Three hours by bus from Ho Chi Minh city, La Gi is a District-level town of Bình Thuận Province. The area is also known as the "Vietnamese Riviera" due to its beautiful beaches and resorts and it connects all the way to the beaches of Phan Thiet a further 25km up along the coast. While the growing number of foreign visitors lay in the sun to enjoy the high life, it is interesting to look at the daily life of the local residents.
