Vietnam is located in South East Asia on the same peninsula as Thailand with mainland China to the north,. It is one of the fastest developing countries in SE Asia with many new hotels, restaurants and nightclubs in the main cities, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh. Outside of the cities, the landscape is characterised by the interior mountains, jungles and Mekong Delta – home to the paddy fields with 2,000 miles with beautiful white sand beaches and beach resorts.

Sailing Spot and Conditions
Mui Ne Bay or, more accurately, the Bay of Phan Thiet is awide bay with land peninsular extending to the north. Here local fisherman still operate. At the southern end of the bay is where the hotels and centres are based and the main sailing area. The wind conditions are some of the most reliable for a long haul destinations over 220 days of 12 knots plus and if you like very strong and challenging conditions it is perfect as the wind can gust up to 40 knots when the wind comes in from the north east. The main season is November to April which sees the strong wind. Shorebreak can also be more than moderate. The wind builds through the morning so first thing is better to get for those wishing to take it a bit easier. Waves are best September to December. Wind is mainly side / side onshore. This resort is really for those who want to improve or enjoy their wave sailing. It is best suited to advanced windsurfers and kitesurfers. More>

Culture and Activities
Mui Ne, located on the Bay of Phan Thiet, 220km east of Sai Gon, in the south east of Vietnam. This former fishing village has grown over the last 10 years into the foremost windsurfing and kitesurfing destination in Vietnam. However it still maintains a laid back, surf vibe without the party crowds and pushy street vendors found in other more developed resorts. Set along a 10km stretch of the coastal road, the main hotels are situated directly on the beach with restaurants, bars and souvenir shops mostly on the other side of the road. Good quality hotels sit next to more budget accommodation. The whole resort is characterised by the beautiful white sand beaches lined with palm trees swaying in the breeze and huge sand dunes stretching for miles. Now billed as the windsurfing and kitesurfing capital of Vietnam, there are excellent sailing conditions that attract an increasing number of visitors from all around the world. 2011 saw the PWA tour arrive in Mui Ne for the first time in March on the first leg of the Series.

We recommend 3 fantastic extension tours and can arrange tours from 2 days to 2 weeks to Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay the Mekong Delta 
and more. Call for details.
