The bus at Mui Ne dropped us off coincedentally right outside where we'd decided to stay so that was easy. The place is really small, which was quite a relief as the last few places we've been were all cities. It's just one road, mostly with resorts all down the beach side and restaurants all down the other. Our place was nice, one of the few cheaper places on the bach front, we got a room and when you walked out the door you were pretty much in the sea
We didn't do much the first day we were there, went to a bar on the way to finding another bar which turned out to be a lot further away than we thought so didn't reach it, and the one we did go in was dead so they kept giving us free stuff like garlic bread and cocktail shots to keep us there. Didn't work so well as we didn't stay that long got a played some pool but the free stuff was good.
The next day we spent sunbathing and chilling out. Got a bit bored, read a lot. Had an expensive dinner, wandered around and booked a sand dune thing for the next day. On Wednesday we got up early and went to the meeting place at 8am, they then took us in the oldest jeep in the world, first to the Red Dunes where we did some sand sledging, was awesome but there were thousands of kids who really wanted to do stuff for us and give us sledges and help us use them and then charge us loads for it. Oh well such is the way. Climbing up sand dunes was knackering though, plus we got covered in sand which was particularly painful on my (EW) lower back which was burnt from the day before. Next we went to the White Dunes which was much nicer, plus there was only 1 child instead of thousands trying to get us to "slide down"
We got back to our hotel at about 12 which was checkout time so we had the quickest shower as we had brought half the dunes back in our clothes then we chilled for half an hour and got some lunch whilst waiting for our bus. The bus to the next place Nha Trang took about 5 hours and we saw an awesome sunset on the way.
So that's about it for Mui Ne entry, was an awesome place and was very nice to chill for a day or two, Nha Trang is party town apparently so I'm sure you'll hear tales in the next entry.
Loads of love and kisses
