About Côn Đảo

A beautiful picturesque island located off the southeast coast of Vietnam, Côn Đảo is a tropical escape. It is popular among locals, but not yet bustling with tourists. The islands have a forested area of over 80%, which serves as a home to exotic wildlife, dugongs (sea cows) and sea turtles. However, Côn Đảo has a dark past. Tens of thousands of political prisoners were held on these islands for over a 100 years making it a hub of rebellion and independent activists. Many prisoners died on the island as a result of mistreatment. Their remains were collected and buried together in Hang Duong Cemetery. The tropical environment is the future of Côn Đảo, but the dark past is a part of the island that has shaped its character.Best Time To Visit: February to OctoberHow To Reach: Take a flight to Ho Chi Minh City costing around Rs. 18,000 for a return ticket, and then another flight to Côn Đảo which will cost around Rs. 14,000 round trip.Things To Do: There are several marked treks that enthusiasts can do to explore the mountainous terrains of the island; this island is the best site for diving and snorkelling in Vietnam; people who wish to see the dark past of Vietnam can visit the prisons and cemetery; from June to September you can also see sea turtles laying eggs on various beaches on the island.
