On the second day of the holiday, tens of thousands of guests from Ho Chi Minh City and neighboring provinces flocked to Vung Tau City, with congested roads and expensive services.
At noon on April 10, the main roads of Binh Gia and Ba Thang Hai leading to the center of Vung Tau city were crowded with cars and motorbikes. Because the city forbids some roads leading to Bai Sau beach to organize sports tournaments, there are times when the traffic flow is long and congested at some intersections.
In the afternoon, the weather becomes cooler, the wind is light, the flow of people from the alleys of many hotels and motels cross Thuy Van Street to go down to the beach. Adults and children play on the sand and play in the waves. Many groups of young people played volleyball and swam away.
Lying to his friends to put sand on him, Quach Hong Quan (Thu Duc City) said that he and 5 family members came to Vung Tau this morning. They rented a three-bed room at a hotel in the alley of Phan Chu Trinh street. “On this occasion, the price of 900,000 VND for a three-bed room is also acceptable,” Quan said and said, intending to end the holiday tomorrow afternoon. The normal daily room rate is about 500,000 VND.
A few dozen meters away, Hoang Minh Phuong (34 years old) and a group of friends are packing to return to Binh Duong after a three-day trip. She brought an ice box to buy seafood for her family. “The seafood stalls on Hoang Hoa Tham street asked to buy crabs for more than 800,000 VND per kilogram, too expensive, so I didn’t buy them,” Phuong said, adding that she bought 2 kilograms of squid, one kilogram of snails, and two kilograms of octopus. She said the price is higher than the previous holiday from 40,000 to nearly 100,000 VND.
Mr. Pham Khac To, Director of Vung Tau City Center for Tourist Management and Support, said that in 2 holidays, Vung Tau beaches had more than 58,000 tourists swimming, 37,000 people today alone; saved 9 people who fell into vortex ponds, currents, swept away from shore by waves; Help find 4 lost children while bathing and hand them over to their families.
