There are two types of buses delivering tourists from Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne: daytime "open buses" and nighttime "sleeping buses". The daytime ones have usual seats in which you can take a nap.

Mui Ne – the quiet harbour

Mui Ne was once a small fishing village, but today it's becoming more and more popular among tourists. Each year, not only Vietnamese people, but also tourists from other countries come here to enjoy its beautiful sceneries and clean beaches. You can not only swim and sunbathe, but also engage in some active sports – for example, kite- and windsurfing. There are not so many sightseeings in the city – the most interesting one is Cham towers, there are often different festivals and mass celebrations held near them. Mui Ne is also full of natural beauty: the Fairy Stream, the Red Sand Dunes, the White Sand Dunes, etc.
