Fomina Svetlana and Nazarova Galina, businesswomen from Novy Urengoy City, spoke highly of their stay at the Terracotta-Mui Ne resort, where they spent their nights in bungalows.

“Although we had toured Da Lat and HCM City, the bungalows in Mui Ne were by far the highlights of our trip,” Svetlana wrote through e-mail.

“Our trip through Viet Nam was a completely eye opening surprise,” she added.

Karachurin Marat and Kolegova Olga, both from Traikovskiy, said that they had fallen in love with Viet Nam, its friendly people, amazing landscapes and, especially, Mui Ne’s sunny beach.

Ngo Thu Huong, a sale person at the Phan Thiet-based Ocean Dunes Resort, said that there were many options for tourists to explore and spend their holidays in Phan Thiet and surrounding areas.

“Options include one morning in Phan Thiet, visiting the Mui Ne Dunes, touring the city by sampan and cyclo and travelling along the Mui Ne Beach by jeep,” Huong said.She said that families could book tours that offer additional activities such as rock climbing, mountain biking, trekking, canoeing and windsurfing in Mui Ne. Visitors could also fish from the Ke Ga lighthouse, constructed by the French in 1899, or visit the ancient Cham Towers.

Huong added that the White Lake and the Sakyamuni Buddha in Taku Mountain, 700m above sea level, together with the Binh Chau hot springs, were some of the most visited destinations along the southern coast.
