Vung Tau: Love to return home as a memory rushing by

Vung Tau - a beautiful coastal city where tourists are charmed with shore-tapping waves, with line of green coconut trees and with long white sand beaches. It is also a homeland to me where I always love to return.

Vung Tau - a beautiful coastal city where tourists are charmed with shore-tapping waves

“My hometown - My childhood” …

Vung Tau- a beautiful coastal city where tourists are charmed with shore-tapping waves, with line of green coconut trees and with long white sand beaches. It is also a homeland to me where I always love to return, especially when I am somewhere in Saigon or Hanoi- tired of pressure from the city life. A memory brought me back to my own old house where my father was sitting at is porch, where my mother was busy with her kitchen work in an evening… memories and memories rushing back. Oh my Vung Tau, oh my beautiful old time…

Hear bustling sounds at Ben Da when boats returning with their catching from off-shore…

It seems that any coastal city has its own charms and so is Vung Tau: white long sand beach; small caressing waves; sun dusks over lines of leaning coconut trees along boulevards of Ha Long and Thuy Van.

Although the peaceful land were chosen as a residence since the first century-BC. But it was only crowded from the 16th or 17th century where people from Thuan - Quang immigrated here. During the French colonial period, the protectorate government built many ports, thermal power plants and hotels. Vung Tau were chosen to be the largest tourism city of South Vietnam. And at the beginning of the 20th century, my ancestors settled down here after their long journey southward.

The land is where I was born. So its dirt road, its tropical fruit garden on the sides of Nui Lon, and Nui Nho have become sweet pieces of memory in my heart. I was proud of my ancestors who also contributed in the history of the land. Many times when I went back to Vung Tau to see the old house crouching at the foot of the mountain, to see sea breezes lightly shaking the row of Queen crepe myrtle in front of the house, to hear the church bells humming, to hear bustling sounds at Ben Da when boats returning with their catching from off-shore…

I cannot forget stories from my father and I am proud of monuments and sceneries that I have experienced in my own homeland.

Statue of christ the king - Benevolent and epiphany

The statue of Christ the King is located on the top of Nui Nho- a towering statue with the two arms outstretched; the benevolent face facing the sea.

It is said that the building of the statue underwent a lot of difficulties. At the early 1970s of the 20th century, the parish of Vung Tau had a plan to build a 10-m statue of Jesus with the pedestal of 5 meters high on Nghinh Phong - O Quan cape. The work started in 1972, but it interrupted in January, 1973 because the land was under the management of the Buddhist Sangha. In 1974, the Catholic Church had it rebuilt on the top of Nui Nho, and the work interrupted in 1975 due to the country’s changes. The work started again in 1992 and finally completed in 1994.

The statue of Christ the King in Vung Tau is the largest statue of Jesus in Vietnam - a spiritual symbol and a tourist attraction as well. I have climbed up 133 steps and had a look at Nui Lon, Bai Sau, Bai Dua, Bai Chi Linh, Bau Sen and Bau Trung from the outstretched arm for many times in my young age. How I love my beautiful homeland!

… The city of tourism and resort

The nature favorably gave Vung Tau many beautiful beaches, in which the most famous ones are Bai Truoc and Bai Sau - tourism - resort places for a long time.

Vung Tau - The city of tourism and resort

Bai Truoc - also called Tam Duong Beach - where there are lines of coconut trees along the beach. The arc-shaped beach has a little waves as a peaceful cove.

Anytime not matter when it is dawn or dusk, our minds are always relaxed and peaceful at the place.

Bai Sau, so called Thuy Van (or Thuy Duong Beach) is located South of Vung Tau. It has a length of dozens of kilometers - a beautiful long - stretch beach not only of Vung Tau but also of Vietnam.

Anytime not matter when it is dawn or dusk, our minds are always relaxed and peaceful at the place.

Unexpectedly, the melody of once a famous song “Love Song of Vung Tau” composed by late musician Hoang Van with Nha Phuong’s voice resonated inside my mind:

I ride a bike every afternoon

Coasting downhill in Ben Da

You’re like a big mountain

I’m like a small one

Bai Truoc (Front Beach) and Bai Sau (Back Beach)

Forever together

(chanting) La la la la la

La la la la la la

La la la la

My love is like ocean

My heart is an oil field

Love you dearly

Love you dearly.

These are the lyrics that my grandparent often recalls “Vung Tau’s love song”, “Vung Tau, the sea’s singing…”. During the 1980s, my parents as a married couple always went to a local youth cultural house to engage in letters and arts activities. I’m just thinking that Vung Tau today is beautiful, in the past it was beautiful, three or four decades ago when my parents were young, it was also beautiful and romantic...

Oh my beloved Vung Tau, only a flick of memory flashing back.

Con Dao - a legendary homeland

The epidemic of COVID-19 passed and left behind people with pale faces and empty shabby streets. The wound will gradually be healed and streets will be busy and bustling again. Although the tourism sector has been back to its operations, people are not yet eager for trips and adventures. Tourist cities have still been quiet and empty and so has Con Dao been… The island is still staying offshore waiting…
