What To Expect

Vung Tau Beach
8:00 am, We will depart from Saigon to Vung Tau city.

10:30 am, Arriving in Vung Tau and enjoying free time at Thuy Van beach (Back beach) – one of the nicest beaches in Vietnam with the shore runs for almost 10km, full with fine sands and white waves.

Then, we have authentic Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant.

After lunch, we visit Jesus Christ Statue by walking up the 847 stairs and meeting the 32 meter-tall (105 feet) statue of Jesus Christ. Considered one of the tallest statues of Christ in Asia, its outstretched arms span a little over 18.4 meters. Originally started in 1972 but the construction was only completed in 1993. The adventurous are welcome to climb to the top of inside Christ' arms and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view of Vung Tau city.

The second destination is Thang Tam Temple (Whale Temple). The temple displays the bones which came to symbolize the protector deity of the coast. Now, each time a carcass of a whale washes ashore, the bones are ceremonially hauled to the mausoleum.

We also discovery the Vung Tau's nicest colonial era mansion - Bach Dinh. It was built as a retreat for French Governor of Indochina Paul Doumer at the beginning of the 20th century.

VERY PICTURESQUE
Alexnkristy, 15-02-2020
We took the long drive out and back to Vung Tau with our guide HUNTER and our driver. HUNTER was very informative on the daily lives of the people not only in Vung Tau but about all the things we spotted on the way between Ho Chi Minh and Vung Tau. Once there we got to enjoy a nice relaxing swim a quiet beach for a few hours, complete with beach showers to wash the salt off and beers to relax with. Not quite the standard of our beaches in Australia, but that is an unfare comparison. Gentle waves, clean sand, clean water and peace and quiet.

We have been lucky on our trip that there are less tourists due to the Corona virus outbreak.

After the beach our guide joined us on the long hike of 800+ stairs up to the Christ statue. It might help if you are a little fitter than us to do this, but our guide was happy to go at our pace. You will definitely get a sweat up that’s for sure. Once up there you will get a nice view through the trees too the city below and out to the ocean. Not quite Christo in Rio but quite a sight nonetheless.

Upon finishing our gruelling climb lol, we went to a local seafood restaurant for a 5 dish feast. It’s fair to say that not only did we enjoy the food but a lot of others do also, as it was absolute packed with families and couples.Given tourists numbers are down I can only Imagine these to be locals.

After this we finished the tour with a visit to the whale temple including a short history lesson, plus a cruise through town to see a few more local sights.
The driver was more than willing to stop along the way to allow us to take some photographs of the town and things we found interesting.

The whole journey was very pleasant in our icy cold air conditioned vehicle. I would highly recommend this for a nice relaxing day away from the hussle and bussle of Ho Chi Minh.
If your lucky enough to have hunter as your guide all the better.

Our only issue is the long drive to and from but these things can not be helped.
