Today the city sustains its prestige and offers visitors even more besides beach tourism, adding fantastic services in ecotourism, spiritual tourism, and leisure tourism.

Vung Tau is just one and a half hours from Ho Chi Minh City by road or hydrofoil. The city is a coastal hotspot welcoming large numbers of visitors in groups of family or friends and is also a magnet for luxury tourism investors.

Nature has provided the beach city with a host of “treasures”, such as Chua Mount, Dinh Mount, Ho Coc Beach, Ho Tram, and the hot springs in Binh Chau.

Travelling along the road linking Vung Tau and the outskirts of nearby Xuyen Moc district, visitors may have a feeling of being lost in a fairy land thanks to the poetic scenery, with one side of the road boasting greenery at the foot of mountains and the other the enormous blue sea. Luxurious resorts also present themselves, in harmony with nature. The tourist sites of East Sea (Bien Dong), Vung Tau Intourco, Hai Duong Intourco, and Gio Bien (Vung Tau city) take turns introducing themselves. Others, including Huong Phong - Ho Coc Beach Resort, Camelina Beach Resort, Vietsovpetro Resort, The Grand Ho Tram Strip, and Ho Tram Osaka (Xuyen Moc district), Oceanami Villas & Beach Club, Tropicana Beach Resort, and Thuy Duong (Dat Do district), and Lan Rung Phuoc Hai Resort & Spa, Long Hai Beach Resort, Anoasis Resort Long Hai, An Hoa Residence, Palace Resort Long Hai Beach, 298 Rehabilitation Centre, and Long Hai Channel Resort (Long Dien district) also have their chance at introduction.

Vung Tau’s resorts and hotels record high occupancy rates on weekends and national holidays. High-standard leisure tourism accounts for most of the local tourism market, thanks to luxurious services such as pools, restaurants, and massage and spa services. Gala and concert nights add even more fun. Visitors in families or groups of friends see Vung Tau’s hospitality facilities as the best choice and return in greater numbers.

Vung Tau welcomed 1.78 million visitors in the first half of this year, 228,000 of which were foreigners. Tourism revenue stood at VND2.8 trillion ($120 million), which partly proves the success of the local tourism sector.

Visitors are all pleased with the services as well as the peace and relaxation found in the beautiful natural surroundings. Many visitors therefore award the city the title of “Vung Tau, not only for beaches” - which means it offers so many choices for visitors. Tourism facilities are adding more high-standard tourism products found only in the city, including river tours, an ancient weapons museum, and dog racing. These are all believed to boost local tourism to the next level.

Local tourism authorities are working hard to sustain its clean tourism reputation by ensuring stable price for local services and keeping visitors safe from beggars and illegal vendors. Officials also publicize their phone numbers for visitors to report any nuisances they may encounter during their stay in Vung Tau. Upgraded services and the efforts of local authorities have engendered more trust among visitors and facilitated sustainable tourism growth.
