Vung Tau Map

"Behind our hotel is a statue of Christ, larger than that of Rio de Janeiro. Maybe worth climbing that mountain! It was difficult to find the way the first time. Actually we had walked right but not far enough to know and see that the entrance was just behind the corner. So we did a nice detour tour.
  And it is difficult to ask the way of the Vietnamese. They cannot speak English. You just open your mouth when they wave their hand in the air waving that they don't understand us.
  Finally we find the statue of Christ. It doesn't seem that big. How big would it be in Rio de Janeiro?"


Vung Tau at daylight

          Vung Tau - has an estimated 230,000 inhabitants. Vung Tau is Vietnam's petroleum mining center and is also famous for the beaches frequented by the people of Ho Chi Minh City. Vung Tau is located on a peninsula about 95 kilometers from busy Ho Chi Minh.
During the 14th and 15th centuries, the cape where Vung Tau would later emerge formed a swamp where European trading ships regularly came. The name Vung Tau ("anchorage") is derived from this. Portuguese seafarers often passed Vung Tau and named her after (in Catholicism) Saint James the Greater.
James the Greater was an apostle of Jesus Christ, one of "the twelve." He is called the Superior to distinguish him from his namesake called James the Lesser (the "brother of Jesus" and traditionally the author of the Epistle of James).

Some beautiful beaches near Vung Tau:

  • Front Beach This is halfway between Big Mountain and Little Nountain. Restaurants, kiosks and hotels are close to the beach. Front Beach is connected through with the town by a small park called Front Beach Park. Since this beach is located near the tourist center of the city, most people will come here to visit the park and watch the sunset.

  • Back Beach is actually the only beach, which is suitable for the tourists. It is three kilometers long and stretches from the Little Mountain to the Paradise Park.

  • Pineapple Beach is a small beach along Halong street, close to the Little Mountain.
