I am living and working in Vietnam already 5 years, 4 of them in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). During this time I was traveling through all the country many times. I am crazy about surfing and I was traveling with my surf board and visited almost all possible surf spots in Vietnam.
I have been in Hai Phong, Hue, Da Nang, Quang Ngay, Dung Quat, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Pham Rang, Mui Ne, Kien Giang and many other. All these places are amazing, have sea and have something to see, but for real surfing lovers, for my opinion, only Da Nang (China Beach) and Vung Tau (Back Beach) are perfect for surfing. And, if to take into consideration that Vung Tau is just 90 km far from Ho Chi Minh City (1 hour 30 minutes by ferry boat), and that Vungtau in comparison with Danang have fully equipped surfing center I am sure "Back Beach" is the best surfing spot in Vietnam.
