"We had a look at the lighthouse, the Christ Statue, the beaches and just enjoyed it! After our tour we lay down on the beach, this was great. In the evening we went out to eat at a super nice restaurant on the water with all Vietnamese. It was so busy and it was just Tuesday! Delicious fish eaten really delicious! After dinner we went back to the hotel."

The first known name of the city of Vung Tau - is "Chan Bo", in the 13th century the Europeans called it "the Cape of Saint-Jacques", now it is known as Vung Tau. There are about 500,000 people, the city is cozy.
In Vung Tau there is an amusement park “Ho may”. There are simple but cute rides, swimming pool with slides, rollercoaster, cinema, whirligig, swing ship, ostriches, horses, playgrounds and carousels etc. The park is located on Mount Nuilon. The mountain peak is connected to Vung Tau's Front Beach 500m cable car line.
The cost of a seat in the cable car depends on the age and height of the passengers. Small children travel for free. Adults have to pay twice as much. The price includes cable car delivery to the park and visits to all attractions. Moreover, you only have to pay for food in cafes, drinks, souvenirs and feeding Arapaima fish.
Tickets are 30% cheaper on public holidays. The locals like to take advantage of discounts. Before entering the cable car, you will receive a map of the park.

The swimming pool

There is always a line in the park for the Alpine Coater ride, similar to a roller coaster. This goes down 2 times steeply on a winding track. There is a point on the track where everyone is photographed, this photo can be purchased for 10,000 dongs afterwards.
For animal lovers can also indulge. You can watch ostriches and horses, there are sheep and goats, peacocks and porcupines. There are many monkeys in the park, there are different species and wild boars. On the grounds are cages with chickens, pheasants, eagles, a pavilion with deer.
