Our first stop was the Fairy Spring (Suối Tiên). Our tour guide, really just our driver, dropped us off and told us we had 40 minutes. A young teenager acted as our impromptu guide even though it was very obvious where we had to go: just follow the stream! At the end, he asked for money. I don’t think so. I already paid for a tour…
We passed by big vats of stinky nuoc mam (fish sauce).

There were very nice and interesting rock formations.
Next we stopped by the fishing village of Mũi Né where little fish (anchovies?) were laid out to dry in the sun. I’m not sure if they were the same fish, but The Boyfriend and I encountered little jumping fish when we were swimming in the ocean. They were just jumping in and out of the water, even into my swimsuit.

Fish spread to dry.
Not only does Mũi Né have sand dunes, it also has a canyon. So many interesting sights!
The white sand dunes were far out but well worth the trip. At the bottom of the sand dunes is a nice lake too.
At the other end of the lake were some horses. Some tourists rode the horses up the sand dunes…
White Sand Dunes. Can you belive this is Vietnam?
This little boy followed us, trying to convince us to slide down the hills. Although we didn’t, we gave him 10,000 VND because he was so persistent (and cute!).
The boy slid down the hill himself!
I like the temporary trail left behind.
Finally, we hit the yellow sand dunes, which had more of a golden colour. The yellow sand dunes are much closer to Mũi Né and so had much more tourists than the white sand dunes.
