Not far off the promenade is the Tran Hung Dao monument which sits here as a tribute to this brilliant military strategist who defeated two Mongol invasions during the Tran Dynasty (1225 to 1440) and became a cultural hero among modern Vietnamese.
After an interesting and difficult lunch ordering process (due to language barrier) we enjoyed a long leisurely seafood lunch and a couple of Singha beers at one of the restaurants in town. Like a lot of restaurants in Asia, there were fish tanks at the entrance to the restaurant where you could select your own fresh live seafood and have it cooked to your taste.
After a day of seeing the sights of Vung Tau our cab driver for the day transported us back to the port and to our ship the Sapphire Princess. Vung Tau gave us another side to Vietnam which we found educational and interesting. We were all very happy to visit here instead of Ho Chi Minh City.
