Aptly named as the Fairy Stream, visiting this whimsically flowing waterway making its way through the white and red sand dunes of Mui Ne is indeed a magical experience. One may need to seek accommodation in a comfortable resort in Mui Ne to fully capture the enchantment of this experience and Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa is perhaps the ideal choice of a Vietnam hotel that would make this trip all the more special. It is quite pleasant to walk down the stream ankle deep in the delightfully tepid water, the soles of your feet gladly embracing the softest of the sands in the bottom of the stream. Surrounded by a lush verdure with the sunlight streaming through the foliage, it’s quite easy to see why it is called the Fairy Stream. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the stream will open up to blue skies and the colour of the stream would change from reddish hues to orange, depending on the colour of the sandy banks lining the stream. As you go on, remember to take some snaps of the curiously patterned limestone banks that you encounter along the way which seem to have a mind of their own.
