Alternative beach destinations:

Con Dao Island:

Con Son, about 140km off the coast in the South China Sea , is the largest of a 15-island archipelago most of which is included in a National park and marine reserve. Con Dao is a relatively new destination with minimal infrastructure – only one hotel at mid-range standard and nothing above. The small town and harbour is interesting but, apart from the natural environment, the only attraction is Con Son’s long history as prison colony. The prisons, cell blocks and torture chambers are retained as a museum.

The islands and marine area are rich in bio-diversity, much of which has yet to be explored. Snorkelling and diving around the islands and coral areas are available. We’ll arrange a local guide ensure that you see the best of Con Dao’s pristine flora, wildlife and wide range of aquatic species.

If you want to get off the usual tourist trail and don’t mind roughing it, this should suit you.

Phu Quoc Island:

Phu Quoc is the Vietnam ‘s largest island. Located in the Gulf of Thailand , has a wide variety of beaches, some regarded as the best in Vietnam . It’s recently been ‘discovered’, so there’s plenty of development in the tourist area. However, you don’t need to travel far to find seclusion.

Infrastructure is improving, but most roads are rough tracks. There’s plenty of accommodation, but nothing above Superior standard. That said, some of the smaller resorts offer comfortable tree-shaded chalets on the beach and friendly service. Duong Dong, the main town, is interesting with plenty of restaurants. Diving and snorkelling are available as well as hiking, cycling and similar activities.

Phu Quoc provides a good beach holiday with a range of activities if required.
