  • 800 steps! Especially not to do by being dehydrated or tired. Access to the statue of Christ the Savior is rough.

  • It's that the climb up the Hill and have a beautiful view. Unless you're religious and perform this market for a personal reason, that's the view you are doing this activity

  • the 811 steps up the Hill, for most taken in several stages. Stop and enjoy the stunning views on the different levels. Bonus on top is a cannon from the war time.

  • In early morning, you ride your bicycle to the hill rest there and admire the sun goes up with the wave tap the sand. Sometimes in the year, seabirds soar under sun to the horizon. Fresh air, quite morning. To reach to Jesus Statue then to his shoulder (from narrow inner 100 spiral staircase steps, only allows if you are in proper cloth) you have to climb some 800 step (around 30 floors building) with no shade to protect you from the scorching sun. No worries, there are few rest in between.
  • One of the biggest Jesus statue in the world located here. There is a very strict rule to those who wish to go inside the Jesus statue. Don't try your luck to pass through...the man in the entrance will just shut you out. It's a long way to go up but totally worth it. Even didn't make it to the Jesus statue top, the view from the high is already spectacular.
  • A good 811 steps to the base of the statue (with several scenic stops along the way) and 133 to the shoulder of the statue. No one with shorts or short skirt or tank tops are allowed up from the base of the statue. People who are afraid of heights will have problem going up the base of the statue....... I heard the view is worth it.....
  • A must, climb the stairs to the top, take a bottle of water and enjoy the beautiful views and breeze. Then go inside the statue and enjoy 360 degree views of the bay and inland .
  • You can actually climb on top of the statue itself with appropriate clothing. Best view of the city

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.
