Vung Tau

Wedged between two mountains, this former French colonial city was the seaside resort which American soldiers used to rest and relax during the Vietnam War. The beaches along its long coastline are still the ideal place for recharging your batteries.

The perfect place for an energy boost

Visiting the 32-metre tall Christ the Redeemer statue is a good way to get a good first look at this picturesque fishing city in southern Vietnam. Most people who visit Vung Tau are attracted by the fine white sand of the beaches lined with palm trees. Vung Tau Beach is the most famous, but if you’re looking for good views, don’t forget to visit Front Beach. Watching the fishermen at work in their boats and tasting freshly caught fish and shellfish are experiences you must not miss in Vung Tau. Ready to enjoy it?
