My second day in Mui Ne started very early. I hired a driver for the scooter to bring me to the white sand dunes. It is 30 km away from the resort I was staying. At exactly 5 am we left the resort. It was drizzling a bit but here I were again, hoping for a glam sunrise. Continue reading Vietnam: Exploring Mui Ne (Day 2)

Vietnam: Exploring Mui Ne (Day 1)

“Once upon a time, Mui Ne was an isolated stretch of beach where pioneering travellers camped on the sand. Times have changed and it’s now a string of beach resorts, which have fused into one long coastal strip. These resorts are, for the most part, mercifully low-rise and set amid pretty gardens by the sea. The original fishing village is still here, but tourists outnumber locals these days. Mui Ne is definitely moving upmarket, as more exclusive places open their doors, complemented by swish restaurants and swanky shops, but there is still a (kite) surfer vibe to the town.” – www.lonelyplanet.com

Vietnam: Ananda Resort in Mui Ne.

“The resort was built in a unique fusion of traditional Balinese and Vietnamese architectural and design elements. The vast tropical palm tree garden ensures a peaceful stay for guests, while shopping or dining venues are just a short stroll away.” – ww.agoda.com

There are quite number of resorts to stay in Mui Ne, ranging from budget to splurge. Though some resorts have narrow beachfront due to sand erosion. I booked a garden view bungalow in Ananda Resort from Agoda with free breakfast.

Samila Beach in Songkhla, Thailand. My Morning Dip.

It was my first swimming in a foreign beach. It was early in the morning after I watched the magnificent sunrise. I got the chance to pose at the mermaid statue as well. I strolled the beach the day beforeĀ  but it was very difficult to pose with the famous statue during peak hours due to the numerous tourists visiting the place. So I decided and conditioned myself to wake up early in the morning to watch the sunset, do the morning dip and pose with the mermaid. According to the locals’ belief, touching the bronze statue especially the breast will bring you luck. Hhhmmm. Optimized-_MG_3444 Continue reading Samila Beach in Songkhla, Thailand. My Morning Dip.
