Vung Tau City


To the South of Ho Chi Minh City, we have the coastal city of Vung Tau. It is the closest beach to the former City of Saigon, just 1 hour by ferry from Ho Chi Minh City. Enjoy beautiful beaches of white sand, crystal clear waters, seafood and best of all, very few people in Vung Tau.

Vung Tau is one of the tourist centers of Vietnam, it comes to beaches and coasts and about £ 10, we will have a ticket in ferry's return. The name of the city, Vung Tau, is quite curious. Vung means pond and Tau means barca... which each draw their conclusions.

Vung Tau beach

The Vietnamese beauty ideal is white skin, so, the Vietnamese try to avoid as far as possible in the sun. This means that the beaches of Vung Tau (and any beach in Vietnam) are almost at our disposal. Nothing up early to get a seat, nothing so desperately seek where to put the umbrella.

Statue of Christ the Redeemer

With permission of the Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, in Vung Tau have a small statue of Jesus with outstretched arms. Its size and quality of your size does not measure up to his Brazilian counterpart, but it is surprising to find a Christian sculpture of this size in a predominantly Buddhist country.
