Again trying to skip the hoards of crowds, I decided to skip Mui Ne and visit the neighbouring city of Binh Hung instead. Binh Hung and Mui Ne are actually both located within Phan Thiet and are only about 20km away from each other.
There are still a lot of local tourists that visit Binh Hung. So much so that on summer weekends be prepared for many guesthouses to be filled up.
There is a nice beach and park area in Binh Hung called Doi Duong. It use to only be a beach, but recently they have planted lots of trees in the area, making it a great spot for a picnic.
I did take a dip into the waters, but regretted it soon after I took a motorbike drive around the area. Just a couple minutes away from the beach front is a small fishing village. It’s a big contrast from the manicured beach area, where garbage and waste was littered everywhere. No doubt a lot of that waste would’ve made it into the waters I was swimming in…
