Red Sand Dunes, Mui Ne

(2.8/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Slide down a red, Martian-esque landscape on a plastic sled at Red Sand Dunes, a formation of enormous red-and-orange-brown sandy hills just 20 minutes from downtown. Set against a view of the ocean, the gentle slopes of the dunes offer an easy but scenic walking trip, which will make you feel like you're in the Sahara Desert. Prepare to bargain over price of sand-sledding, or alternatively rent a quad bike or even ride an ostrich to explore the dunes. You can observe locals flying their kites as they gather for picnics in this popular spot. Pine trees provide necessary shade, with a limited number of food and drink stands on hand. Using our international travel planner, Phan Thiet attractions like Red Sand Dunes can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Sunrise is a jeep tour and sunset is poking around in the motorcycle rental facility was again no need to go sit down and watch the sunset tour to be taken down when the sled was stuck once stopping by burning a ton of Tarragona is fine well sense

  • I must say that the red sand dunes are really unusual but for the rest nothing exceptional. Too salty and too many sellers, especially for you sell a tower of luge on sand...

  • This place is worth a try with nice view. From there you may see the see and sands around. Good for taking photos

  • Beautiful experience walking up the enormous dunes. Must catch with the setting or rising sun! Beware of the locals though, they will pester you non stop to use their useless boards which don't even work and would even throw sand in your face to irritate you. Thats the only thing that spoils the experience. be ready to get a lot of sand in your clothes and bag too as the winds there are really strong.
  • Amazing place of red sand dune .We took a tour in the Jeeps with 6 persons, about 5$/person and that would have been exciting to riding as a roller coaster along the dune .Sunset view was more fantastic.
  • Great view, overcrowed by tourister.
  • Great place to enjoy with the kids. Not very much bothered with solicitations as other tourists experience.
  • It's not as majestic ad the white sand dunes, polluted by many vendors. Be adamant on saying no to avoid hassle
