Best sunset ever. Not because we see the sun. But you can see the color of dessert being glowing red. Must see there, and you will know what I feel 🥂

White sand dunes were better. The red sand dunes were much more crowded and smaller in scale as compared to the white sand dunes. However, this red dunes was located directly opposite our hotel, so it is really convinient

This place is awesome but be careful when the indigenous kids offer you a sand sliding tour. It costed 50.000 vietnam dong/round. Better not say anything to them and book a sliding tour from an old woman/man instead. Cheaper price 15.000 vietnam dong for 30'.

In comparison to the white dunes, we were disappointed with our stop here. The white sands are softer and much cleaner. Here is bombarded with people trying to sell you all of their wares and the sands are covered in garbage, it's actually quite sad...More

Try to avoid the afternoon scorching heat. A good place for some photogenic shots. Went there by scooter. You'll have to pay 10,000 vnd to park at one of the privately drink stalls if you go there alone by bike. If you're planning to head...More

Another must do in Mui Ne. Instead of booking a tour, we decided to hire a motorbike and make our own way to the dunes, which were about 10mins from our AirBnB, Papaya. The best time to see the dunes is at sunset - just...More

Great sunset not as exciting as the white sand dunes but worth the stop just for the sunset and it's not a to much of a walk the kids can slide down the sand dunes lots of fun

No you can easily do it on your own. Renting a motorbike or one of the jeep tours is probably a the best and most affordable way. I think our tour started at 4.30 or 5.00 am.
Any recommendable hotels nearby White Sand Dunes or Red sand dune?

The dunes are not that close together but not a great distance either. I saw a lot of hotels along the way coming from Phan Theit to the red dunes.
Hi, I will be arriving at HCM Airport around 8am. Do u think I would be able to get 2 bus tix to go Mui Ne on that very same day? I don't wanna take the risk of booking the hotel there and not being able to make it by bus.
