According to cachedhealth.com, Mui Ne is a small resort village on the shores of the South China Sea. There is no airport in the town itself, nor in neighboring Phan Thiet, and you can get here from Russia only by air. The path runs through the two nearest airports – in Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang. Both of them accept flights from many major cities – Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Omsk and others. Most routes with two transfers are in Guangzhou, Wuhan, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Hanoi and Shanghai.
China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Emirates, Etihad Airways and others fly from Domodedovo, Vnukovo and Sheremetyevo to Vietnam. The only direct route Moscow – Ho Chi Minh City without transfers is from Aeroflot, flights are not daily. Prices start from 1000 USD in both directions, travel time is about 10 hours. The cheapest flights are offered by Chinese and Arab carriers, the journey takes from 15 hours to 1.5 days. The prices on the page are for June 2022.
Flying to Nha Trang is a little more expensive, there are no direct flights.
From the northern capital you can get by planes of Aeroflot, Es Seven, Turkish Airlines, Emirates and other companies. Ticket prices start from 800 USD, you will have to spend about 20 hours on the way. The fastest route from Emirates is 19 hours.
From airport to city
Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat Air Gate is half an hour’s drive from the bus station from which long-distance slipbuses depart. It is easier and faster to travel by taxi. Transportation is carried out by the Futa Bus Line company (off. site in English). Flights to Mui Ne run 15 times a day, you will have to spend another 4-6 hours on the way.
The territory of Mui Ne is quite small, but it is better to use public transport to get around it – it takes a long time to walk from one end of the village to the other. One bus runs through the entire resort and further to Phan Thiet. Stops are located on the main and only street, along which there are almost all hotels. Ticket price – 13000-16000 VND.
For trips to attractions, it is better to use a taxi. The fare is inexpensive – a standard trip will cost 200,000 VND. Although many cars are equipped with meters, it is worth negotiating the price in advance. Taxis can be ordered by phone or stopped on the street. Most of the cars are new, with air conditioning and other amenities. Motorcycle taxis are widespread in Mui Ne. The fare is even lower – 30,000-70,000 VND per km at night. It may not always be convenient, but faster than by car. For those who are afraid of high-speed driving, it is better to tell the driver about it – he will drive more slowly.
There should be no problems with communication – in Mui Ne, many people speak English and even Russian.
It is convenient to explore the resort and its surroundings on a bicycle – the roads are not bad, the terrain is flat. You can take transport in many hotels or rental offices in front of them.
Mui Ne Hotels
Regardless of the cost of living, all Mui Ne hotels are located on the first coastline, a 5-minute walk from the sea. The price difference speaks not only about the set of options, but also about the quality of the beach at the hotel. Cheap options should be looked for closer to Cape Mui Ne, while expensive and fashionable options are closer to Phan Thiet.
The most common type of accommodation in the village is resort hotels, most of which include breakfast in the price, free parking and Wi-Fi. For those who do not want to swim in the sea, on the territory of many, even the cheapest, there are pools with sun loungers and umbrellas. The cost of rooms in hotels without stars and from 1 * starts from 300,250 VND, cheaper only in shared rooms of hostels – from 50,000 VND per bed.
Rent a Car
Only experienced drivers should rent a car in Mui Ne – the traffic situation is tense, many locals do not follow the rules, so driving here is quite dangerous. In a small resort village, there is nowhere to go especially if long-distance travel is not planned, it is quite possible to get by with buses and taxis. However, those who come for a long time and do not want to sit in one place should rent a car and go to neighboring regions.
There are no serious traffic jams in Mui Ne itself; in larger cities, traffic congestion is not uncommon. Many hotels and restaurants have free parking, parking near the sights is paid, but the price is purely symbolic – from 5,000 VND.
To rent a car, you will need a Vietnamese driver’s license. Tourists can also get it, but it will take about a week to complete the documents.
The choice of rental offices is greater in large cities, it is better to take a car in Ho Chi Minh City or Nha Trang. Only small local firms operate in Mui Ne.
