kiteboarding in mui ne
Coming to all corners of Vietnam, tourists can see peasant women in their conical hats working in green rice paddies and children playing with their buffalos on the roads. Only a half hours hydrofoil trip from the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Vung Tau is where the Vietnamese flock each weekend to get some respite from another busy week ahead. Vietnam & Cambodia: Visit must see destinations from Halong Bay to Hoi An, Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City and Angkor Wat temples.
You'll find everything there: waves, flat water, lagoon, clear water, white sandy beaches - very picturesque! Even as I thought about my dirty rags it was already going through my mind to take a dip in the inviting waters. Even when I stopped by at a campsite some kilometers further along to get a soft drink from a vending machine, I could see the area was pretty well chocker blocked with tents and people, mostly young.
Hanoi is the second-largest city in Vietnam and offers a spectacular fusion of eastern and western cultures, due to the French and Chinese influences from past occupations. Ho Chi Minh City also offers several water parks and other locations for enjoying nature.
The season for kitesurfing in Mui Ne is just starting now. Unlike the children I taught at school in Tokyo, or people at large, those whom I stopped to chat with on the road were keen to ask me questions. North of the town, there are two beaches, Doc Let and Jungle Beach.
This is a great option for those who wish to combine interesting touring with time spent relaxing on the beach. And the times on the road when I would prepare my mind for one of the many long tunnels I had to face. Mui Ne has the best conditions in all of Asia for water sports because it has Asia's strongest and most consistent cross-onshore winds and the lowest rainfall in Vietnam.
