Beach Recommendation from HCMC
8th June, 2010
We are going to be coming into HCMC and doing a bit of traveling in Southern Vietnam before moving on to Cambodia. We'd like to do at least 1 short trip (couple of days) to a beach, but can't figure out or decide what would be best. Any recommendations? And how much travel time can we count on to get there? Thanks!

What time of year? That will be the main determinant in heading north or south.

Vung Tau is approximately 130KM SOutheast of HCMC. That is where I arrived today. Im staying on the Back beach where there is no sand, but there is sand apparently on the Front beach..I haven't been over there yet, but I will tomorrow. I didn't come here from HCMC, but from Nha Trang ...I bought a motorbike in Hanoi and have been riding down. If you can make it to Nha Trang I would definitely go, I had a blast there!

Vung Tau is the nearest beach to HCMC but go a little further to Mui Ne which is a lot more fun and only under 5 hours by train.

Mui ne bay is about 20mins by bus from Phan Thiet and a 3hour drive from Ho Chi Minh city.It has fabulous stretches of white sand, a scenic landscape and lovely locals

Mui ne has good beaches but is a quiet place.Nha Trang has good beaches both north and south of the main beach and has plenty to do day and night.
November you can expect some rain but you will still get beach time in and it's never cold.

Rain may be less in the north but keep in mind:
- North doesn't have that many beaches
- North will be colder anyway being fall/winter. That also goes for the water
Central vietnam (Hoi An, Danang) would be ok, as would Mui ne or Nha Trang be. Although a bit of rain might be difficult to avoid anywhere.
Southern vietnam has some good beaches at Phu Quoc.
Phu Quoc would probably be your best bet weatherwise in Vietnam in November.
