Sudden Landscapes of Mui Ne 01: Watching the sunrise on the white Mui Ne sand dunes The beach city of Mui Ne, situated a few hours away from Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon), is a really relaxed place to chill out and overlook about the world for a few days. However, there are a lot of superb landscapes for those who are looking for some adventure in their lives.
Most hotels and hostels will give you two variations of the identical tour to the Mui Ne sand dunes and beyond. One is the sunrise tour and one is the sunset one.
Both excursions visit the identical places in a special order though the sunrise one is obviously the best one since there’s less people (and less heat).
The white mui ne sand dunes sunrise or sunset Ne sand dunes may not examine to the ones in Jordan’s Wadi Rum or any other desert however they are a very attention-grabbing sight to behold. The majestic sunrise over them will make that 4 am wake up call totally worth it in my humble opinion.

At this level of the sunrise tour, you’ll in all probability feel hungry for some breakfast so just ask your driver to stop on the best way to the next cease (a fishing port that isn’t really that spectacular) since you’ll want lots of energy for the Fairy Stream.
