- and what’s also cheap in Vietnam, is to travel with an English-speaking guide from Dima-tour.
Of course, as in any other country, the prices for housing vary a lot. It all depends on the personal needs of the tourist.
Here you can rent an expensive villa and a simple guest house, so it’s not difficult to find affordable housing. If the monthly rental of a villa can be close to two thousand dollars, a room in a small hotel or guest house can be rented for $10 per day (hereafter all prices are indicated in US dollars for your convenience). For that price you’ll get a clean room with shower, toilet, large bed, wardrobe and TV. Most often, such housing is located on the second line (in Mui Ne it’s about 150 meters from the sea).
How to eat not expensive and tasty food. Local restaurants and cafes offer Vietnamese, European and sometimes Russian cuisine.
You should try the traditional Vietnamese pho soup, for sure. The locals can eat this noodle soup at any time of the day.
Mui Ne is a paradise for seafood lovers. Shrimp and crabs, lobsters and scallops here are fresh, tasty and cheap (from $3 to $5 for a dish of scallops, about $30-40 for a large lobster).

Exotic fruits are sold at every step. Juicy mango coexist on the shelves with the amazing dragon fruit, delicious papaya and mangosteens, recognized leaders of palatability.
Speaking of alcohol, you can buy cheap local drinks. Various kinds of delicious beer are produced here, and the price starts at as much as half a US dollar. Try the local cane rum (from $3 per bottle). Another popular drink is Hanoi vodka. In bars and restaurants, the price of alcohol is higher than in stores, however, the cost of drinks is not too high and is quite affordable. For example, shots cost from $3, and long drinks – from$ 5 to $ 7 for a cocktail.
Many travel agencies in Mui Ne offer cheap excursions that will introduce you to the sights of this interesting and original country.
One of the most popular tours among the tourists coming to Mui Ne for vacations is a tour to Dalat, the Vietnamese city with a special atmosphere. Dalat was built by the French and is located in the mountains, so the climate here is cooler than on the coast.
Another popular route is one to the city of Nha Trang, with the visit to the amusement Park Vinpearl and a tour of the Nha Phu bay.

Large foreign tour operators can inflate the cost of excursions by 1.5-2 times, while the services of local agencies benefit in quality due to smaller groups and more comfortable minibuses, and are cheaper, as well. For example, our travel agency Dima-Tour, registered in Vietnam, organizes excursions from Mui Ne to Vietnam and Cambodia for many years keeping very good prices. All our guides speak English.
