Vung Tao Fisherman, Vietnam 044

Originally uploaded by JoeDuck

Vung Tao is a popular harbor and beach resort area about 100k from Saigon. The trip was by Russian made hydrofoil and took about an hour and 15 minutes via the Saigon River which spills into the South China Sea at Vung Tao. Here, about 100 hotels – many big fancy resorts – cater to Vietnamese city folks escaping the heat and commotion.

We enjoyed a nice seafood lunch here including giant “shrimp” which tasted like lobster but were served with the common peppery salty lime sauce on the side. At $10 per mega shrimp this was the most expensive thing we’ve eaten and although it was tasty my rule of inverse food cost continues – the most delicious food has been the least expensive. Favorites after ten days: Lao Bo in Sa Dec, street Pho and street pork in Saigon.
