Vietnam Beach Scene
by H. Tsory
Mui Ne is a mellow beach town on the South China Sea about 4-5 hours from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). We hired a driver for a 3am night flight out of the city to avoid traffic, and spent the first night at Novella resort, a more upscale option. We intended to stay just 1 night but couldn’t pull ourselves away, and our accommodations got progressively cheaper each night until we ended up in a backpacker hostel. Kite surfing is a huge draw in Mui Ne.
