Vung Tau by speed boat or better Phu Quoc by flight Saigon-PQ or Can Tho-PQ

Agree with post #1 - Vung Tau beach is the nearest from HCMC.

The weather in Vung Tau is at its best in January. If you want a quiet beach , head north of the hotel strip on the beach. Lots of good restaurants cafes and cheap hotels(or expensive).

You can get the ferry or bus from Hcmc . Its 69klms by river or 119klms by road.

Hi,

Vung Tau and Can Gio are two closest beaches from Hochiminh to get to.

You can ride a motorbike directly get there from Saigon center. It just takes 2.30 hours (high way) around 90km to Vung Tau and takes 2.45 hours around 80 km to Can Gio.

Hope this information is useful to you

===========================================

Have you actually swam at Can Gio? Its a muddy tidal flat, you have to walk out 400 metres in mud to get to knee deep.
