Notes From Another City: Vung Tau

Front Beach Sand, sea, coffee and nightlife.  Front Beach is the place to go in  Vung Tau for some action…

Expats in Vietnam don’t rank Vung Tau highly on their lists of ‘must-visit’ places. They’re inclined to view it as a slightly run-down beach resort that may appeal to local weekenders from Ho Chi Minh City, but with nothing of note to attract a foreigner. At the risk of sounding like a know-it-all, they’re mistaken about that. Vung Tau is a pretty cool place.
