    The hike up was a nice workout, but not too arduous. The view at the shoulder of the statue was well worth it. Note: tank tops are not allowed in the statue.

    Really enjoyed walking through the different themed rooms. Highlights for us included the Australian Armed forces as well as the medieval weapons. There are lots of guns, uniforms, medals and general information about each of the different periods. There is a small gift shop at the end where you can dress up in dress jackets for a small donation to a charity. Our daughter enjoyed this as she also had prop gun for the photo! The ice cream, freezes (frappe style) and juices went down a treat at the end. Worth the visit if you’re in Vung Tau and interested in military history. Being from the Northern Territory, Australia we found it interesting to see quite a few NT memorabilia.

    Vung Tau Lighthouse was a very important destination on our schedule. It is located on the top of Nho mountain (Tao Phung mountain). However, the sun was very hot and most of us forgot to bring our sun hats, so we had to take some motorbikes to go up there. Although the motorbike drivers looked very old, they drove around really fast. Despite not being able to climb the mountain with our own feet, we could feel the cool air and the gentle breeze on our faces while traveling on the motorbike. Upon arrival, I felt overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery of Vung Tau from above. The large, high-rise buildings, along with the clear blue sky and the calm sea, were all very stunning. I feel very jealous of the Vung Tau locals because I have always loved nature. In Hanoi, interactions between people and nature are very rare because Hanoi is the capital of the country, so it has to develop and exploit the surrounding nature and resources more. In the distance stands the statue of Lord Jesus along with Minh Dam mountain, both looking extremely great and impressive. Visiting the Vung Tau lighthouse is indeed a wise and highly recommended choice for tourists.

    Great and fun morning, Dannie showed us around, and how to pose for the best photo. She often took our photo too.

    This attraction is on 4 floors, with no lift, so is not suitable for those with severe mobility issues.

    It's all about perspectives. It's not your quiet, picturesque Southeast Asian beach, nor is the color of water comparable to those in Thailand. However, the sand is fine and soft to take a stroll on, the long coast line is perfect for a morning job. And if you are into cultures, you will be intrigued by the morning dancers and Vietnamese families on this fine beach, if you don't mind the crowd on the weekends.

    Great service and ontime departure from HO Chi Minh to Vung Tau. About a 2;30 minutes ride which was very smooth and comfortable.

    Beautiful beach area, clean sand, blue waters and all the facilities necessary for tourists to enjoy their time here. Sun lounges and umbrellas were already set up and waiting, boat operators' hopeful of getting a fare from our fellow excursionists. Monday was not the busiest, but we were told weekends are a packed house with revelers from Ho Chi Mihn City.

    Amazing view from Mary holding baby Jesus. However, don't go further up this side. 2 middle-aged men collapsed and 1 died the day before I did it. Apparently going up to see statue of Jesus on the other side is ok.

    I took a lot of pictures, the views are amazing. The roller coaster is also have less damage then the other parks. But some of the games are not suitable for people who are scared of heights. You could make some lovely bubble tea just in 2 ingredients: milk and tea for a great breakfast or you could make a cup of coffee. Ho May Park also has a pagoda, in the outside, you could see some famous heroes that helped Vietnam developed (from 938 to 1700s). The special thing the park has is its park is on the mountains; you could have a ride to the park by a transportation called "cáp treo". It only took several minutes. The only thing is the swimming pool isn't filtered the water and urine at all. And the floor is no good than other pools. But this park, combining with the hotel is great! Suitable for some people who wants to have a hotel that was out of the ordinary in Vung Tau! I can't wait to go to this park for the second time!

    Short stop here while on tour, our guide making many references to it as the 'bay of boats' although few were in evidence. Nice promenade, a park area, a few fishermen mending/preparing their nets, and a few stalls selling various snacks and drinks. Enjoyed a six pack of delicious pastries for the princely sum of AUD$1.

    The tide was too high so we did not cross the path. But even if the tide was lower, the path is very rocky.

    There’s nothing to see here except the memorial itself - so do your research and/or take a guide with you.

    However - it’s a well maintained memorial and atmospheric even if the battle site itself seems quite changed.

    We were touched to be there and combined the visit with a visit to the local tunnels which provided some additional historical layers.
