1/3.- Welcome to Vung Tau virtual tour!
Welcome to the Vung Tau online presentation. On the following pages I will show you what this resort town 80 miles (125 km) from Saigon has to offer.
Although I do not consider this town of much interest to foreign visitors, there are some sites you may visit. Especially famous are its temples and pagodas.
Vung Tau used to be the beach destination for the rich and famous in Saigon. Its beautiful beaches and its proximity to the South capital of Vietnam sure helped. Nowadays you can reach Vung Tau from Saigon in an hour with a fast ferry. You can also get here by taxi and/or bus. The ride will take two and a half hours by road.
If you are going to stay in Saigon for a long time and want to escape of this hectic city for a couple of days, Vung Tau is a good destination. If you want to relax on the beach for more than a weekend, I recommend going somewhere else in Vietnam (Phu Quoc, Muine, Nha Trang, ...). Let's see what Vung Tau has to offer.
