Teaching English in Vung Tau

At VUS we have TEFL jobs available throughout Vietnam. For example, one of our more peaceful locations is the city of Vung Tau in southern Vietnam.

The City of Vung Tau

Vũng Tàu is located in the south of Vietnam, situated at the tip of a small peninsula, and is home to over 350,000 people. It is a 2 hour journey south–east from Ho Chi Minh City which can be made by public transport, motorbike or hydrofoil (around 120min). It has traditionally been a significant port, particularly during Vietnam’s period of French rule. Today, the city’s importance as a shipping port has diminished, but it still plays a significant role in Vietnam’s offshore oil and tourism industry. 

Local Attractions

Vũng Tàu has over 20km of beaches, including Back Beach (Bãi Sau) and Front Beach (Bãi Trước), which are a favourite location for both tourists and locals where it is possible to view the sunrise and sunset. The city also provides historical and cultural appeal with sites such as Thich Ca Phat Dai, a religious pagoda located on the Big Mountain, the Statue of Jesus Christ, located on Small Mountain, and the Robert Taylor Museum of Worldwide Arms. 

Local Cuisine

It’s easy to imagine a coastal city being well known for fresh and delicious seafood, but Vung Tau is also home to many traditional food specialties such as Banh Knot, a small crispy pancake cooked with flour and coconut milk, Stingray Hot Pot, Lobster Blood, Oyster Porridge, and Vu Nang Snails to name a few. Vung Tau also has a night market that is considered a real “seafood kingdom” because it is easy to find anything you want, including quite rare species.
