Vung Tau Nightlife, Girls & Sex
The first real interest in the Vung Tau nightlife scene started back in the Vietnam War days when it was seen as a place for R&R, in that regard it shares a similar beginning to Pattaya in Thailand, but Vung Tau never really took off in the same way.
Today, as far as westerners are concerned, it is still seen as being a venue for getting drunk and meeting up with prostitutes, but tourists are relatively few in number.
If you want a serious lady, most Vietnamese women are happy to leave their own country to live with their soul-mates. They are feminine and sweet and on:

A big proportion of the westerners there are working on overseas contracts for the offshore oil and gas industry, and these tend to be guys with a lot of cash to spend.
Given that fact, you can probably guess that the prices asked by bar girls and other hookers in Vung Tau are not the lowest that you’ll find in Southeast Asia, especially when there’s a ship anchored in port!
The Red Parrot bar is a long-time favourite amongst the guys employed in the offshore oil and gas industry, but recent developments have provided many more bar options. The ladies working these bars are easy on the eye but, unless you want to compete with the purchasing power of some of the best paid workers in the world, I’d look elsewhere for your jollies!
The Vung Tau bay is attractive, but the beach is not the best.
One selling point about the place is that it is easy to get to. There is
a ferry that runs from Saigon to Vung Tau for less than $20 and gets
you there in under 2 hours, so it is useful as a place that you can
visit for a day or two if you feel like getting out of Saigon and
heading to the beach.
That said, the beach in Vung Tau is not one of the best that Vietnam has to offer, so that brings you right back to nightlife options I guess...
