Trip to Sand Dunes
Visiting Mui Ne without having a trip to its gorgeous sand dunes is probably one of the biggest mistakes you can make on your holiday in this area.
The beautiful endless white sand area will enchant you changing the color of the sand as the day goes by and if you pay attention to the middle of the dune, you for sure won’t miss the crystal clear fresh water of the Lotus lake. The following sand dune is the one with the red sand from whose top you’ll be able to see the exquisite scenery of the entire town, including the fishermen in the harbor. The final stop of the tour is Fairy Spring where you can enjoy the intact beauty of a canyon.
Trip to Dalat
Being the capital of Lam Dong Province located on the Langbian Plateau 1,500 meters above sea level, Dalat is a great place to visit if you find yourself in Mui Ne. It’s 160 kilometers away from Mui Ne and it’s a popular destination for tourists, having the nickname City of eternal spring.
On your trip to the city you can enjoy the beautiful Prenn Waterfall, the Bao Dai’s Summer Palace, the gorgeous Dalat Flower Park, the amusing Hang Nga Crazy House, and the Truc Lam Zen Monastery, the largest Zen study center in Vietnam, which offers the impressive view on the Tuyen Lam Lake.
Trip to Ta Cu Mountain
Te trip to Ta Cu Mountain is the most interesting option for people willing to know more about buddhism in Vietnam since this mountain represents the pilgrimage site for Buddhists in this country and the main highlight of the mountain is the huge imposive statue of the reclining Buddha, as well as the statue which shows Buddha entering Nirvana.

From there, you can reach the place where you can hear the Vietnamese traditional music.
If you’ve got enough time, you can enjoy various other activities as well, such as observing a traditional Mekong house, visiting bee-keeping farm, and tasting the delicious honey tea.
Trip to Ca Na Beach
The lovers of water sports definitely should not miss visiting Cau Island and Ca Na beach, which are well-known as the major centers of scuba diving and snorkelling in this area, with its beautiful clear waters, interestingly shaped exotic stones, and colorful coral reefs which are the habitat for various species of marine life.
The area is also a great place for fishing and exploration of the flora and fauna on the island, and when you get tired of all these fun recreational activities, you should definitely have a taste of the delicious, savory local food, mostly based on fish and seafood.
