In Vung Tau City, apart from stunning beaches, admirable landscapes, museums and pagodas, tourists are advised to drop by the Lam Son Stadium just in town to experience thrilling moments at greyhound races on every Saturday night.

Held by Sports and Entertainment Services Company (SES) the game is attractive to both locals and visitors to the seaside resort town.

The company is organizing a greyhound competition called “Tet 2012 Cup” and the final round is slated for January 26, or the fourth of the first lunar month, with 32 dogs taking part. The award ceremony will also take place at the stadium, 15 Le Loi Street, on January 28.

Here are some snapshots taken by The Saigon Times Daily’s reporter Anh Quan at the qualifying round of the “Tet 2012 Cup” greyhound tournament on January 7.
