Overview

Explore the captivating landscapes and vibrant culture of Southern Vietnam on a journey to Vung Tau. The city's name, which means 'anchorage', harks back to its history as a swamp that attracted European trading ships in centuries past.

Situated 125 kilometers southeast of bustling Ho Chi Minh City, Vung Tau boasts stunning statues, temples, gardens, and picturesque bay views. Formerly known as Cap Saint-Jacques during the French colonial era, this coastal gem was a beloved beach retreat for French and American servicemen. With its pristine sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters year-round, Vung Tau offers a tranquil escape for those seeking respite from the stresses of daily life.

Itinerary

Begin your day trip to Vung Tau by departing from your hotel. The first stop on your itinerary will be a visit to a communal temple that dates back to 1820. This temple holds significance as the place of worship for mandarins who played a key role in reclaiming and developing the land. One of the highlights of this visit is the whale skeleton, revered by locals as the "Lord" fish.

Next, head to the impressive White Palace, once the residence of an emperor. Then, journey to the "morning star" location, where you can observe locals drying fish freshly caught from the sea. A short drive away lies a traditional fishing port, where you can witness the bustling activities of trade and product exchange following the arrival of fishing boats.

Enjoy an authentic Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant before continuing your exploration. Ascend the 847 stairs to reach the towering Jesus Christ Statue, standing at 32 meters tall and offering a panoramic view of Vung Tau from its elevated position. Venture inside Christ's arms for a breathtaking vista of the city.

Discover the French-built Lighthouse, situated at a peak approximately 170 meters above sea level, providing a captivating 360-degree view of Vung Tau. Conclude your day with leisure time at Thuy Van beach (Back beach), renowned for its pristine shoreline stretching nearly 10km with gentle white waves.

As the afternoon draws to a close, return to Ho Chi Minh City and be dropped off at your hotel, marking the end of your enriching journey through Vung Tau.
