December 6, 2019On our first full day out of town trip, we decided to take it easy and more comfortable. We hired a car with driver for the day and headed out about 100 km (around 2 hours) from Ho Chi Minh City to Vung Tau. Vung Tau was once a French Colonial town, now a popular seaside resort for its many beaches. So glad we had a Fortuner car just for the two of us, but the driver speaks very little English. The drive was pretty basic, nothing too exciting. (Watch the video below).
Our first stop was at Suoi Nghe Sheep Hill. It's a vast, empty field with around a hundred sheep. There are no buildings, houses, and restaurants nearby. Only a few kiosks selling treats. There's a sheepherder who keeps the sheep together in a flock. It was our first time to see a flock of sheep, and it was pretty exciting. They will scamper all around you, especially if you're going to feed them. We spent about twenty minutes feeding and taking photos and video and then decided to get to the next destination because the weather was, however, not too supportive. It was excruciatingly hot that day.
There is no entrance fee here. You can stay as much as you like. This place is a bit out of the way. So, I suggest you rent a car or join a group tour. It is located at Suối Nghệ, Châu Đức District, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Vietnam.
