Vung Tau

Popular Weekend Beach Escape Destination

Explore Our
Vung Tau Tour

Vung Tau, located about 120km to the southeast of Ho Chi Minh City, was known as Cap Saint-Jacques under French occupation. Among Vietnamese and expatriates, it is a popular beach destination for weekend trips. Travelers can reach Vung Tau by speedboat, car or helicopter from Ho Chi Minh City. Vung Tau is a busy coastal city with a few beaches, an attractive summer palace, a couple of interesting temples, a few other attractions and not much else, so it offers enough to do but nevertheless offers a low-key escape. Luxury properties, casinos, and luxury golf courses are opening up attracting long-stay, high-end holidaymakers to both the Ho Tram area and Vung Tau.
