Tourist attractions in Vung Tau

Published:  04:39 Wednesday - April 24, 2013 Coming to Long Son fishing village, Ba Ria – Vung Tau province, tourists will have a chance to turn into a fishman, catch fish and enjoy fresh seafood.

After travelling more than 10 kilometers from Highway 51 to An Son island commune, the image of a small beautiful village floating in the water gradually emerges. The hot and muggy weather in the summer is replaced with the cool and fresh air.

In order to arrive at the fishing village, tourists have to spend 10 more minutes going by boat. The restaurants in Long Son village are impressive with cages being full of fish, shrimp and crab.

After giving the order, customers can directly choose seafood from these cages. There are both rustic dishes and specialties of the Southern Vietnam here such as: barnacle coming with mustard, fish grilled with pepper and salt, grill crab, crab torrefied with tamarind, Long Son crab, hot pot, steamed fish, etc. Girls in Vietnamese silk pajamas (“áo bà ba” in Vietnamese) with suntanned skin are very considerate toward customers. Therefore, customers feel close and friendly.


The village is not only famous for its delicious dishes but also interesting experiences. Tourists can turn into fishmen and catch fish in the estuary of Rang river. Catching fish here is not too difficult, tourists just need to drop iron cages into the river and wait until fishes fall into your trap.

The flocks of fish often gather near the fish cage in order to eat leftover food. Therefore, this estuary is an ideal place for people like fishing. 

Long Son fishing village is one of tourist attractions in Ba Ria – Vung Tau. It attracts thousands of visitors every month. However, not many people know that the fishing village was built by a poor and low educated fishman. That man is Mr Ly Buu Hoi. Although he now has become very rich, he is still simple and plain like other fishmen in the village. Everyone and every staff admire and love him due to his sociability and kindness.


Nowadays, Long Son fishing village has the area of more than 1,000 square meters. It can serve 800 customers and give jobs for a lot of young people in the region. If you have a chance to visit Long Son, do not forget enjoy the famous dried fish and barnacle here.
