At a bit more than 200km from Ho Chi Minh City (4hr drive), you’ll find the fishing village turned beach resort Mui Ne. Here you can catch your breath from the chaos of Ho Chi Minh City, enjoy some much needed fresh air, work on your tan and in the right season (between late October and April), this is THE place to go for windsurfing and kiting.
Mui Ne is famous for being the home of the fish sauce. There are loads of places where you can see, and smell, how this condiment is being made. It’s known as a true delicacy to ‘spice’ up any Asian dish.
That’s not the only thing Mui Ne is famous for, and no we’re not talking about its sand dunes. This time we want to highlight the beautiful fairy stream to you.
The Fairy stream is a small river tucked away between the beaches and fishing villages, and a rare sight to see. Its dramatic landscape of reds, whites, oranges, and pinks, that some even resemble a miniature version of the Grand Canyon, winds its way through a bamboo forest, boulders, and the dunes. The creek is colored by the clay and limestone particles that make the strange rock formation at the side of the stream look even more fairytale-like. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes walking through the warm water, with on one side the colorful limestone formations and on the other side green trees, to reach a waterfall. A great place to make some beautiful photos, and enjoy a bit of Mui Ne’s magical side!
