The White Dunes are much nicer than the Red. Furthermore, upon parking at the Red Dunes you will be badgered by 100 Vietnamese children trying to rent you poorly-crafted "Dune Sleds" and sell you all sorts of junk.

Red Sand Dunes is not the best compare to White Sand Dunes. I would say visit the red sand dunes during the sunset is the best time for taking a great picture and it's not too hot. The size of the dunes is a lot smaller than the white sand dunes. It was not too far from the city at... More

The dunes and scenery are nice. You'll see this immediately along the road. No entrance fee or whatsoever so just walk in there and enjoy the place. However, again this place is ruined by people trying to rip you off or make money. You can bargain for the "slider" for only 10K VND. Kids will come at you strongly asking... More

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.
