    Where Should I Book My Hotel in Mui Ne?

    If you’re a first-time visitor to Mui Ne, it’s important to know where to stay and which hotel that best suits your budget and preference.

    Planning a trip to Mui Ne for the first time can be a daunting task, especially in terms of which area and hotel to book. As with any foreign destination, doing so without proper research can lead to unnecessary travel expenses and hassles. The capital of Binh Thuan Province, Phan Thiet hosts plenty of inexpensive hotels and resorts, most of which are set along Mui Ne Beach. This coastal town remains relatively traditional despite its rising popularity as a tourist destination, where you can find traditional fishing villages, outdoor markets, pagodas and temples, as well as the spectacular red and white sand dunes.
    The beaches are ideal for a wide range of activities, including surfing, snorkelling, and sunbathing while resort-owned lounges, bars and bistros serve authentic Vietnamese and Asian fare as well as seafood from the East Sea. To help you decide where to stay in Mui Ne, we’ve compiled a quick rundown of its city centre and surrounding beaches, as well as the pros and cons of each locale.
