Biking Full day - HCM to Vung Tau Beach
History: During 14th and 15th centuries, the cape that would become Vũng Tàu was a swamp which European trading ships
The ships’ activities inspired the name Vũng Tàu, which means “anchorage”. The Portuguese navigators passed Vũng Tàu many times and named it after Saint Jacques(disambiguation needed).
The French invaded Vietnam afterwards and called it Cape Saint Jacques. The cliff of Vũng Tàu is now called Mũi Nghinh Phong (literally meaning “Cape of breeze welcome”).
Vũng Tàu was originally referred to as Tam Thắng (“Three Boats”) in memory of the first three villages in this area: Thắng Nhất, Thắng Nhị, Thắng Tam. It was within the province of Biên Hòa under the Nguyễn Dynasty. Under the reign of king Gia Long (1761–1820), when Malay pirates built a base here and subsequently became a danger to traders in Gia Dinh city, the king sent 3 troupes of army to crack down on the pirates. The pirates were ousted and soldiers of these troupes were given the land as a reward.
