Getting Around Mui Ne
Getting around Mui Ne is easy. Alot of what you need - beach, bars,
restaurants and shops - are in walking distance, but if you're not keen on doing
the legwork, after a hard day on the water, there are plenty of other options:
Taxi - Meter taxis are plentiful in Mui Ne, and the flag drop (minimum
charge) is 10,000VND (50 cents USD), thereafter about 12,000VND a kilometre.
If you do a downwinder to Phan Thiet, you'll also have no problem finding one there
to take you back to Mui Ne.
Xe Om - Motorbike taxis are everywhere in Vietnam, and Mui Ne is
no exception. When you can't find a regular taxi, at 4am on a Sunday morning outside
Pogo bar, for example, then a Xe Om (literal translation: "Bike Hug") is a great
option. Bargain hard, BEFORE you get on the back - in the daytime you should be
able to go a couple of kilometres for no more than 10,000VND, at night they tend
to charge a bit more.
Motorbike Hire - If you want complete independence of movement,
its no problem to hire a motorbike, by the day or for longer periods. We can help
you find a reputable hirer with decent quality bikes. Nearly all bikes in Vietnam
are below 150cc, with semi or fully automatic gearboxes and very easy to ride, so
you can concentrate on the traffic. The driving style in Vietnam is chaotic, and
nothing like you're used to, so a great deal of caution is advised.
Car Hire with Driver - We can arrange an air-conditioned 12 seater
Mercedes van for $60USD per day - great for exploring out of the way kitesurfing
spots, or visiting Taku Mountain's reclining buddha.
Jeep - for trips to the sand dunes, or an escorted downwinder it is possible to rent a jeep with driver for part or all of the day. We can arrange this, so get in touch if you need it.
