Red Sand Dunes
One of the sceneries in Mui Ne, once clinging to the steps of famous poets, artists, and photographers…is Mui Ne Red sand dunes. It is also called “Flying Sand Dune” by its constant – changing shape in each day and each hour… The red sand dunes overlook Mui Ne and are a popular place from which to watch the sunset or sunrise. The intense orangecolour of the sand dunes often matches the orange colors of the setting sun.
This is considered a unique sand dune in Vietnam originating from an hundreds of year ancient iron mine. Sand here has several dozens of colors that have encharmed sand-painting artists when they are searching for materials to create exquisitely colorful sand paintings.
