From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through https://www.workaway.info/, a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place they travel. I'm thinking to try this some time.
Once in the big city, my first priority was to get to Metiseko store to pick up my dress that I bought from Hoi An. Afterwards I wandered a bit in the area and saw some iconic sights of the city.
