I can't see why other people see it as interesting. Just area of red sand dunes, could be interesting if clean and placed in nice surroundings. But, sand is covered by garbage, dunes are situated next to road and several bad but expensive restaurants. When I was there, hundreds of other people walked around, too - tourists brought by numerous... More

Crowded and dirty.hassled from the moment you step out of car. ( just after sunrise ) passed a day later about 8.30am and it looked empty and probably far more enjoyable. Not worth a visit.

Personally i prefer the red sand dunes compared to the white. Simple reason because this one doesnt have ATV rental and its serene and peaceful when you walk around. You can also rent the sliding board for $1-2 and climb to the peak to slide down. Its nice to just walk around and sit. The sand are soft and you... More

One of the must thing to see when you visit mui nei. :) we been here on 2nd Aug 2014. The trip was great. But if you go during this raining season you should go early morning so that you can enjoy the view before the rain fall. You can go by your own just rent a motorbike.

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.
