One of the smallest Vietnamese islands, Hon Ba Island represents a quaint place to visit and see the local way of life and the old buildings, as well as the clean beach.

One of those was built in 18th century, and it’s dedicated to a goddess protector of fishermen and sailors.

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.
