While enjoying the relaxing beaches of Mui Ne, we thought it would be great to explore the place a little more. Vietnam in general is characterized by a tropical climate making it littered with diverse vegetation and wet environments. This is why is so surprising and exciting that in the area of Mui Ne you can find deserts! So without thinking it twice, me and my friends rent a bike to ride by the wide coastal roads that would lead us to two sets of giant sand dunes, “The White Dunes” and “The Red Sand Dunes”.
The White Sand Dunes are 50km away from Mui Ne central and is the most attractive place to visit. They are by far the larger dunes and are known by locals as “Bau Trang” or “White Lake”. I would recommend to go there by the sunset for the Sunlight is smooth enough to enjoy all the beauty of it’s reflection on the dunes creating golden sparkles in the air. I was amazed by the natural waves on the surface created by the wind which make an irregular yet beautiful pattern. The sand is so soft it makes you want be lying there for a while but the wind is stronger than I thought and sometimes the sand floating in the air makes it hard to enjoy the view…and it makes it even harder to pose!
But in the end, this is one of the most epic views I’ve been able to see! I mean, it has a sense of peacefulness yet so furious and unstable. It’s amazing how these giant dunes move from place to place by the wind. Also got to admire the different tones of colors from an angle to another…It’s so warm!
I was wearing this shamanic themed shirt I thought would be the best outfit for a desert. It immediately put me in the right mood when posing over there! Isn’t this just the right place to wear this shirt? I thought so too!
Things you should take with you when visiting a desert:
2. Scarf so it can protect your hair or your body
4. Hand sanitizer
5. Comfy shoes
7. Mask or bandana
