Vung Tau

Vung Tau

While in the south, I took a speed boat to Vung Tau on a hot day and I can't believe that it was already over 10 years since I was there the first time. Everything has changed but I think this small beach town is still missing something. The architecture is very mixed with so many new houses with strange designs and the people are a bit pushy. I walked along the street and there were so many people coming and asking me to do things. I understand that's business but I think they need to leave people alone when they say no. The food in Vung Tau was also not really good except for the seafood.

Vung Tau

Vung Tau is a very clean city with lots of greenery along the center of the streets. It reminded me a little of Singapore for some reason.

Vung Tau

I don't know what it is but there is something missing in Vung Tau.

Tu--Beautiful photos:) I have wonderful memories of Vung Tau from about 15 years ago. I would love to return and see the changes you talk about! By the way, I am going to India in August, so I might visit Hanoi for 2 days...will you be there? Maybe we can have a drink.

Mr. Tu, thank you again for beautiful pictures, which are inspiring me to take the trip finally from HCMC down to Vung Tao. Judging from that strange hotel in your first picture, you are right about mixed architecture. I am looking forward to seeing the changes from when I was last there 33 years ago -- it needed much change.

u reminded me of when i went over there with motorbike. I nearly died. Thank my friend ask us to stop as he wanted to snap some pic. My bike tyre explode just as I was abt to move into 2nd gear frm there. Phew ! swear to god, we really slow down after that.

Vung Tau is a tourist place. Expensive unless u know where to eat. Some lady came with a pail of large prawn and crab. The crab is ar VND10,000 and prawn at VND50,000 per kg. Dirt cheap. A kg prawn and a crab with few beers was our lunch at that day , each of us. Wonderful! - sigh...now i miss VN

I have never been in Vung Tau.
Beautiful pictures. Must be a good place to eat sea-foods.

I can only remember Do-son ... near Haiphong. I always loved summer time at that place.

such an active social life you lead, vietnamese god. seems you are out and about non-stop. good thing for us readers :)

Vung Tao is like the beachfront communities in the U.S. All the small privately owned motels are being razed to build huge condos that completely block the view of the beach. And only the rich can afford to buy them.

that's my hometown...where I was born and where I grew up.

I get emotional whenever I see people talk about Vung Tau.:)

Hi Just wanted to say i worked in Vietnam from 2002 to 2005 and lived in Vung Tau for 2 years, i had the most wonderful time there and saw many changes to the place. Since leaving there 8 months ago i have been back twice to see old friends, and the changes just keep going on. The air is clean and cool and the choice of eating is fantastic. I shall continue to visit the place for the rest of my life, i just love the atmosphere, the pace and the food, oh the ladies are not too bad either.

Godknows said...

phumybar, msnguyen Ving Tau is a nice place and good seafood. Thanks for your comments

Where would I look to find photography/art of Vung Tau? I have a former student that was born there. He will be graduating from Westmoore High School in Moore, OK and I thought a memory from his home town would be a great present.

Thank you.
