Day 2: Saigon Jeep Tours to Vung Tau, Mui Ne, Phan Thiet: Ho Tram Jeep Tour To Ke Ga-Mui Ne (B, L)
Check out in the noon, the adventure continues. Drive on the long and winding road, less traffic, one side is mountain and the other is blue sea, it becomes even more exciting when you are on a military Jeep. The most exciting about taking a Jeep is nothing between you and the nature, let the sea wind blows on your face, your hair. The experience is inspiring and perhaps will make you feel free.
Not too long since you depart, you will pass by the sleeping towns which have long, beautiful beach and emerald sea. This area is also hometown of Dragon Fruit ( which belong to cactus family), you will see many dragon fruit farms and if you get there in season, you can stop at any farm to try this amazing fruit.
On the way, you can make some photo stops or just take a closer look to anything that amazes such as small beach where you find a local seafood processing workshop. The fishermen dry out several kinds of fishes, shrimp from the big to super tiny ones. It is interesting to see and a great opportunity for photo shootings of people at work with the back ground of blue sea dotted with color-block fishing boats. Far on the beach, there is a group short temporary shelter for fishermen. They seem living in a not very impressive condition but one thing that we might be jealous with them: Sea view.
Not too far away, you can see Ke Ga Lighthouse built in 1899 near dangerous reefs, this structure stands just off the beach on a small rocky promontory, you even can reach the lighthouse by foot at low tide. Photo of local typical round bamboo boats with Lighthouse as back ground is the highlight here.
Continue driving on the most beautiful coastal part of the trip and get to Phan Thiet, one final stop that you should make is at PoshanuTower on the way to Mui Ne. This is a complex consisting of the ruins of 3 Cham towers dated back from the 9th century.
