There are a couple of interesting ways to while away the time in Vung Tau.

Watersports

Other than hiking on top of the hills of Nui Lon or Nui Nho, you can head to Ocean Park (daily 6.30am-5.30pm; free), which occupies a 700m beach frontage on Bai Sau, rents out watersports equipment, offers beach games, lifeguards, showers and a smart restaurant.

Greyhound racing

If you enjoy a flutter and are in town on a Saturday night, head for the Lam Son Stadium at15 Le Loi, Vietnam’s only venue for greyhound racing.

Golf

The Paradise golf course (t 064 382 3366) is a decent eighteen-hole range off Bai San; a round will cost about $95, including caddy.
