For Vietnamese, the most popular vehicle is motorbike, however, if you are foreigner, consider before doing so. Current traffic law requires foreigner has to pass an exam for inside Vietnam driving if you have an ineternational driving license already. Also the road condition in Mui Ne is not so good and there are a lots of big vehicles like bus, van, truck, etc, moving around. So if you have all that, diring motorbike is a perfect choice for moving around in Mui Ne. It’s very flexible, economic, and comfortable as well.
