If Mui ne is now only 3 hours from sai Gon they must have improved the road a lot. Was supposed to be 5 hours (my friend taht lived in Sai Gon had been a few times). We met some Russians who were kitesurfing instructors heading to Mui Ne.
halong the most overrated tourist crap i ever wasted money on... wait for boat.. boat goes same place as everyone else, get ogg boat, tour somewhere, wait wait... dont buy beeer from boat vendors... rules and go there go there... was crap....
FF: Absolutely agree. Phu Quoc is killer; I got a handjob on the beach from a fisherman's wife/massage lady even for just 100000 Dong (like $6). Made quite a mess of my shorts so had to wait until it dried up before geting up. Looked like I pissed myself LOL
I agree with your Ha Noi assessment.. however Saigon much closer to good benches , think Miu Ne and Phan Thiet not Vung Tau. And easier to get ot Phu Quoc too. Too many gap year wanna be hippies in Sai gon.
