We caught the local bus to the red sand dunes, it took about 20 minutes and cost 13000VND each way. We set off around 1615hrs and this gave us time to get there, take some photos and sand sledge before the sunset at 1750hrs. I'd recommend wearing clothes that cover you up, sunglasses, and maybe a scarf. Be prepared to... More

We hired bikes and took them to the red sand dunes. Great fun you can rent slides for 5,000 Dong. Take water with you because it is hot! If you are hiring bikes make sure you have an international license and drive slow to not get pulled over by police.

It's only 7 kms from Mui Ne, you can walk by the see to go or take a bus (13000 VND), rent motorbike or bicycle. It's really beautiful at the top you feel like you are in the desert. I recommend! There is no entrance fee.

Not a bad place. Some nice views and you can park just on the other side of the road outside some cafes for free. The trick is you just need to buy something when you come back. We bought 2 bottles of water as we needed them anyway. The "Slide Down" is pointless. Basically they want 30,000VND to rent a... More

We were taken to see the sunset and so we're a lot of other people. But never mind that it was a nice sunset and the kids had a blast running up and down the dunes. A big minus however is all the trash strewn across the dunes, it really takes something away from the experience, and also the many... More

Best to get to see them at sunset. We hired a moped from our resort in Mui Ne for 24 hours and we went to the white sand dunes first and on the way back we stopped at the red sand dunes. Spectacular. Apart from the strong wind (you have to wear a helmet but it is also advisable to... More
