BA RIA – VUNG TAU — CNN has included the Con Dao Islands chain, located off Vung Tau City and 230km from HCM City, on a list of crowd-free Asian getaways.
In addition to diving, palm-shaded beaches and rainforest trails, tourists can see a variety of wildlife, including nesting sea turtles, CNN said.
Last month, New York-based Travel + Leisure magazine included Con Dao on a list of the best secret islands on Earth. In 2016, the islands made the Lonely Planet’s list of top 10 must-see places in Asia.
CNN’s list also included Cambodia’s Koh Rong, Malaysia’s Pangkor, Myanmar’s Lampi, the Philippines’ Palawan, Indonesia’s Raja Ampat and Samosir Island, and Thailand’s Koh Phayam. —VNS
