BINH THUAN — Mui Ne beach in the central province of Binh Thuan has been rated by travel guide Canadian Travellers as one of the 11 most beautiful beaches in Southeast Asia.
It ranks second behind only Koh Lipe, a Thai island in the southern Andaman Sea.
The magazine says: “Mui Ne… has slowly been becoming the top getaway in Viet Nam, but while a few boutique resorts have popped up along the white sand beaches, the area has yet to go tourist crazy.
“The beach is right by the town of Phan Thiet, a humble little fishing port. If you like fresh seafood, wander into town to sample the local catch of the day.”
From third in the list are Tanjung Rhu (Malaysia), Menjangan Island (Indonesia), Ko Yung (Thailand), Koh Rong (Cambodia), Coron (Philippines), Kuta (Indonesia), Camiguin (Philippines), Gili Trawangan (Indonesia), and Ko Phangan (Thailand).
