Vung Tau Day Trip

by Dwight Z.

Vung Tau preserves the feel of a harmonious community of religions, mountains, beaches and architecture, both old and new. It is now a favorite weekend beach escape destination for family vacations from Ho Chi Minh City. Vung Tau was known as Cap Saint-Jacques under French occupation and is just 125 km southeast of Saigon. Once, this seaside resort was a popular beach destination for French and American servicemen, thanks to its sandy beaches and transparent warm blue water all the year round.
