Mui Ne

More beaches

rain 30 °C

We bought an open bus ticket in saigon which will take us from Saigon - Mui Ne - Da lat - Nah Trang - Hoi An - Hue - Hanoi whenevr we like for only $38. So we left Saigon and arrived at Mui Ne beach expecting something similar to what we experienced in Sihanoukville. There was not a tout or hawker to be found on the beach at all! Couldn't beleive it! We stayed in a nice beach bungalow for two nights and enjoyed swimming and reading mostly.

We also visited the red and sand dunes, a fantastic fishing market and the fairy spring which is a stream that flows through a patch of dunes with pretty nice rock formations.

Chris decided to get artistic with the camera :)

The fishing market was huge and extremely busy. Cjhris even got grunted and yelled at a couple of times for being in the way. the ladies carry very full and heavy loads of fish from the boats and up the bank so you can understand why!

Lovely photos,especially of the dunes. What kind of fish are they? There seems to be an endless supply.
