Sunset in Mui Ne

A small traditional boat converted into a seating area for guests at Cham Villas in Mui Ne, southern Vietnam

After a great couple of nights in Saigon it was time to jump on the coach to the beaches at Mui Ne.
The coach journey was epic in itself, I suggest if you are planning on doing it make sure you have a good book or something to watch.  The last thing you want to do spend six hours with your heart in your mouth wondering if you will manage to overtake the inevitable truck before a head-on collision with a coach coming in the opposite direction.
Luckily when we arrived in Mui Ne the fantastic Cham Villas was awaiting, I was so happy to check in and couldn’t think of a better place to ease the stress from the journey.
I was not expecting Mui Ne to be as photogenic as Saigon. I was looking forward to do a lot of lounging around on the beach and reading a few good books, although there was a lot of that there was still plenty of opportunities to take pictures. Even just a short stroll from the sun lounger and you could see the many kite surfers enjoying the breeze.
Fortunately my friend Linh Phanroy recommended an excursion to the Red Sand Dunes at sunset which probably made some of my favourite photos of any of my trips to Vietnam. The colours really came alive with the sun in the right spot.
