We checked in to Joe's, enjoyed a welcome cocktail at the bar and found our room... a little bungalow right on the beach front, looking out from our balcony onto the sea... bliss! We'd arrived and we essentially intended to not move for several days... and we achieved it.
Upon arrival at Joe's we spent blissful days swimming in the sea ( …
... 8217;d heard this place was a retreat where people generally head to escape hectic Saigon. We found our hotel and the owner was a northern guy from England, he upgraded us to the best room in the place as it was available and then we headed out to see what was about. The beach stretches for miles and miles but all the restaurants, hotels and shops have barricaded it from the main road and it’s only accessible by going ...
... Despite enjoying all this wonderful seafood, perhaps the food highlight of Mui Ne was the cheeseboard we ordered one evening. I enjoy my cheese and they don''t really do cheese in Asia (laughing cow triangle cheese doesn't count!). It was magnificent and if people saw us eating it, they must have wondered why we had looks of pure ecstasy on our faces! It made 3 months without cheese worthwhile!

... spoken to management and they informed me that a local agency, for a small fee, could process my passport and extend my visa from the 25th of August which is when I thought it expired.

Our stay at Joe's was punctuated with friendly smiles, good food and drink, beautiful scenery and kite surfers. The staff were all lovely, trying their best with English and always happy. The owner, Joe, was around constantly and made a point of checking in whenever he could to make sure things were alright. The location was perfect, just off the main drag of the beach but right on the water to be scenic without being crazily busy. The bungalow we stayed in was right at the back, facing on to the water, and was clean, spacious and light, a delight. This was a delightful place to stay and a true escape from the Big City!
