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.

Postcard: Old Lady at the Floating Market

This old lady was selling fresh young coconut. She was just staying in that corner to avoid the busy river with lot of boats, both tourists and vendors. I was at the other side of the riverbank. She suddenly caught my attention while I had my brunch. I grabbed my camera and zoomed the lens to capture this image. The moment I looked at her, I got mixed emotions. That kind of moment is the reason why sometimes I travelled solo. I want to see and feel the reality of life, those ordinary things. Honestly, at that very moment, I got teary eyed. I miss my mom!
