Region & Excursions in the Phan Thiet - Mui Ne area

Lying to the North East of Ho Chi Minh City is the seaside town of Phan Thiet. Both Phan Thiet and the adjoining Mui Ne beach are ideal spots to escape the hustle and bustle of Saigon without having to travel too far.

The beach is pleasant and always refreshed by sea breezes. The local seafood is a delight and the locals are happy to let everyone enjoy the break without too much intrusion.
The main reason people come here is for relaxation on the beach, however, that doesn't mean there aren't sights to see and adventures to be had. Venture onto the beach early enough and you can join the locals in hauling in the catch for the morning.
Sightseeing tours can be arranged by jeep, mini van, four wheel drive and bikes (upon availability).
