Filed under: travel — Tags: , , — mat @ 1:37 am

Last day in Mui Ne. We had really lazy days and and great stay at Mui Ne hills. Mui Ne hills Erik runs this hotel which is really a place to relax. Everything satisfied us, room and pool, breakfast and the staff as well, especially the german manager. All of them were very helpful and attentively.

We had a ride with our AirBlade motorbike :) to watch the famous dunes of Mui Ne. First the red ones than the white ones. And I must say it´s impressive to see a landscape which is can be find usually in a desert like Sahara or Gobi.

Therefor we rented the bike for 24 hrs we went to Phan Thiet as well, as small town closed to the famous beach. A lot of new construction areas along the street and we heard that a Formula 1 race course is planned as well. The whole area will be a place for $$$ people within next years.

Today is the bus to Saigon or HCMC at 1 pm. So let´s see what the city has to offer :)

Mui Ne – more russians

Filed under: travel — Tags: , , — mat @ 3:15 pm

We arrived in Mui Ne after 6 hrs ride by bus. Hotel is clean and may be 30 $ would be enough but staff is friendly and the atmosphere nice. However we thought that we had left the russian enclave Nah Trang but unfortunately even Mui Ne is 80 % russian occupied territory. *sigh*
We went out for dinner and found a valuable restaurant. Most other locations much to expensive and some of them have a russian menu only. Well you may understand that if there´s no vietnamese and no english language we feel not welcomed at those places. And while we had dinner we were discussing if either we are too old or the times have changed. Here in Vietnam we didn´t find a place like we know and have been in Thailand. Or may be we glorify the old days at Koh Payam when we were sitting around a table and talked about everything and anything. May be we saw enough places and we´re not made for those trips any longer. Next vacation brings us may be to the Harz (famous landscape in the middle of Germany) or to New Zealand or Canada. Too many “may be`s” right now. Let´s see what will happen.
Tomorrow we`ll rent a motorbike and go for the famous dunes and seeking for some smooth local areas nearby.
