne, Vietnam – Mui Ne Tourism & Travel Guide | Kendy TV
Mui Ne is a nice resort area in Phan Thiet, near Ho Chi Minh City (south Vietnam).
Northeast of Phan Thiet the coastal road climbs over the slope of a Cham-Tower-topped hill and descends onto the long, sandy crescent of Mui Ne Bay. The formerly little-inhabited beach south of the fishing village of Mui Ne proper has seen some serious development in the last 15 years. Now it is a 15 km long strip of resorts that line up like pearls on Nguyen Dinh Chieu street, shaded by coconut palms. The main resort strip lies between the addresses of 2 and 98 Nguyen Dinh Chieu and is actually named Ham Tien.
Given the choice, nature would move the sand around, much to the dismay of some developers. Beach sand tends to migrate up and down the coast seasonally, leaving some (but not all) spots with just a concrete breakwater rather than sandy beach. There is always a good sandy beach somewhere along this 10 km beach. Accommodations at higher addresses tend to be smaller and less expensive, somewhat removed from the main tourist section and more mixed in with local life. If a sandy beach is important to you, some research is called for before booking in that area.
A few bargain hotels have popped up on the inland side of the road, across from the beach-side resorts. If you stay on the inland side, you will need to pass though one of the resorts to reach the beach, which might or might not result in some hassle from the guards. The resorts jealously guard their lounge chairs and palapas, though the beach itself is open to everyone. If all else fails, you can always access a nice sandy stretch of beach via the Joe’s Cafe with a drink purchase at 86 Nguyen Dinh Chieu.
The town is very popular with Russian package tour tourists which means most of the restaurants have signs, names, menus in Russian. In recent years, with the decline of the Russian Ruble, Russian tourist numbers have dropped.
However, the area is becoming increasingly boisterous because of the antics of green Mai Linh taxis. Especially in the evenings, showing a complete lack of sensitivity and respect, the taxis barrel up and down the coast road, constantly honking their horns.
Increasingly, the cabbies’ macho mania, which is completely at odds with Mui Ne’s laid-back character is destroying its charm. The town could well be doomed to deteriorate into another Nha Trang.
Do your bit by not taking taxis. Walk or cycle as much as possible and keep Mui Ne civil.
After the eclipse event October 25, 1995, Mui Ne seems to be shined by scientists and astronomy enthusiasts around the world who flocked to here to admire the eclipse. From that romantic landmarks of Mui Ne are explored, including Mui Ne Fairy Stream. Mui Ne Fairy Stream is a favorite destination of both domestic and foreign tourists. With three main colors: white, red and orange, Mui Ne Fairy Stream becomes unique and mysterious. The water flow of Mui Ne Fairy Stream is not pure as other stream; it is described with orange red color.
Many overseas visitors reach Mui Ne via “Open Tour” buses that run between Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang. Most depart from HCMC between 7:30 and 9:00AM or PM (7:30AM for Sinh cafein air-conditioned bus and arrive at Mui Ne at about 1:00 PM, same for night schedule). In the opposite direction, buses typically depart from Mui Ne around 2:00PM or AM and arrive in HCMC at 7:00PM or AM~ five hours at night or in the morning. Joe’s Cafe is a good place to catch an outgoing night bus as it offers full service all night and you never know how late the bus will be. Outside HCMC, the coach will stop at a petrol station with a pretty large shop and stalls selling snacks, drinks and fruit.
A train runs daily from HCMC to Phan Thiet, departing at 6:40AM and arriving four hours later. The return trip leaves Phan Thiet around 1:30PM. The cost is 136,000VND per person each way for the air-conditioned chair car. The train station in HCMC (Saigon Railway Station) is in District 3, about 3 km from the center. The railway station in Phan Thiet is about five km (80,000VND taxi ride) from the beginning of the Mui Ne resort strip, and taxis are abundant to take you there. Keep in mind that a ride all the way to Hàm Tiến costs up to 400,000VND from the train station. There is a mid-sized red-color local bus from the station to Mui Ne for which tickets are sold on the train for 35,000VND per person. The announcement will likely be made in Vietnamese only, so you need to watch carefully for the uniformed staff selling the tickets to pass by. You can most likely purchase the ticket on the bus itself.
You might considering coming from Saigon to Mui Ne by Taxi,The ride by taxi takes 4 to 5 hours, depending of the road condition, and will cost 70-100 US-Dollar, depending on your ability to bargain. Talk with all taxi drivers in airport to get best prices.
