Christ of Vung Tau, Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province

4.1
#3 of 18 in Sightseeing in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province
Landmark Tourist Spot
Admire the architectural determination of religion at Christ of Vung Tau. Completed in 1993 by the Vietnam Catholic Association, the object rises to be 32 m (105 ft) with a 4 m (13 ft) platform, making it an astonishing 36 m (118 ft) tall statue. See the outstretches welcoming arms that go 18.3 m (60 ft) from fingertip to fingertip and admire the skill it took to build it. Climb to the top to enjoy the scenic view of the city as you enjoy the fresh breeze at the top. Modest clothing is recommended since the place is a holy for many people.

Where to stay in Vung Tau

Most of the accommodations of Vung Tau, you won't be surprised to learn, sit by the beaches. Choose from densely populated areas of budget-friendly hotels and guesthouses, as well as more spacious stretches where large resorts and luxury hotels sit. Search all around the peninsula for the style and price that suits, as nothing here is very far away from the main attraction. Even visitors that stay a bit inland may end up with a place to be proud of, with French colonial hotels set back from the sea.
