Took our first sleeper bus which was definitely an interesting experience! Definitely something different for both of us! We arrived in the coastal resort town of Mui Ne where we stayed at an awesome resort where we relaxed in the pool and beach. We visited the fairy stream, fishermans, saw amazing white sand dunes and saw the sunset at the red dunes. So amazing!!
