Sahara desert in Vietnam

Mui Ne - located in the South of Vietnam is considered as Sahara desert in Vietnam as there are dozens of white and red sand dunes in those areas. Besides that, Mui Ne is also well-known as one of the most iconic beach for relaxing in Vietnam. This beautiful beach is a coastal town in Phan Thiet city – the capital of Binh Thuan province, about 4 hours driving from Ho Chi Minh City.  The beach is really a great idea for Vietnam tour packages including both Vietnam family tour, Vietnam honeymoon tour, etc as the beach has warm weather all year round which is suitable for swimming, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling and kite surfing.

While visiting to Mui Ne beach, there are many tourist attractions for you to choose like Ca Na Beach -  2-hour from Mui Ne providing probably the best coral reefs and diving opportunity in Vietnam, Fairy Springs – a stream offering local wildlife, Fish Sauce Plants where you can see the whole process of producing fish sauce,  etc.

However, the most famous and beautiful site in Mui Ne must be sand dunes that are even called Vietnam Sahara desert. There are 2 types of sand dunes in Mui Ne including both white sand dunes & red sand dunes, in which, white sand dunes are the more impressive. Then, it is a great idea to hire a plastic sledge from local kids to ride the dunes.  Or quad bikes and dune buggies are also great options.

Best time to visit to Mui Ne is from August to April as you will get its best weather with dry season.
