We arrived at the Red Sand Dunes about 2 hours before sunset and rented sleds. We had a blast jumping in the dunes and sledding and we were thoroughly exhausted by the time the sunset came around. The view was spectacular and the colors are breathtaking. Definitely recommend a trip to the Red Dunes if you are in the area... More

We don't like crowds so we went late evening when its much quieter, cooler and the sand isn't hot underfoot. Lingered till after dusk and it was absolutely wonderful in the moonlight with no one else around.

If you're staying in Mui Ne take a motorbike and visit dunes by your self. You won't spend more than 15 min becouse sun is so hot. But it is nice experiance and you can make some nice fotos.

If you're staying in Mui Ne or Ham Tien, stop at the Red dunes on your way out to the White Dunes. Do not go to the white dunes first, or you will be disappointed in the red ones. It's worth stopping at just to see, but you won't spend more than 15 mins there unless you're trekking through the... More

So, we arrived at the dune only to be surrounded by little kids trying to sell us mats to ride down on the dunes. They followed us around right on our heals trying to sell to us. The dunes were fine but I kept thinking "is this it?"

The red sand dunes were a little disappointing. The sands urging was not great. Perhaps it just had a lot to live up to after we went to the white sand dunes and hired out a quad bike!?

It's impressive to find those sand dunes in Vietnam, you wouldn't expect them there. Although there is not much to do (besides sliding down the dunes with plastic mats people try to rent you for some thousand dong) it's a pretty photo landscape especially late afternoon. I wouldn't go there just for the sand dunes, but don't miss it out... More

We hired a moped and took a drive out. Very easy to find. There was some kids at the bottom who tried to get you to pay them to look after your moped but we just left ours. They also try and get you to pay them to let you use their sledges to go down the dunes on. I... More

Good to be there before the sunset. We did the sand boards which were ok. We skipped the tours, instead of that rented motorbikes and went by ourselves.
