What to Expect
Admire The Beauty Of Back Beach

Welcome on dry land! Your private guide will be waiting for you at the port and will greet you with a welcome sign. Once we make our way to Vung Tau, our introduction to this pretty seaside city begins at Back Beach where will we 

walk along the coast with the sand between our toes. You are more than welcome to go in for a refreshing dip or to wander the length of the beach appreciating the sea breeze. We will then make our way to Mount Nho to snap photos of the famous Christ the King statue. This vantage point offers incredible views of the sea and Hon Ba, an islet with a beautiful temple worthy of a few photos!

Next Stop, Pagoda Of Nirvana

Vung Tau boasts the most Buddha statues in Vietnam, but the 

Pagoda of Nirvana, is certainly one of the most impressive. At 

12-metres high with a 21-metre flag tower, this statue is well worth the visit! Once we’ve taken all the photos we can, we’ll continue to a 

tranquil and picturesque park at Front Beach where we can enjoy the nature, sea breeze and interesting sculptures dotted around the park. This is where families spend lazy days, so you can get an 

insight into the way of life of the locals.

Enjoy Panoramic Views At White Palace

With our appetites worked up it is time to enjoy a 

local lunch at a famous seaside seafood restaurant. If you have any food allergies or special dietary requirements, please contact us beforehand and we can try our best to cater to your needs. With our bellies full, next stop is White Palace! Perched 50 metres up ‘Big Mountain’, 

White Palace is a 

beautiful colonial-era mansion once built for French Governor General Paul Doumer. As well as boasting the best panoramic views of the ocean, White Palace displays carefully-preserved antiques from the colonial era. A visit here is 

like stepping into a centuries-old time-capsule!

Last Stop, Whale Temple

The last leg of our trip involves making our way to the top of a hill on which a lighthouse perches. Built by the French, this lighthouse offers 360 degree vistas of the ocean and surrounding city. Definitely do not forget your cameras for this stop!

Then, we’ll make our way to Whale Temple, a popular stop with tourists and locals alike! This ornate temple is dedicated to the whale, and is the site where fishermen traditionally pray for their safety. This stop offers a fascinating insight into the belief systems of the locals here.

Unfortunately, we are at the end of our tour. Your English speaking guide will return you to port in plenty of time to make your cruise!
