Luxury Tour Operator Unveils Private Day Trip to Vung Tau Beach from Saigon Every Day
Saigon, Vietnam, August 23, 2012 - Luxury Tour Operator (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com ) Unveils Private Day Trip to Vung Tau Beach from Saigon Every Day
Vung Tau, located at about 125 kilometers to the southeast of Ho Chi Minh City, was known as Cap Saint-Jacques under French occupation. Among Vietnamese and expatriates, it is a popular beach destination for weekend trips.
“Travelers can reach Vung Tau by speedboat, car or helicopter from Ho Chi Minh City. Vung Tau is a busy coast city with a few beaches, an attractive summer palace, a couple of interesting temples, a few other attractions and not much else, so it offers enough to do but nevertheless offers an off the beaten path and low key escape. However, luxury properties, casinos and golf courses are set to open soon, in order attract long stay, high end holidaymakers to both the Ho Tram area and Vung Tau. Twenty kilometers from the city center is Long Hai town, once a fishing village and now a small resort popular with Vietnamese people. Vung Tau is also the place to board a boat, plane or helicopter to visit famous Con Dao Island, 180 kilometers away.” said Pham Ha, CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.
For a day trip from Ho Chi Minh City, travelers will discover the best Vung Tau has to offer.
At 07:30, travelers will be picked up from the hotel in HCMC and driven to Vung Tau, traveling by immense rubber and cashew nut plantations, as well as scenic rice fields.
On the way to Vung Tau, travelers will visit the Large House (Nha Lon) and its temples at Long Son Island. Large House is a place to celebrate festivals, with a school, a market, a Ghe Sam preserving house, and Ong Tran’s graveyard.
Arriving in Vung Tau, the capital of Ba Ria Vung Tau Province, travelers will visit the White House Palace (a summer residence of the last emperor Bao Dai), offering a wonderful view of thebeach and the city.
Travelers will visit Niet Ban Tinh Xa, Nirvana Meditation Retreat and Thich Ca Phat Dai, a Buddhist shrine. They will also visit a French-built light house and the giant Jesus Christ image as optional choices.
Vacationers will have lunch at Lan Rung restaurant then have swim at the Bai Sau Beach. At 4 pm travelers will drive back to Saigon where they arrive at around 6 pm.
“Vung Tau preserves the feel of a harmonious community of religions, mountains, beaches, architecture old and news. It is now a favourite weekend beach escape destination for family vacations from Ho Chi Minh City. This short trip has all the best Vung Tau has to offer.” adds Pham Ha.
The tour price starts from US$82 per person for a private party of two people. Price includes all private pick up and drop off services, transportation from Ho Chi Minh City, meals, entrance fees and the services of an English-speaking guide. This offer is valid until 30 December 2013.

A new executive order signed by Gov. Nathan Deal in Georgia will ensure that the region’s forests are certified as ‘green’ in a move that has been praised by FRA.
Bainbridge Island, WA, August 23, 2012 - A new executive order signed by Gov. Nathan Deal in Georgia will ensure that the region’s forests are certified as ‘green’ in a move that has been praised by Forestry Research Associates (FRA).
The signing of the order is also intended to help the region boost the number of new buildings that are awarded LEED green building certification. The move will expand the definition of sustainable timber to include timber form forests certified under the American tree Farm System and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Until now, only buildings made from timber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council could be eligible for LEED green building certification under the US Green Building Council.
As well as being supported by FRA, which advocates sustainable forestry in all its forms, the move has also won praise from the Georgia Forestry Association. The Association’s president, Steve McWilliams, said, “The governor has taken what I think is quite a stand for thousands of private timberland owners in the state by saying that we’re not going to let our wood be devalued by a policy wherein the end result of the quality of the product that goes into the building is substantially the same.”
FRA agrees that timber from forestry that has been managed sustainably should always be used as a preference to timber that has been sourced from non-sustainable sources. It also agrees that sustainability should not just be limited to FSC certification and that green building policies should be opened up to allow for other accreditation systems, such as those held by many of Georgia’s forests.
“Sustainability should not just mean ‘FSC-accredited’”, stated FRA’s analysis partner, Peter Collins. He added, “Any timber from forestry that is managed sustainable, through managed plantations such as those operated by Greenwood Management in Brazil and Canada, for example, should be usable in green construction projects.
