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

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.

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
