The famous website Thrillist has listed Ho Coc Beach in Vietnam’s southern coastal province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau among the 12 most unbelievably cheap paradises on earth.

Ranked the 8th place, the beach is a very small beach community with tight-knit locals, the website said.

Visitors can take tours through its 11,000-hectare tropical forest or go snorkeling in its tropical reefs or just enjoy being on a beach that's near deserted on weekdays, said the magazine.

The list of top 12 also includes Avarua of Cook Islands, Cesky Krumlov of the Czech Republic, Koh Tonsay of Cambodia, Guanajuato of Mexico, Pearl Islands of Panama, Agonda Beach in Goa of India, Veliko Tarnovo of Bulgaria, Hainan Island of China, Ksamil Beach of Albania, Iquitos of Peru, and Las Trancas of Chile.-VNA
