Part of the mui ne tour. (6-7$/pax) Kids will try to make some money doing rentals of sleds. They start a 50000 dong per sled but will accept less than a dollar if you bargain. It really hard to pick up speed in the sand that also is very hot and burns. Most people give up after a few tries... More

We took the local bus to the dunes that runs up and down the strip. Cost was like 13000 dong each one way. It dropped us right in front of the dunes. We spent hours playing in the sand. Doing flips and taking photos waiting for sunset. We then caught the bus back to town. It is something different to... More

I enjoyed my trip here, but this place is a bit overrated. I had to buy something to use the local bathroom, a concrete stall with a trench. Well, OK. I get it. Nothing terribly wonderful, but it is one of the local "must-sees."

If you live in a country with sand dunes then this is definitely not an attraction. We got sold on a jeep tour that went to the red and white dunes/fishing village and fairy stream. What a pointless trip! And the red dunes, the worst. Nothing to see, give it a miss and be warned of the jeep drivers and... More

Went in the late afternoon and this was the favorite for my 13 year old son between the dunes - he loved using the slide and flipping down the dunes. Be prepared to be bombarded by people selling slides when you first get there though. Sunset was wonderful - the sand is on fire and the shadows do amazing things... More

After battling through the hordes of people trying rent us sleds - we had a good time. The sleds weren't very "slippery" but the kids had fun running around and flipping down the dunes. Go in the late afternoon to see the sunset!

The best way to see the red and white dunes is to take yourself. We went in the middle of the day and weren't hassled by anyone. V few other tourists and we had a good time walking around
