Vung Tau is about 125 km from Saigon, around 2hrs driving. A popular weekend escape from HCMC, Vung Tau rocks at weekends when beach-starved locals and expats descend in numbers, but it is relatively quiet during the week. The city enjoys a spectacular location on a peninsula, with ocean on three sides; the light and sea air makes it a refreshing break from sultry Saigon.
