Mui Ne


Mui Ne (Wikipedia) is a coastal fishing town in the Binh Thuan Province of Vietnam. The town with approximately a population of 25,000 people is a ward of the city of Phan Thiet. Mui Ne and the other wards of Phan Thiet that stretch along the coast for approximately 50 kilometres have transformed into a resort destination since the mid 1990s, when many visited the area to view the solar eclipse of October 24, 1995.

Most notably, tourism has developed in the area from the city to Mui Ne, which has more than a hundred beach resorts, as well as restaurants, bars, shop and cafes. Mostly tourists from Australia and Russia have been the norm to visit there.

Mui Ne ward has two beaches; Ganh Beach and Suoi Nuoc (river water) Beach, both with a number of resorts and a few shops and restaurants. But the most highly developed area is Rang Beach in Ham Tien Ward, which extends West of Mui Ne. Strong sea breezes make all three beaches very popular for kitesurfing and windsurfing. The tourist season is from December to April when the average temperature is 27 degrees C and the climate is hot and dry for much of the year.

There is always a drawback and things aren't as nice as they're all made out to be and one of the things to consider when visiting or stomping locally around Phan Thiet and its wards in this part of the world is; unexploded mines still left over from the Vietnam war. It reference to a film made in Vietnam of the realities of unexploded mines in this area ; quote; It is unknown how many unexploded ordinances may be still be present in Binh Thuan Province, though accidental deaths continue in recent years.
