Binh Thuan camp site provides pristine path to paradise

Author:

Coco Beachcamp on La Gi Beach in Binh Thuan province is situated 180 kilometers to the east of Saigon, and offers visitors a back-to-nature experience.  

It takes just round four hours by car or motorbike to reach La Gi. If you want to take a coach, try Phuong Trang or An Thu. Both companies offer tickets from Saigon to Phan Thiet (tell the driver to let you off at Tran Quy Cap t-junction to catch a bus to Ham Tan) f


r around VND135,000 ($6). It costs VND25,000 more ($1) for the bus from the t-junction to La Gi.

Depending on your budget, you can try Princess D’ AnNam Resort & Spa for a luxury experience or the Saigon Suoi Nhum Resort for a more affordable but still well-equipped stay. However, there is a way of enjoying La Gi that is much closer to nature. Coco Beachcamp is a vibrant new site dedicated to young people judging by its vivid color scheme, so let's take a look and be charmed by its simple beauty.

Coco Beachcamp is an outdoor camp site with lines of colorful houses along the road. In the high season, the waiting time is up to two weeks.
