VUNG TAU This has always been a very poularresort town and a very easy place to visit to get away from the pressures of Saigon City.When I visitited on a weekday I beleive it is a very different place on the weekend when the city crowds pour in..Having not visited Vung Tau while on my last visit to HCMC ,,and will call it Saigon as the locals do..I decided to have a day trip over and look around to hopefully get some clean ocean air...The hydrofoil service that leaves from Saigon harbour is frequent and fast..does not cost much and really is a great break from all the bad air and noise of a million motorcycles..
I found Vung Tau to be really pleasant as I just walked around the parks ,which are many and also through the back streets where locals laid in their hammocks ..I guess having a siesta to avoid the midday heat, so interesting looking at the locals everyday life and found it to be really quiet and pleasant.. I must say it was very quiet and enjoyable to walk by the bay and watch the fisherman bringing in and unloading their days catch to be sold at the market
I found it easy talking with the fishermen unloading their catch and they were kind enough to let me take some photos..Their catch was many and the fish were very large.I noticed a lot of Ex Pats with bars and small buisinesses here that have stayed on or returned after the war..I stopped in one such Aussie bar for a really good burger and chips and they were advertising a weekly free barbeque....
I seemed to walk so far here just walking about in Vung Tau but all around the bay is pleasant not only the sea air but to look at the veriety of different fishing vessels that are used here..
- Pros:A GREAT DAY OUT OF SAIGON..FRESH SEA AIR..
- Cons:A VERY LONG WALK IN THE EXTREME SUMMER HEAT...
VUNG TAU ..Walking around the bay I found really relaxing . The walkway by the bay has stairways in different places... more travel advice
