After our walking tour at the Fairy Stream, we rode our rented 4×4 jeep for a quick stop to see the fishing village in Mui Ne, Vietnam. You can’t miss this place as you can easily see this tourist spot from the coastal road.
Fishing Village in Mui Ne, Vietnam
February 8, 2012
Hundreds of colorful boats are lined up and anchored in the bay when you drop by this area. Since the activity is just a quick stop, this is going to be just a quick blog post. lol
Fishing boats in Mui Ne, Vietnam
quick photo op at the fishing village
So nice to see this fishing harbour which left me wondering if there’s still space for the boats at the back to move around. Of course there’s still space and it was only my eyes that’s fooling me due to the angle where I was looking from.
the jars on the right are the filled with fish sauce

One thing you might notice when you’re in this coastal area is that it smells like fish. Even in the guesthouse where we stayed, you can literally sense that fishing is a major livelihood in this town. We also saw plenty of jars and found out that these contain fish sauce known as nuoc mam which are being produced in Mui Ne. I got used to the smell in a few hours.
It’s great to see how locals live in this area. You can see that children also help out in their family’s source of income.

We didn’t have much time for more photos as we were already late for our next destination. We had to hurry if we wanted to catch the sunset at the Red Sand Dunes.. Up next, I’ll be writing about the white sand dunes experience.
I wasn’t kidding about this being a quick blog post. haha

this is the place I could have visited but haven't kasi naubos na lahat rooms when I booked for an overnight stay. 🙁
I regret not going to this place when I was in Vietnam last October. I should've chosen this instead of Nha Trang. Oh well.. next time! Looking forward to reading about the sand dunes! Awesome photos, btw!
@Wends: too bad there were no rooms Wends! You should check it out again next time. Really worth your time to drop by this place!
@Marianne: Nha Trang seems like a nice spot too. Next time, you should check Mui Ne out. If we pass by Vietnam again, we'll check Nha Trang out. Thanks for stopping by this blog! 🙂
