Good to know
Mui Ne is on the southern end of Vietnam. If you are venturing all around the country, Mui Ne is a great place to end up on with soft-sanded beaches, quiet waves. Of course, what many globetrotters visit for are the red sand dunes. Take a hot air balloon ride over them and get a bird’s eye view. In general, Mui Ne is a perfect place for deep relaxation. After visiting the Thap Po Sah Inu temple, go to the beach. There, you can meet local fishermen and learn about local history. The nightlife in Mui Ne is growing steadily, allowing a great time to be had without the feeling of seclusion.

The local way
Crazy train ride but easiest and cheapest way to get from HCMC to Mui Ne. I was traveling during Tet so it was insanely packed, but it's still the best and cheapest option.
