Mui Ne (White Sand Dunes, Fishing Village, and the Fairy Stream)

For $15 each, we hired a private jeep and driver for 5 hours to take us 34 km out of Mui Ne to watch the sun rise over the white sand dunes. Off we went at 4:30am, and we arrived at the white sand dunes at 5:30am, which gave us about 16 minutes to hike to the sand dune of our choice. Here are some photos below.

If you ever find yourself in Vietnam, definitely check out the sleepy beach town of Mui Ne, and visit the red sand dunes at sunset, the white sand dunes at sunrise, and the fairy stream. Mui Ne is a 5 hour bus ride for $7 from Ho Chi Minh City. Worth it!!
