Tower C, the Fire Diety Tower, is just a small mound compared to Tower A
Renting scooters is a thrilling way to explore Mui Ne and Phan Thiet, and stopping at the Cham Temple and Prince's Castle on Banai Hill is the perfect stop to break up the scooting and stretch your legs hiking up to the ruins. Atop the hill you get great views of the coastline and a massive cemetery dotted with colorful grave markers. If you are looking to buy souvenirs, there is pottery, woodcarvings and silk textiles that are hand loomed on site. There is a nominal entrance fee, and if you forgot your water or want some ice cream there is a small outdoor shop near the Towers.

My friend riding his ATV in front of a huge white dune with no footprints
Mui Ne has some of the craziest sand/soil I’ve ever seen, the reds were darker than I’ve seen even in Australia. The big draw for tourists in Mui Ne, other than the world class kite surfing, is the sand dune tour. We mentioned these tours in the Mui Ne Fairy Stream article, and we also mentioned how the Fairy Stream was more unique and we liked it better, however the sand dunes were a good visit as well. There are 2 sets of dunes the jeeps will take you to, one is white, and one is orange. The better ones in my opinion were the white sand dunes, and that’s what we’re talking about here.

The soil begins to darken along the Fairy Stream
Mui Ne, Vietnam is mainly known for 2 things to the traveller (if you’ve even heard of it): Kite Surfing and Sand Dunes. Most people that go see the sand dunes book a trip by jeep, and they throw in a few extra bonus stops along the way. The Ferry Stream is kind of brushed off as an additional stop on the sand dunes tour; however it was actually better than the dunes themselves. They’re not marketed well, and it’s really unofficial when you get there, but as tourism in Mui Ne grows, I’m sure they’ll become more well known.
