Red Sand Dunes, Mui Ne

1.7
#2 of 6 in Nature in Binh Thuan Province
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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.
