Came here is the afternoon, and there was only one other couple there. We rented an ATV for $50 for 30-minutes. We tried to negotiate on the price, but the guy would not budge and he stayed with us the entire time. Probably for the best because the other couple had their ATV stuck in the sand the entire time.... More

When you go there then early in the morning for the sun rise. The views are nice but it is to loud because they have a lot of quads and that is a terrible sound in the morning... every tourist jump in and destroy the quitness in the desert. On this place you can see what tourist are for the... More

Woke up at 430 am for a 5 am trip to the white sand dunes. It was amazing and breathtaking. The sand, water, trees and sky all blended together perfectly with its contrasting colors. It formed a picture-perfect image with all the layers of color. For 600k dong, we rented an SUV to take us through the dunes. We went... More

When you visit Mui Ne, Vietnam, do not forget to visit the spectacular white sand dunes. It was my first time to visit such place. Though, we did not see the sunrise due to the mist on that day, still the adventure continues. We tried the ATV they offer which is quite expensive, it cost 600,000VD for a 30-minute ride.... More

We went to the dunes to see the sunrise and it was lovely. The big white dunes and the lakes and trees around was amazing. The sunrise improves the experience abd the weather at the early morning is better.

The sand dunes are beautiful (think Lawrence of arabia but on a much smaller scale, with quad tracks everywhere). Cost is 10,000 dong entry. Go early before the tour groups and subsequent ATV use starts. We decided to park on the road outside the dunes, and walked down. When we got to the entrance the parking attendant (an unsavory looking... More

We went on an organised trip and this was the first stop and to see the sunrise. The clouds put pay to a decent sunrise but the dunes were good to see and we got some good photos. We were lucky that there wasn't many quad bikes out when we went. Worth a visit but what we weren't told was... More

This place is beautiful and worth a visit, it's so peaceful and like an oasis with the sand dunes contrasting with the lake and the greenery around it. There are some opportunities for sand biking which we did but don't do it as its a rip off (600,000vnd for 20 minutes) however they didn't tell us that a small child... More

I think you do have to visit this place, it's incredible... Huge... Yet don't expect to be at one with nature or have a special moment here because anywhere you walk, the silence will be drowned by revving as people race around the sand on quad quad bikes. As others have said, a real shame... But thats tourism.

Well worth a visit. The sand dunes are huge and very impressive. Take closed shoes if visiting during the heat of the day.
