This attraction is free, so clearly no one is taking care of it. There is garbage everywhere and the moment you drive up, there is a whole bunch of small kids who surround your car and start screaming for you to pay them money and do the slides. The dunes themselves are nothing spectacular, so just go straight to the... More

Last stop for us on our Jeep tour, not as nice as the white dunes as these are smaller and adjacent to a busy road have plenty of rubbish laying around. Maybe the red dunes first as a taster before the more impressive white dunes. There is no entry fee for this and local kids carry their foam mats up... More

not as large or as inspiring as the white sand dunes nearby but still quite impressive. As soon as you see the Red Dunes you are whisked away to an offworld place. It is like the Mars you see in the movies and on tv - desolate, red. Sunset here is pretty special and it is worth the visit if... More

Not advisable to rent a motorbike. Nice but dangerous. Cops that want money! Pre-arranged accident s & theft. Not worth tge risk. Usd $800 to get bike back.

Very beautiful colour. Be there before sunset. No entrance fee. Just stop by the road-side & climb up a bit. Lots of people & activities. Try sandboarding /sliding. Need to bargain.

We had visited pink sand dunes before at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Utah (see here: https://www.facebook.com/otran1/media_set?set=a.1030881107721.4503.1696183554&type=3) The color of the sand here at Red Sand Dunes (local named Đồi Hồng) is quite similar. However, there are many things different that make this trip even better: 1) The scenery is different. Coral Pink Sand Dunes SP is surrounded... More

Part 3. As soon as your jeep stops you have loads of kids running towards you offering you a sledge to rent! Be aware that they ask you stupid prices like 50,000. Walk to the top of the dune and others offer as little as 20,000... Do not pay any more than this as the locals pay next to nothing!... More

Definitely not as nice as the white sand dunes. There's quite a lot of rubbish and the place is swarming with tourists and locals alike. The minute you arrive you are attacked by an army or kids trying to get you to use their 'sliders'. We managed to break from the crowd which was nicer in the end!

It is a good place but you have to look the red sand dunes before the white sand dunes because the white sand dunes is more beautiful.. but the local people is annoying because they always sell a thing even when you say no.. so be careful!
