Adventurous travelers will love the opportunity to visit the beautiful Mui Ne sand dunes. You can slide down them or ride a quad bike on the dunes if you wish. Choose to go at sunrise or sunset for the best views. You also have time to check out a traditional fishing village and hike to the refreshing Fairy Stream, where you might see local birds and wildlife.

A skeleton of a whale is the museum. Plus a kind of a graveyard outside. Perhaps this is a little too little even for the most enthusiastic tourists. Well, we were the only visitors.

Or guide informed us that when whales die after beaching the locals chop them up and bury them. After 3 years they are dug up and the bones brought to this temple. The believe that the whales save people from death at sea etc. If you have time visit if not you won't be missing much!

Never in my widest dreams did i imagine that i would be looking at skeletons of huge Fin Whales in a Temple in Vietnam. But that is the essence of the "Fisherman's" temple and of their beliefs. Totally bizarre, slightly naive and equally fascinating - this sacred place dates from 1760's ( and really looks like every year of it). With many inexplicable articles (to us) it is quite an amazing temple, tucked away in a back street. There were a number of local people at prayer and this is not an amusing relic to them, but to our, possibly uninformed eyes, it remains dark, mysterious, bewildering and quite surreal. I would have liked to know more about the place and particularly, how it survived the hard communist years after the fall of the Saigon government.

This is a sacred temple for respecting Whales from local fishermen. Plan your visit here to see the old house, nicely designed.
