The Vung Tau authorities want to turn the city’s most popular beach, Bai Sau (Back Beach), into an open area for public activities.

An area of 25 ha of the beach along Thuy Van Street will be developed into a complex that includes a park, an underground parking lot, a square, and shops serving snacks and drink, the city said in a new proposal.

If approved by Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province, the city will implement the plan in 2027.

It estimates the cost at VND2 trillion (US$83 million).

In April, Vung Tau City launched a campaign to clean up Bai Sau, removing all illegal makeshift stores and eateries to give back open space to beachgoers.

Located two hours southeast of HCMC, Ba Ria – Vung Tau attracted 7 million visitors in the first half this year, up 17% against the same period last year.
