The beautiful road starts in the popular beach town Mui Ne and runs northwest to Phan Ri. With cinematic views, this is one of the favorite road trip options for motorbike travelers. You can bring a motorbike from home, but there are many bikes for rent in Mui Ne.

The usually dry land is greener during this time of year, after weeks of heavy rains.

You can drive back to spend the night in Mui Ne and enjoy delicious supper with local speciality 'banh can'. The tiny pancakes are cooked by pouring a mixture of rice powder and egg into round clay molds and served with a special sauce made from fish sauce, fried shallots and boiled egg.
