Day 1. Ho Chi Minh City to Vung Tau Arrival

The route from Ho Chi Minh to Vung Tau is around 150 kilometers and might take 2 to 3 hours to ride by motorbike.

If you opt for a motorbike, you can follow the National Highway 1A (QL1A). Then after the Dong Nai bridge is the Vung Tau roundabout. Now turn right along National Highway 51 and keep going straight.

Vung Tau city will welcome you after about 100 kilometers more. Now head to your accommodation and finish the check-in procedure. You should book in advance to avoid rooms sold-out in high seasons.

If you start riding from Ho Chi Minh City at 8 am, you may arrive at Vung Tau at 11 am. It will also take you some time to ride to the hotel and do the check-in, so you should take a rest until the afternoon.

After some rest, go for a sunset watching at Back Beach (Bai Sau Beach). Of course, the beach is unmissable regarding top motorbike routes in Vung Tau. The beach is spacious and clean, making it the perfect location for a lengthy run or stroll.

Day 2. Discovering time

On the second day, the very first place to visit can be the Christ of Vung Tau standing proudly on a high hill overlooking the city. Viewing the city from far above in the morning would be great. 

The 32-meter-tall stone structure resembles Rio de Janeiro's iconic Christ the Redeemer. Although the Vietnamese version is not nearly as stunning, it is still a wonderful sight.

From the Christ of Vung Tau, you can look over Woman's Island (Hon Ba). According to legend, a lady constructed a temple on this island in 1781 to worship the Sea Goddess. 

Because the male locals - the fisherman - always have to go to the far sea for fishing, all women here would come to the temple and pray for the safety of the fishermen. 

You can cross to the island on foot when the tires are low. However, watch out for the rocks while strolling on the island, which can be quite slippery.

You can end the second day by visiting Front Beach ( Bai Trout). After a long gone for these above spots, it is time for you to take a rest and enjoy the day on Front Beach. This section of the beach is somewhat smaller yet less crowded and chilled than Back Beach. 

There are also many fresh seafood restaurants, so seize the chance and immerse in Vung Tau cuisine. The menu can vary among restaurants, so you can ask for recommendations to enjoy your desired dishes. Todau could be the highlight of South Vietnam Motorbike Tours.

Day 3. Discovering time

But if you are on a tight budget, you can still stop by to enjoy the spa, pool, or restaurant. There are always services for non-guests so contact the resort to receive consultancy.
