Our last stop on the $5 tour of Mui Ne were the red sand dunes. Unlike the white sand dunes that were half an hour drive away, these red sand dunes are right in the center. Like all the other stops on the tour, entrance is actually free so you can go here on your own for as long as you want.
The first thing that happened when we parked by the dunes was swarms of Vietnamese children ascended upon us. They were holding boards for sliding down the sandy hills. If we hadn’t recently done the same thing in Inner Mongolia (which we’re still finding sand from months later) we would have been happy to try.
We got their just in time for the beginning of the sunset, so we just sat on the peak and took photos. It was the perfect way to end the tour that showed us so many different places in this fascinating city. The entire tour only took four hours, so if you’re just stopping in Mui Ne briefly, make sure to check out some of these places or taking this amazing value-for-money tour!
