hkskyline's 2008 - HO CHI MINH CITY #2 (Vung Tau Day Trip)

Vung Tau is a seaside resort about 3 hours from Ho Chi Minh City. Yes ... 3 hours ... but in terms of distance, I don't think it's anywhere near 300km (more like 1/3 that). The trip was long and painful since there is no highway linking the two.

1. The key attraction is the huge statue of Jesus that sits atop of a hill overlooking the ocean. It was quite a climb to get up there, but the views were spectacular.









5. You could even go up to the statue's shoulder to take a peek out.





















15. Notice the long beach and coastline.

















23. When Vietnam wasn't doing so well before the economic reforms, boat people would take off from this area to head to a better future, or a watery death.



















32. Moving away from the sea, here are some neat buildings and cityscapes.







35. Notice the tall and skinny buildings. They're quite popular in HCMC as well.









39. Notice how the beach is full of life.
