Mui Ne is dubbed as the Resort Capital of Vietnam because of its  15 km strips of beach resorts. Most of these beach side accommodations  can be found at Ham Tien also  known as  Nguyen Ding Chieu.
From Ho Chi Mihn, it is a five(5) hour bus ride. Most bus  departs from Pham Ngu Lao St. in Ho Chi Mihn and arrives at   Nha Trang. But before reaching its final destination it will make a stop over in Pan Thiet and from here its a short drive to Mui Ne. 
There two types of buses, one is the sleeper bus and the other is the ordinary bus. I had the chance to experience both type of buses. Going to Mui Ne I took the very comfortable double deck bed sleeper bus. Included in the  ticket price is a complimentary blanket, a bottle of water and a plastic bag for shoes. Back to Ho Chi Mihn , I took the ordinary bus. Its  just like any other bus with air condition and seat  that can(hardly) be reclined. My hotel, Pandanus Resort, did the reservation for my return transportation. Part of their service is fetching their passengers in their respective hotels. 

Aside from the beach resorts, Mui Ne is famous for the following:

1. Fairy stream or locally known as Suoi Tien - this is their own version of the  grand canyon. Its an ankle deep  river characterize by reddish sand and rock boulders. 

2. Red Sand Dunes  also know as Doi Cat  - it sand is actually color orange. The dunes are good for sliding using plastic slides sold by children along the highway.
3. Fishing Village or fish market - this is where local fishermen dumped their catch of the day. Scattered all over the place are   clams riddled of shells.

4. Mui Ne Market or more known as Lang Chai Mui Ne - is the town's public market where everything from meat, poultry , vegetables to fresh flowers and small furniture are sold.
