If the bright lights and busy bars of Ho Chi Minh are getting to be too much for you, head to Vung Tau, Vietnam, for some sun, seafood, and karaoke. This seaside town is only a short bus ride away from Saigon and well worth the trip.

Vung Tau is very popular with the Vietnamese population, so if hanging out with locals, eating delicious street food, and singing karaoke is your thing, then you will feel right at home here. If you are heading to Vung Tau on the weekend, be prepared to be the only foreigner in town, on the plus side, the Vietnamese tourists are extremely friendly and will definitely want you as their new friend.

As it's a seaside city, at night the streets are lined with stalls and barbecues selling super fresh seafood at incredibly low prices. You will be spoiled for choice with the amount of variety, and at such affordable prices, nothing is out of your budget. After you are finished with your seafood feast you will find at least three karaoke bars on every street, so grab a Saigon beer and give your inner pop star a new lease on life. Things can go on quite late on the weekend, so be prepared and take earplugs for those early nights.

Most people are more than aware of the Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. However, very few people are aware that there is an equally, if not more impressive, version in Vung Tau. The statue stands at thirty-two meters, compared to its counterpart in Rio that stands at thirty meters tall. The statue is within a short walk of town; however, with tropical temperatures year round, be sure to carry a lot of water and wear sunscreen. Also as it's a religious site, make sure that you dress modestly -- make sure you have your knees and your shoulders covered, at least!

As far as hostels in Vung Tau, Vietnam go, plan ahead. As the city is generally geared towards the local population, not every Vung Tau, Vietnam hostel will speak your language. A quick web search will clue you into the English-speaking hostels in Vung Tau, Vietnam -- unless, of course, you can speak Vietnamese, and then Vung Tau is your oyster. Also, be sure to try some oysters while you are there.
