Fun places to play in Phan Thiet
White Sand Dunes and Golden Sand Dunes (Mui Ne)
In the right season, you can see the beautiful Lotus Lake in the middle of the vast dunes. The water in the lake is lovely and clear.
An excellent green color will cover the white sand dunes from a distance. This place is most beautiful when the sunset is in harmony with the white color of the beautiful sand.
Coming to Bau Trang, you should experience the same 4-wheeled motorcycle, overcome the steep sand slopes, and delight in conquering the white dunes like the desert. If you do not ride a motorbike, rent a jeep to run on the romantic dunes and save beautiful photos with 1-0-2.
In the afternoon, when the heat of the sand has calmed down, you can walk barefoot on the sand and watch the beauty of the sun streak in the sand again.
Golden Sand Dunes (Flying Sand Dunes) is a small undulating desert, one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in Mui Ne, attracting domestic and foreign tourists to admire the beauty of sand, sun, and wind, overlooking the blue sky…
The dunes run from Binh Thuan to Ninh Thuan, although Mui Ne has the most attractive location. This is the only dune in Vietnam that originates from an ancient iron mine that has existed for hundreds of years. Traveling to Phan Thiet without visiting this place will be a deplorable thing in the journey.
The golden sand shines in the sun, each layer of wind blows to form a dune like a desert, and the wind keeps eroding and pushing each other endlessly to create countless interesting shapes, looking close and far away.
