Dong Chau is also a heaven for food lovers to explore numerous specialty dishes like nhech salad, fermented jellyfish, jellyfish salad, Quynh Coi fish soup, Cay cake, nem chao Vi Thuy, bun bung, Bo guava, banh gai Dai Dong, banh gio Ben Hiep, banh nghe, etc.
It is advisable to visit Dong Chau beach anytime between July and September as the temperature is rather hot and hence ideal for outdoor activities. If you want to take pictures, do not miss the sunrise and sunset because the sun looks bigger and the air looks clearer in Dong Chau than anywhere else you might have seen.
A flycam is a must-have for photographers and a mosquito repellent cream should come in handy if you plan to stay outside overnight. Anyone who wants to escape the hectic city life and take a rest at a quiet place should relish the tranquil ambiance of Dong Chau beach.
