2. Best time to visit Mui Ne Fishing Village

Early morning and late afternoon are good times to visit. 

2.1. In the early morning: Admire Sunrise and Join locals’ life

Once the sun comes out, you can come to the fishing harbor to admire the sunrise and see how fishermen start their daily work – putting the boats out for a new fishing net and taking turns to sail back to the shore. If fishermen return with a huge catch of fish, brilliant smiles brighten their faces as it guarantees their daily earnings. 

Well–built men quickly jump out of the boats to drag the net and pour all the marine creatures inside onto a canvas on the sand. Women then classify them into different types based on their species, and size and sell them to locals or tourists. Some are carefully chosen by nearby restaurants to be their fresh ingredients. 


Also, it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you to talk with local people and listen to their life stories along the coast. People are energetic, friendly and eager to exchange interesting things with others. 

2.2. In the late afternoon and at night: Immersed in a romantic setting
