Vung Tau Overview
Coastal city Vung Tau is located in South Vietnam to the Northeast of Mekong Delta. It is next to Dong Nai to the north, Ho Chi Minh to the west, and Binh Thuan to the east. It is a critical urban and economic center of the region.
The city looks remarkably civilized with broad boulevards. Oil is the key business here. Therefore, the horizon is, normally, dotted with a bunch of tankers. Besides, petro dollars dominate the city’s economy, which inflates prices significantly.
Not to mention, it is also a popular place for trips on weekends from Ho Chi Minh city. This tourist spot rocks on weekends when people descend in numbers, but it’s a bit silent during the week.
Vung Tau enjoys a favorable settlement on a peninsula with fresh sea air. Also, it is said that Vung Tau is a blend of man-made architectural works and natural communities.
We must say that although few people bother to visit this place, it is still an excellent spot to start/end a coastal road excursion to Mui Ne and others.
