A life guard brought a flag to an area to warn people to stay away from whirlpools.
Pham Khac To, director of the Vung Tau Tourism Area Management Board, said whirlpools and rip currents usually appear in Vung Tau beaches around this time of the year along with high tides and large waves. Therefore, life guards must be on duty at all times to prevent possible accidents.
In the past two days, Vung Tau beach received more than 100,000 tourists.
“The number of visitors is higher compared to the same period of previous years before the pandemic and is expected to be even more crowded on Wednesday,” he said.
Vietnamese people are enjoying a seven-day Tet break from January 20 to 26.
