Why Mui Ne is special ?
Mui Ne (Mũi Né) is a coastal resort town in the Binh Thuan Province of the Southeast region of Vietnam. The town is close to the city of Phan Thiet. Tourism has transformed Mui Ne into a resort destination since 1995, when many visited to view the solar eclipse of October 24, 1995. Mui Ne has many resorts on the beach, as well as restaurants, bars and cafes. Mui Ne is a popular destination for Russian tourists, and many of the restaurants and resorts are Russian-owned.
Mui Ne Beach is a popular tropical beach. Strong sea breezes make it very popular for kitesurfing and windsurfing. The tourist season is from December to May. The average temperature is 27°C, and the climate is hot and dry for most of the year.
What to explore at Mui Ne?
One of southern Vietnam's prime slices of beach real estate, Mui Ne beach is a 12 kilometre-long sweeping bay boasting a wide range of guesthouse and resort options, with the actual village of Mui Ne set at the far eastern end of the bay. With Saigon a mere four hours away, it makes an attractive destination for travellers looking for a quick beach holiday and Saigonese seeking a weekend retreat. The main resort strip is known locally as Ham Tien beach.
How to get to Mui Ne?
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 9:00 AM or PM (7:30 AM for Sinh cafe in air-conditioned bus and arrive at Mui Ne at about 1:00 PM, same for night schedule).
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.
You might considering coming from Saigon to Mui Ne by Taxi, instead of Open Bus. 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.
