Interesting Activities to Do at Night in Vung Tau

#1. Dog Racing

Have you ever participate in a dog racing competition? Well, Viet Fun Travel highly recommends tourist to try out this activity because its exciting atmosphere will keep your feet off the ground. The race will be more fierce and intense if you make a bet for a certain dog.
According to the locals, dogs used for dog racing competitions in Vung Tau are the greyhound. This genus runs really fast and can reach up to 60km per hour. The most popular place holding this awesome activity is Lam Son Stadium or Lam Son Dog Race Course (15 Le Loi Street).

Dog Racing

Bet “WIN” with your chosen fastest dog, “EXECTA” is for the second pick, and “TRIFECTA” is the last selection. Most participants go with the third level because it has the higher chance of winning than two remaining levels. If you don’t want to play, just view and cheer for the enthusiastic dogs.

#2. Fun ride with bike

You can choose to ride on either the tandem bike or electric bike.  For couples, we advise you to travel with a double-seat bike – this is such an interesting choice if you want to ride through the coastal paths together while feeling the fresh air and bustle of Vung Tau nightlife. You can rent this bike mostly along Tran Phu Street and Ha Long Street. It’s better to ask for the owner’s phone number so that you can contact in case of the broken bike.

If you want to capture more beautiful scenes of Vung Tau at night, Viet Fun Travel recommends you to use an electric bike which is leased along Thuy Van Street or in front of Bien Dong resort.  The electric bicycle comes with various different models to choose from: 3 seats, 7 seats, 10 seats, and 13 seats. Tourist can run with the route of 10km or 20km to the stops, such as Nirvana Vihara (Niet Ban Tinh Xa), Christ the King (Tuong Chua Dang Tay), etc.
