For a day trip to get away from the crowded H Chi Minh city, the vung tao of back beach is a great place to go. The water is warm and very flat sandy beach to swim in it. It's more a local beach, so...More

Given I have seen gardeners everywhere in Vietnam keeping the verges and parks clean it might be an idea to adopt it on the beach. A really big beach with firm sand to walk on- inviting until you step on an old can. The plastic...More

I went for three dips over five days. It blew onshore almost constantly which meant it was quite choppy. The best swimming appears to be at low tide. You don't need to rent a chair if you don't want to, we left t shirts and...More

A "French Resort" in SE Asia. Many of the places we visited in 1969 are still there. Many renovations and upgrades have taken place since. But the French style hotel and restaurant is still a treat. Lunch on an outside porch, overlooking the bay/beach made...More

I came too this place around 4pm and want to enjoy sunset while swimming, but unfortunately the beach is very crowded with people, and you can't enjoy it. The beach has white sand and long sand area.
