Fish Sauce Plants
Pay a visit to the flavorful factory responsible for Vietnam’s ubiquitous nuoc mam (fish sauce). Here the mixture of anchovies and squid juice is prepared in huge vats and then left to ferment in the heat of the sun, before being shipped around the country.
Boasting the best par-3 hole in Vietnam, the Ocean Dunes Golf Club has a great reputation among golf aficionados. Just a short hop from Mui Ne, down the coast towards Phan Thiet, pros and amateurs alike can work on their swing around 18 holes, or relax in the elegant clubhouse.
Just north of Mui Ne bay, along the coast, lies a sleepy fishing village, home to countless colorful little boats bringing delicious fresh seafood to the market. For a truly local experience, don’t miss a stroll around to take in the sights and smells.
Mui Ne Cooking School
Overlooking the ocean, in lush gardens, the Mui Ne Cooking School offers the chance for visitors to learn to cook real Vietnamese cuisine with expert locals. A class includes a tour of the local market to buy ingredients and a number of authentic recipes.
A short drive down the coast from Mui Ne, Phan Thiet is one of Vietnam’s most important fishing ports. It’s worth the journey to experience a busy, working port, to see the day’s catch being brought ashore and to enjoy some truly fresh local seafood.
Po Sha Inu Tower
A derelict remainder of the ancient Cham people who once ruled Vietnam stands atop Ong Hoang Hill, overlooking Mui Ne bay. The intricately-carved stone towers of Po Sha Inu attract visitors all year round with their crumbling grandeur.
Just out of Mui Ne bay are two sets of sand dunes. The dramatically-colored red dunes undulate down to the ocean, while the larger white dunes stretch for miles around a crystal blue lake filled with lotus flowers. Adventurous sand-surfers flock to both sets to slide down the slopes or to sit with a picnic, enjoying the views of the water.
Because of its tropical climate and the strong breezes to which it is exposed, Mui Ne is a popular destination for watersports. Kitesurfers and windsurfers flock in their droves to the beach in high season for a day on the water.
