About the Creator of MuiNeBeach.net
This website is the sole creation of Adam Bray, an American writer who first settled in Mui Ne in 2003. He created this site out of the appreciation for his new adopted home town of Phan Thiet and his friends who live there. It is his hope that through this site he can share the great depth of history, culture and natural beauty that Binh Thuan Province has to offer. Its people, history, culture, environment and natural resources should be treasured.
Adam speaks both Vietnamese and Cham fluently. He is one of only a small group of people who is literate in Cham Script. He is also an expert on tourism in Binh Thuan Province and throughout the country. Adam has assisted as a location scout, production assistant and marketing consultant for filming in Vietnam.
Adam has been featured in or written for a variety of Vietnam publications, including AsiaLife, Vietnam Pathfinder, The Word, Giai Dieu Xanh, Binh Thuan Today, Thanh Nien and eChip. He has written for several airlines magazines, including Qatar and Korean Airlines. Adam also has published award-winning articles through Transitions Abroad Magazine.
