As the south end of the town there is the ocean and there are two mountains there. Mountains Nui Lon (Large Mountain) and Nui Nho (Small Mountain) are sheer and impressive. Vung Tau was originally popular with the elite of Vietnam and the first hotel was built back in the 1870's. There was also a spa which catered for the French government officials and the highest ranking soldiers at the time. Now holiday homes have been built by people from Saigon. Vung Tau now features and modern hotels on its three main beaches. The town is also well known for its array of pagodas and temples, many of which lean against the mountains and face the ocean.

Some really great places to visit would be in Hanoi, My husband and I went there for a 5 night vacation, we stayed at the Hotel Nikko Hanoi and the hotel was very nice and the customer service was very friendly. They made sure that we had plenty of towels and that we was enjoying ourselves. This hotel was in the middle of most government offices and every time we went outside the streets was always full of traffic and lots of people that was coming and going. Aside from that we had a marvelous time there was some really lovely restaurants like the Green Tangerine which was a very romantic looking place you could order any type of French cuisine dish, or order some of Vietnam's favorite noodle dishes. I especially loved the tropical drinks. The food was expensive but you get more for your money.
