Phan Thiet, a 4 hours bus journey from Ho Chi Minh City, is a small and sleepy seaside town that has a certain quaint and colorful fishing village charm. The town is surrounding by a series of undulating hills, lush greenly and a blissfully secluded dune-covered coastline.
A few kilometers to the East of Phan Thiet is Mui Ne where has some of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Viet Nam. Some are lined with tall coconut trees, others lean against striking red dunes. Muine is a refuge for weekenders who prefer the comforts of beach-side resorts, tranquility and succulent seafood to the noisy traffics and trade of the city.
