2. Travel by Hydrofoil:

There are 6-7 departures per day for route Ho Chi Minh to Vung Tau. The travel is definitely faster than by road, more relaxing, comfortable enough. . . . and you arrive relaxed at Vung Tau after having enjoyed a bit of fluvial landscape. Don’t be surprised when you leave Vung Tau, some hydrofoils leave at Cau Da, near the southern tip of the peninsula, other leave at Ben Dinh port, in the North of the city; no worries, you may go to Cau Da terminal, you can easily go to Ben Dinh by a bus.
