Hanoi (VNA) – The south central province of Binh Thuan is endowed with sand hills and dunes dubbed as "little deserts," whose colours change depending on the angle of the sun or cloud cover.
The sand dunes have attracted crowds of international tourist s, painters, poets and photographers who come to find inspirations for their works.
Many people say that if immense sand dunes are raw materials, wind is the artist who creates magical pictures of 'sandy seas', with ripples, soft curves, and gentle valleys.
For those who love to travel, especially discovery tourism, the immensity of the ' sandy sea ' offers an unexpected charm.
Ninh Thuan is well-known for sand dunes and hills suitable for those who love outdoor activities such as hill climbing, sand-boarding, camel riding, or jeep tours.

Tiptoeing along White Sand Dunes is one of should-not-miss things to do in Mui Ne, apart from enjoying great time in cool seawater. Such sand dunes make Mui Ne more attractive and a unique spot in Binh Thuan as well as in a tropical country like Vietnam.
