It was so good to see my sister after 6 months so after a few days exploring Saigon we headed north to Mui Ne. Our luxury resort lived up to our expectations. We were right on the sea front we had a wonderful view of the lighthouse.
I managed to convince my sister to head out on a bicycle, something she said she has not done for some 12 years.
After the madness of the traffic in the city of Saigon, Mui Ne had little traffic to contend with. We cycled by the sea and stopped to look at the dragon fruit growing. ... which I am reliably informed is the next super food to hit the UK. We also saw salt flats.
The highlight for me was visiting the Ta Cu Mountain. We decided on the quick route and ascended using the cable car. Once we had climbed the remaining steep stairs we came across Vietnam's largest reclining Buddha (Tuong Phat Nam). Although built in the 1972 it is a wonderful site to see and has magnificent views from the top of the mountain.
This is a place I will definitely return to ... next stop Laos.
