Fairy Stream – Travels in Vietnam

At the north end of Mui Ne, a beach town in Vietnam, is a little creek – the Fairy Stream – that winds its way through the sand dunes that surround the town. The stream’s bottom is super soft sand and mud that’s fun to walk through in bare feet. We walked about a mile up the creek, played in the mud, and then returned to end of the stream – where it flows into the ocean.

    We are in Mui Ne now with our 3 kids, did you hire a tour for Fairy Stream? Or do it on your own?

      We did it at the very end of an Easy Riders tour around central Vietnam. So yes, we were technically on a tour but they didn’t do anything for us other than drop us at the start of the stream and point us east. Easy to do by yourself – just find the stream and start walking.

    Nice post on what looks like a great place for kids. I’m wondering how tough it was to get those mud stains out of the white pants.

    Thanks Kerry and Myscha. It was fun. The mud and the warm water and the hot sun made it feel strangely like being in an outdoor spa.

    What a blast! We haven’t done Vietnam yet, but really want to get there and spend some time. Looks like your kiddos really enjoyed themselves.
