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
...and here's the national geographic shot that I took...
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!
