White Sand Dunes, Mui Ne

3.4
Explore one of Vietnam's most intriguing geological oddities at White Sand Dunes. You can reach this vast expanse of barren land via motorcycle, bicycle, or jeep. The jeep tour includes visiting many peculiar natural attractions, fishing villages, and a small lagoon covered in lotus flowers. Notice how no camels roam the desert-like landscape, as the local shepherd only herd cows near the coastal area. You can also rent a four-wheel ATV to speed through the sandy hills and enjoy the breeze in your hair.

  • Totally unexpected when I first googled tours to do in Vietnam! Who knew This country would have its own mini Sahara dessert. There is the option to hire quad bikes or take a jeep ride up to the top o...  more »
  • Who was once on the Canary Islands or even in the Emirates, will feel here ridiculed. For additional money (price / performance?) you would have can be driven even on the dunes. No thanks.

  • Beautiful white sand, beautiful sunrise viewing, nice & fun ATV riding especially return trip where driving down big hill & cornering the curve, also sliding down the big hill is a must try.. Great experience. 200k for ATV per person, 50k for sliding hill, a bit pricey. Photo shooting at top sand Hill is wonderful & fantastic.
  • Beautiful sand dunes next to a lake. We rented a Jeep for 600k dong for our group of 6 people to get from the base to the top. Besides just taking us there, we also got some exciting roller coaster experience on the way back as the Jeep was speeding over the steeper parts of the dunes. We also decided to rent a sand slider which turned out to be somewhat anticlimactic, you reach much higher speeds on snow than sand and the slope wasn't that long. You get the most from it if you come for both adventure and view.
  • It was beautiful to watch the sunrise here. We didn't book a tour but rode there on a scooter and got there very early. We decided not to take the quad bike and walked there (the guy said it would take one hour...it didn't). That being said, it did look like a lot of fun to take the quads, they zip down the dunes and it looks like an exhilarating experience! We trudged through the dunes to where everyone was gathering and watched the sunrise and it was very beautiful. You won't get your best pictures here, but when everyone dissipates you will get some nice ones. The lake nearby is beautiful and peaceful and the view of the dunes on the way there is fantastic. The let down was the rubbish dotted around, it ISN'T everywhere, but there are some signs of neglect, which is a shame. I believe nearby you can ride a hot air balloon as well (we saw one and it flew overhead, pretty cool). To conclude, it is nice if not sometimes a little crowded and with a little too much rubbish.
  • Honestly, the ATVs cause so much noise it's hard to enjoy. With the swarms of people photoshooting and the ATVs, I don't know if I would come back or recommend it to anyone. It's too bad this place isn't a nature reserve. Nice sunrise though!
  • It was fun, but certainly safety standards are from the 50's. Going out in the 4x4 with a group can be fun but beware you need to hold on tight, your safety is completely up to yourself. That said it was fun, and got to watch the quads being crazy on the hills!
