Following the pick up at Vung Tau (or Phu My Port), we start our city tour to explore this small exciting sea-town. We will first visit the spectacular Jesus Statue for a morning panoramic view of the city and shoreline. Built in 1972, this statue is standing in Nui Nho (Nho Mount) with 32 meters high and 18.3 meters long arms. Climbing nearly 900 steps to the top; we will enjoy a breathtaking view of Vung Tau City.
When you go down, get yourself relaxed by a cool drink offered by our tour guide before transferring to our next visit – Niet Ban Tinh Xa (Nirvana Pagoda). Nirvana Pagoda or Lying Buddha Pagoda (12m Buddha made of marble) was built in 1969 and is one of the biggest pagodas in the city. When you get here, you can try to drum the giant bronze bell in the upper level for fortune, good health, and success. The next place in our tour itinerary is the White Palace which was used as the summer palace of the last Emperor of Vietnam, Bao Dai.
