On our second day in Vietnam, we've decided to see the white and red sand dunes. Yay. I've never been to Ilocos so this should be my first time to see sand dunes. Haha. I told our hostel to arrange our transportation to Mui Ne. We paid US $18/pax for a roundtrip sleeper bus fare. Ho Chi Minh to Mui Ne takes about 5 to 6 hours by bus. I brought Combos for long trips like this one. Haha.
Unfortunately, we reached Mui Ne around 3pm, and the group tours already started by this time. We were supposed to get the private tour which would cost us twice the regular rate, but then another group joined us. The regular group tour is US $5/pax, and we paid US $7. Since we started a bit late, we agreed that we would skip the Fairy Stream to cover both the white and red sand dunes. We started the tour in the Mui Ne Fishing Village.

We spent around an hour in the white sand dunes fooling around and taking photos. Our last stop was the red sand dunes. We were hoping to catch the sunset, and we did!
