This is one of our favorite place during our 9 day tour in Vietnam. It has everything a resort should have: two good size pools, private beach and most importantly they serve beautiful breakfast. It was a smart choice to stay here as we were able to relax and rejuvenate. However, a couple things surprised us. One, the receptionist was not very helpful. We asked a few questions regarding getting around the place, she gave very short answers and seemed inpatient. Two was their spa facilities which was by far the worst experience that we have. When Poh and I stepped into their spa facilities, we started to doubt our decision. The facilities looked shabby and the air was musty. Both of us had Aloe Vera facial. I cannot believe they used raw aloe vera and put them on our face. The whole experience was unpleasant, stingy pain and distressing! Would recommend the resort to people but definitely not the spa!

Not long after we got into our hotel room, I got a message from Kat saying she was in the hostel opposite ours, literally 10 feet away! We met outside our hostel for a fag, then she went to shower and we hung around until she was ready. Kat had been travelling from Hanoi on a motorbike with an American bloke called John, who was in the hostel with her. We all went out to have some food, and found a nice little place with child size chairs to have some noodles, and caught ...
... I met from New York. As we got to the top on of the workers offered to drive us down the steep dunes. Hell yes!! It was so much fun, whilst I only have a recording of the first dune the second was much steeper so I was gripping on for life as this young Vietnamese guy was wetting himself with laughter. After handing back the quad, we had to wait ages for a couple in our group who had wondered off. Everyone was pretty annoyed as they made us ...
After Saigon, me and the Honda headed for Mui Ne, which is a small town on the south, east coast of Vietnam. Once i was out of Saigon, it was pretty much follow the main highway AH-1 all the way to Phan Thiet. Once in Phan Thiet, i had to come off the main road and head west for a short time before arriving in Mui Ne. The trip went well apart from the fact the bike was kangaroo-ing up the hills. I put this down to the carburetta needing a clean. ...
... to get to you have to walk all the way up the stream through the water. No one else was there! The setting is incredible - right at the edge of the dunes, with limestone karst rocks that have been extremely weathered! Amazing! You'll have to wait for the pictures from my Nikon :) Next stop Nha Trang. Will be sleeping on the coach I ...
... and maybe the reason for the early review request. We dropped our bags and headed out to the red dunes. Locals will rent you a piece of plastic to ride the sand and the kids will wax it to make it faster. We climbed over the first sandy peak, with tired legs. The town is hidden and you could be in the desert. Sand boarding isn't exactly white knuckle and you have to find a well ridden and compacted track to get any speed. The wind was picking up and we started to ...
