The few days we had in Mui Ne were really enjoyable and I think it's fair to say we made the most of the fresh fruit and yoghurt at breakfast, the sun and sea in the morning and the afternoon and the delicious seafood for both lunch and dinner
The rest of our time as I mentioned was pretty much dedicated to the beach as the weather held up the entire time we were there, well apart from one night where the flooding we had seen in Hoi An and the rain we had experienced in Nha Trang came back to haunt us. Having gone out for dinner the rain had started and got progressively worse until when we finally gave up hope it would ease off and walked back the road which was so flooded motorbikes were having to be pushed and cars were touch and go as to whether they would make it or not (the weather was back to bright sun the following morning!).
Not much else to report on about our time in Mui Ne except that one night we decided to splash out about and headed to a rather nice looking restaurant. We ordered a fresh lobster to share and some rather extravagant cocktails to accompany our meal which was awesome. the whole meal cost us all of about $12 each including drinks but out in Vietnam this is seen as considerably pricey so the waitress through in some mussels for us as a starter as a gesture of good will.
On reflection I think its fair to say that by this point in our travels we deserved to have a few days by a beach and we definitely made the most of it because we knew we had to leave all too soon to continue our travels heading down to the city of Ho Chi Minh (AKA Saigon).
