VietNamNet BridgeOne of the most spectacular places in the country - Binh Chau Commune – can be reached by traveling some 150km from HCMC over rocky roads.

Locals feasting over egg-boiling natural wells developed by Saigon-Binh Chau-Ho Coc Eco-Tours Resort.

Situated in the mountains of southeastern Vietnam, the area is rich with forests and hot springs.

Vietnam’s tourism record indicates there are 70 visible thermal springs in the area forming a huge hot pot with valuable water and sedimentary mud and Binh Chau’s hot springs have even earned world recognition as one of 65 potential areas for sustainable eco-tourism development among 47 countries worldwide.

Legend describes the thermal springs as a hot water pot that the Vietnamese “Goddess of Boiling Water” spilled into the place out of anger, a story that stretches past beyond the footsteps created by visitors.

Even though the ride to Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province where Binh Chau Commune is located is long, the marvelous hot water pot of Saigon-Binh Chau – Ho Coc Eco Tours & Beach Resort eases any muscle tension caused by the journey.

One can enjoy a hot water bath at 37 degrees Celsius in a swimming pool, a hot mud bath, a foot bath at the natural hot spring area, or a swim at a white sand beach.

You can pamper yourself with a heavenly massage after a hot bath and when you get hungry there’s that 82 degrees Celsius egg-boiling natural well … within 15 minutes you can have well-done boiled eggs. However if you prefer, there are also restaurants at the resort.

Crocodile fish feeding, river fishing, billiards, tennis, volleyball, basketball, and badminton complete the adventure at Saigon-Binh Chau - Ho Coc Eco Tours & Beach Resort, and younger visitors can visit the children’s playground.

Saigon-Binh Chau - Ho Coc Eco Tours & Beach Resort, however, is just one of the places to enjoy Binh Chau Commune’s hot spring and beaches.
