I'm planning a quite likely trip to Vietnam the first two weeks of November. What we've in mind is more or less 1 week discovering the country (well, part of it), and a week of relaxing beach holidays. I considered Phu Quoc, but if I could avoid having to take another flight I'd be happy (even if it's not much longer than a taxi from HCM to Mui Ne). It seems that as the beaches wouldn't be great in the north, and bad weather in the central part, Mui Ne might be a good option.
I've a few questions about it however:
- Can you please confirm that we should have mostly good weather there in early november? I know it's a bit random and can change, but a tendency.
- More important, I read it's very windy. We won't do thinks like kite surf etc, but would rather enjoy some restful days on the beach. Bad idea there? Or are there part of the Mui Ne area which are more protected from the winds?
- In that area, an hotel I liked is the Princess D'Am Nam, in Ke Ga Bay. However, it looks a bit far from everything, do you know if we could still (and for reasonable taxi fares) go eat/have drinks in local restaurants or bars? I'd rather have other options than only the hotel.
Thanks in advance!
