Almost certain we were going to get some kind of viral disease from treading in the water (which is the ONLY way to see the red sand dunes) which was flowing with the excrement of a few species of mammals that lived in that area. Very cute and sweet scenery, recommend bringing waterproof boots or else end up on the... More

We visited in the day so they did not look that red.you should visit at sunset,so we were told. There is a lot of rubbish over them which spoils it. There are also the locals who follow you to try to persuade you to hire a mat to slide down the dunes which we declined.Smaller than the white sand dunes.... More

Once you park, children will immediately begin hassling you to rent one of their plastic "sleds." The sand dunes are not that high. I couldn't enjoy them barefoot because of the unfortunate amount of trash. It's worth it to drop by and head up the hill to catch a glimpse of it (it's free), but in my opinion, the white... More

As these are closer to town than the white dunes you get mobbed by hawkers (actually small children trying to sell you plastic mats to slide down the dunes on). Also they seem to be more frequented than the others and there is a lot of litter on the way up. Conversely you don't have to fight against the quadbikes... More

We passed by the dunes on the way to our hotel so we stopped to have a look. We found it somewhat disappointing, the dunes are not that high, there is a lot of rubbish in the sand and children are constantly harassing you to rent mats from them to slide down the dunes. If you have never been to... More

Great place to catch the sunrise. Visitors can also cardboard slide on the dunes. You can rent the cardboards from the many vendors (many of them kids).

Only thing that makes this sand dunes interesting is that one side you have dunes and other side you have the beach to look at.

The red sand dunes are worth a quick visit, nyt unfortunately there's a lot of garbage everywhere, but I guess that's just typical Vietnam.
