The different types of seafood
The seaside city of Vung Tau is not known to house any mosques or Islamic Centres, which means that Muslims visiting the Tran Phu Fish Market will not be able to find any prayer facilities here. Muslim tourists will therefore have to return to their hotel rooms at prayer times.
Muslims looking for Halal restaurants in Vung Tau will find it very difficult, as there are only about one or two such establishments in the city. If unable to find any, Muslim tourists can dine at one of the numerous seafood restaurants in the city. As mentioned above, they can even personally select the type of seafood they would like to dine on, and then get it prepared at a restaurant.
