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.

Full Moon Party on Cat Ba

It’s not the first full moon party in Vietnam — there have been a number of these beasts hitting the southern hemisphere of this country over the past few years. But it’s certainly the first full moon party in the North.

Lovebirds of Vietnam, here’s some good news — the island of Phu Quoc has recently been named one of Rough Guide’s 20 Best Honeymoon Destinations. It’s quite an honour for an island once better known for its fish sauce and indigenous hunting dogs.
