Tây Nguyên

Mũi Né is a beach resort town along the Vietnam Eastern Sea in Southeast Vietnam. With a long, palm-lined stretch of sand, it has steady wind conditions (in the dry season) that make it a top destination for windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and other water sports.

North of the strip is a vast expanse of towering red and white sand dunes affording views of the coast and surrounding countryside, and tucked among them is green-hued Silver Lake. Fairy Stream runs from the coast inland through red clay and limestone rock formations and bamboo forests. In the hilly area around the Prince’s Castle (the remains of a circa-1911 French estate house) are the Po Shanu Cham Towers, 9th-century remnants of the ancient Champa kingdom that once ruled the region
