Mui Ne and Phan Thiet are located on the Vietnamese coast, about 200 km north of Ho Chi Minh City. Together, these traditional fishing villages are fast becoming popular leisure destinations. Resort-style developments have been rising along the coastline, though so far the lives of the fishing communities remain unchanged and Mui Ne’s long beach is quiet and serene – great for walks, jogging and spectacular sunsets.

    Phan Tiet, which is rather larger than its neighbor, is famous for its fish sauce, an ingredient in most Vietnamese dishes. It, too, has a beautiful beach. There's a wide range of accommodations, and restaurants offer a huge selection of seafood at very affordable prices. There are golf courses, beautiful pagodas, spectacular red and white sand dunes, and a variety of water sports to enjoy in Phan Tiet.
