[Photos} Take a Day Trip to Vung Tau Half a Century Ago

 I recognize many of the places and we stayed at the Grand Hotel for our honeymoon.
I have many pictures  which I'll post later.

For some residents from Saigon and other southern provinces, Vung Tau has always been a sleepy tourist town that’s perfect for a weekend away, but not much else. However, if these photos of the town in the late 1960s are any indication, Vung Tau also had a vibrant local life that’s usually hidden away from the eyes of tourists.

The collection of images, compiled by our favorite Flickr archivist, manhhai, was taken in 1967-1968 by an anonymous author, showing vintage hotels, beachside cafés and scores of interesting modernist buildings.

Take a trip down memory lane with these photos of Vung Tau half a century ago:
