In Vietnam, there is a unique spot on the mainland where you can stand and see both the sunrise and sunset over the sea.

That location is Mui Ca Mau (Ca Mau Cape), which stands as the southernmost point on the mainland of the country.

It is situated in Dat Mui Commune, Ngoc Hien District, Ca Mau Province.
