Dutch online travel agency has named the beach resort city of Mui Ne one of the six cheapest destinations in the world for an autumn holiday.

The other five destinations are Cartagene in Colombia, Valencia in Spain, Pigeon Forge in the U.S., and Blackpool in the U.K.

"A popular spot with both backpackers and those seeking a luxury vacation on a budget, it's also a highly recommended destination for kitesurfing," the agency wrote.

With ideal wind conditions between October and March and tropical weather all year round, Mui Ne is the place for "a sun-drenched fall adventure break."

Mui Ne, situated 12 km from Phan Thiet, the capital of Binh Thuan Province on the south-central coast, offers a hot air balloon ride over sand dunes.

With the cheaper costs in Vietnam, other affordable beach activities include kayaking, jet skiing and surfing, Booking said.

With a night’s stay costing VND220,000 (US$9), iHome Backpacker Resort is worth considering, it said.

The hostel is near the popular Ham Tien Beach and Rang Market.

The list is based on reviews of travelers booking rooms at more than 28 million accommodation establishments in 155 countries and territories on, with criteria including hotel room, flight and transportation prices and food.
