3. Catch the sunset
Stay on the west coast, facing the open seas of the Gulf of Thailand, and you’ll be treated to a spectacular show every evening. The beaches on this side are of the golden sand variety, and the glow of the fading sunlight on the wide strips of gold sand paired with the uninterrupted expanse of sky (on the east side you’re facing mainland Vietnam) is a real treat! Resorts like the Fusion Resort on Vung Bau Beach have bars designed and located just so you catch the sunset at its best angle.
