Besides enjoying the beach there are other things to do such as visiting the sand dunes but the newest attraction is the Fishermen Show. I saw an advertisement saying that the new Fishermen Show was a two million dollar, multi-media cultural presentation. When I contacted them they said that would not open for several weeks. Then, a couple days later they emailed saying they would be having a presentation that night. So
we went. I think the reason for the impromptu presentation was because several tour buses wanted to take their clients but there were only a few others. For $20 we got VIP seats. The auditorium is huge but only about one-tenth full. The show started with cultural dances from several countries including Russia and Vietnam. The most amazing part was the colorful water fountain show that served as the backdrop for all the stage presentations. It made Bellagio’s look like child’s play. The
While in Mui Ne we checked out a couple of other hotels. There are accommodations for every pocketbook from backpackers to luxury-seekers. One of the hotels we visited was the high-end Victoria Phan Thiet. The hotel is lovely but it is located away from the city which didn’t appeal to us since we like to walk the streets in the evenings, listen to the singers, and
then find a little place to eat. (meals are usually about $3) Many places are losing their beach to erosion but Victoria is trying something new. They have put down Geotubes - long tubes made of a flexible plastic that are laid down close to the shoreline. The theory is that the waves will bring in the sand, deposit it on the shore side of the tube and eventually build up the beach. It is considered a better and more eco-friendly solution to beach erosion that what people have been using. The one at the Victoria has only been in place for one year but it looked like it might be working.
