Bau Sen – An oasis in Mui Ne’s sand dunes
In Phan Thiet City, Binh Thuan Province, which is dubbed the "capital of resorts", tourists should not miss a chance to visit the breathtaking sand dunes and Bau Sen (lotus lagoon).
Located in Hong Lam Village, Hoa Thang Commune, Bac Binh District, around 40 kilometers from Phan Thiet, Bau Sen is a natural fresh water lagoon which is divided into two smaller lagoons by a sand dune.
The lagoon is a primary source of fresh water for Cham ethic people in the locality.
According to local people, Bau Sen is up to 19 meters deep and home to a variety of fauna and flora.
In the lagoon, lotus is almost in bloom all year round and local people can collect tons of seeds a year.
It is a nice surprise to find a vast lagoon with cool water in an area where there is more sunlight than rain.
In addition to the lotus lagoon, tourists should visit sand dunes at another famous tourist attraction in Phan Thiet.
The ideal time for playing on sand dunes is before sunrise because it is cool then.
On the sand dunes, tourists should not miss several interesting activities including taking a sand dune slide and driving an all-terrain vehicle.
