Mui Ne is known as a beautiful little fisher village 200km from Saigon. It is between this village and Phan Thiet that you can find one of the most beautiful beaches Vietnam has to offer. Of course this means that there are a lot of resorts, and for a reason we still don't understand many Russians. All the menu's in the restaurants are translated in Russian and we encountered quite a lot Vietnamese people speaking fluently Russian. You can imagine how many time people talked to us in Russian, which was annoying as we didn't feel to be in Vietnam anymore. Luckely, once you arrive in the center of Mui Ne, you don't find any resorts or guesthouses anymore and it becomes more local. The habour in this fishing village was for us the most beautiful place of Mui Ne. The authentic charm of this harbour is due to the adorable coloured boats. We enjoyed there one of the most beautiful sunset till now.

For our last day, we decided to go on an organized day trip at 4.30 in the morning with seven other persons in a jeep (and yes, indeed this is a lot and we were really stuck). Our first stop was to the wonderful Saharaestic white sand dunes and lotus lake for sunrise. After the very impressive white sand dunes, we went to the yellow sand dunes, also extremely beautiful. We finished the excursion with the fairy stream, which is a little river that goes through bamboo forests, boulders and the dunes behind the village. This excursion was really worth it and showed us a complete different version of Asia, which we didn't imagine existing.
