We just got here yesterday to end our hectic holiday in Vietnam. We are staying at LA veranda on long beach which itself has been a great resort so far. We spent all afternoon admiring the natural beauty of long beach... Until we decided to do a walk . as soon add you step off our property the beach is littered with plastic bags, bottles Styrofoam and all types of wrap. I saw a fish washed ashore with something stuck in its mouth. We did some research on pq before coming here and heard about trashproblems but pq being advertised as the next hot spot I thought most people were overreacting. We were sadly mistaken.
We were at hieu's family restaurant on the beach for lunch today and a tourist pulled about 10 kilos of trash into a pile as we were eating and he was waiting for his friends to finish up their massages
The trash simply ruins the natural beauty of this place. I'm surprised this problem isn't mentioned more on this board because I feel like we are wasting days here where we could have gone somewhere else. We aren't stay on the resort type people but here we dont want to find out how polluted the rest of the island is. I hope some locals here can give us the scoop.
