Mar 1, 2007 - Serenity Now

Hi everyone, We left Nha Trang yesterday and none too soon. It did get quieter as we anticipated but other than the beach there really is very little to do there. It was also very hot(I know, no sympathy from anyone back home). Not unlike other beaches and towns we have been, there are a lot of vendors selling their wares in Nha Trang. Unlike the other areas however, they are very pushy and we rarely had a meal without demanding we purchase something. When you said no, you were given the thrid degree. Nha Trang seems to be a town of...

Feb 20, 2007 - Mui Ne, Vietnam

February 20 We enjoyed our terrace cafe again for breakfast with excellent sea views, then headed out to tour the Fairy Springs and the nearby Sand dunes. The Fairy Spring was cool, it was through a red sand stone canyon and the bed of the spring was very soft mud/sand, so you had to take your shoes off to walk up, we also acquired a couple local kid-guides to show us up the spring, which ended in waterfalls. It was a fun side trip and fun to watch the local kids play in the spring. Next stop on the tour were the white sand dunes, where we...

Feb 17, 2007 - Nha Trang to Mui Ne, Vietnam

February 17 Nha Trang was a much bigger city than we expected, not the cozy seaside village we had hoped for! The beach itself was beautiful though and the water warm and clear. We enjoyed a nice run on the beach and then spent the day in the sun, relaxing after our long drive the previous day. We celebrated Tet that evening at the Nha Trang Sailing Club, complete w/ a Dragon Dance and live drumming. It was a fun night w/ great food too :) February 18 We got up early to catch our bus to Mui Ne, which arrived thirty minutes late, but...

Jan 22, 2007 - Dalat to Phan Rang

Distance: 110km (by bycicle) and about 700km (by train) We left Dalat late for a number of reasons. We slept through our alarm, took our time over breakfast, discovered a flat, and chatted with a fellow Canadian about traveling while trying to fix it. It was well past 9am by the time we hit the road. We had over 100kms to go, but we didn't worry since we knew we were in for a good 40km of fast downhill coasting. The first 40kms or so were more or less uphill. We enjoyed some tasty pineapple before our descent. The view on top was beautiful,...

Apr 13, 2006 - Mui Ne, not quite what we expected...

Mui Ne - palm fringed beaches; long stretches of sand; bamboo beach bungalos; red and white sand dunes; cascading waterfalls; deep, red canions - this was supposed to be where we would build a vacation home, if and when the law allowed for foreigners to purchase property. With its close proximity to Saigon where my family resides as well as its proximity to the lush mountainous areas of Dalat, we thought it would be the ideal location as well. We though this little fishing village would be just about perfect for us, and it was, right up to...

Jan 21, 2006 - Mu Nei & Nha Trang

After spending the last 10 days or so in hectic cities I decided it was time to head to the beach again for some more rest and relaxation! It's a tiring thing this travelling lark sometimes you know! Anyway I decided to head to Mui Ne, a small, sleepy beach town 5 hours north of Saigon. The place was lovely, really peaceful with really friendly people who just want to chat with you all the time to practise their English, one waitress in a restaurant I ate in even asked if I could come the following day to give her a proper lesson (I would...

May 8, 2005 - Mui Ne

We got to the beach in Muine on the 8th of March. The water was warm but a little to choppy for a truelly relaxing stay. Still we enjoyed a great day out in the amazing sand dunes. I (Peter) only with that I could have taken the jeep for a spin! I also racede some local kids dowm the dunes on sand dunme boards. 2 days later we were off the Dalat to escape the heat.

Apr 12, 2005 - Beach time!

Finally made it to the beautiful Vietnam beaches to relax! Mui Ne is a small little 1 street town in the south central coast of Vietnam, and its a prime place to just get in some sun and book reading. Our place was right on the beach so we literally just rolled out of bed into the water, then either read or napped or took walks on the beach. This beach is a big draw for wind and kite surfers and we got to see some guys really going for it when the wind picks up in the afternoon. Not much else to report since its such a small town that you...

Apr 3, 2005 - Mui Ne, Vietnam

Christine and I arrived in Mui Ne yesterday afternoon. We've gone swimming in the ocean, we've gone sliding in the sand dunes, checked out a fisher village, and wandered the local streets. We're staying in a simple bamboo bungalow for $3 USD each. Mosquitos all over the place, luckily we have nets with holes! By the way, tiger balm works wonders! Mosquitos avoid that stuff. Tomorrow we are heading to Dalat, a French-esque type city for a faster change of pace.

Feb 14, 2005 - Mui Ne and the sun.......

After a 19 hour bus journey we'd finally found some sun and happily spent a few days lounging about on the beach. Spent a romantic Valentine's evening eating dinner at a beach side restaurant-ever the casanova, Luke kindly bought us a bottle of wine but no flowers??!! Lying on the hammocks after dinner that evening listening to the waves made us really appreciate that we weren't at home opening our mammouth piles of cards that usually arrive on our doorsteps on Feb 14th. Hired a moped the following day and along with couple of Irish guys...

Jan 19, 2005 - Sandy beaches - Mui Ne

After the shopping extravaganza that was Hoi An, we headed to the beach for a couple of days of R&R (you'd be surprised how exhausting shopping with me is - Patrick needed a rest!) Rather than hitting the busy main Vietnamese beach area of Nha Trang, we moved through to the quiet of Mui Ne, 20 km of undisturbed sandy beach. After we arrived I reviewed the description our trusty travel book had given this place and noticed the small print stating that this area was great for wind surfing...'gale force winds rock the area from January to...
