White Sand Dunes, Mui Ne

3.5
#1 of 72 in Things to do in Phan Thiet
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. With our world travel planner, Phan Thiet attractions like White Sand Dunes can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Quite a distance away from town, but it's a nice journey by motorbike. Do make sure you have a valid licence though as there is a roadblock along the way. The place itself offers some amazing views, a...  more »
  • Was very windy when we went, the sand was unrelenting, I swear I still have sand on me today. If you pay for the 4x4 or dune buggy then it's worth going but to just walk around probs just go to the re...  more »
  • They are very well. You can rent Quad and 4 x 4. It is good to go early to not spend much heat. It is a miniature desert.

  • It's nice. I went to the dunes via a tour bus from my hotel. I walked up instead of renting an ATV or paying to be driven up. Pros: > It's pretty. > It's nice early in the morning before it gets too hot. Cons: > It's hard work walking to the top. > It get crowded rather quickly. > The noise from all the ATVs will ruin any tranquil moments you might have. Tips: > The White Dunes are far better than the Red Dunes. Skip the Red dunes and just see these and the Fairy Stream. > If you've ever seen any dunes before, then skip this too and just see the Fairy Stream. All dunes are essentially the same; tons and tons of sand.
  • There are some corrupted police spots on the way to this Dunes (who try to make money from visitors (eg at the flag 🚩 in my maps screenshot). Great view of the lake as well as the Sand Dunes. The motors rental price is rather pricey.
  • Bàu trắng nằm giữa không gian đồi cát,một bể lắng trong xanh giữa bốn bề hoang vu, leo lên đồi cát nhìn xuống rất thích. Bàu đang bị khoanh lại để làm du lịch, cơ hội chụp hình miễn phí cho phượt thủ đến từ bên kia đường, nơi có bàu sen nhỏ, tuy nhiên sen ít, nở hoa lấm tấm (MV Đưa nhau đi trốn).
  • Sand dunes were good to see, nothing to amazing. They push you to hire bikes to cruise around the dunes on.
  • Came to mui ne to see the sunrise at the sand dunes but it was a cloudy morning :') it is rather crowded with tourists and the sound of the atv just ruins everything. The hike up took around 15mins or longer because walking on sand is not as easy. But still for someone who hasn't seen a sand dune before it was great.
