Indeed if you have nothing else to do - do this. Nothing special but for locals maybe special.. and sunsets - there are many more nice places to see the dun going down

It's just red sand, not even much. We didn't even spend 10 Minutes. There is nothing to see here. The only reason to go to mui ne is to stay in a decent resort. Don't come here because of some sand.

The second desert that we visited after white sand dunes. Not as wide as white sand dunes, but the sand here has unique color. It was not too comfortable for capturing photo if the many tourists came at the same time. Also many local people...More

We went there in the morning while the sun is not so high up but can get quite hot as it progresses to noon. Enjoyed ourselves sliding down the sand dunes but do keep your mouth shut as you don't want to be eating sand....More

We stayed at a hotel directly across from the Red Sand Dunes, so very easy to access. They're closer to town than the White Sand Dunes and have nice views of the sea. We went early in the morning, but it was still incredibly hot....More

Beautiful too but cant fight with the white sand dunes which is much larger. Be fit enough to walk up the dunes tho. Its a challenge.

We booked a private tour. Because you don't have to care about others. ;-)

No you can easily do it on your own. Renting a motorbike or one of the jeep tours is probably a the best and most affordable way. I think our tour started at 4.30 or 5.00 am.

The dunes are not that close together but not a great distance either. I saw a lot of hotels along the way coming from Phan Theit to the red dunes.
