Vung Tau


Vung Tau is 125 km east of Ho Chi Minh City. This scenic bay, outlined by a small curved peninsula, offers two beaches: Front Beach (Bai Truoc) is located near the center of town; while Back Beach (Bai Sau) is found just outside the city. Wide sandy beaches offer expansive views of the sea. Travelers can enjoy the destination`s year around sunshine and enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, golf or follow mountain trails on foot or bicycle.

There are also a number of interesting religious sites around town, including several pagodas and huge standing statue of Jesus blessing the East Sea. A short hike to the base of this statue offers outstanding views of the coastline.
