HCM CITY— The trip from Vũng Tàu City to Côn Đảo Island in the southern coastal province of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu will now take only three hours compared to the previous 13 hours of slower boats, thanks to a new high-speed boat service that began yesterday by Phú Quốc Express Joint-Stock Company.
The express 36 high-speed boat with capacity of nearly 600 passengers departs from Cầu Đá Port in Vũng Tàu City to Bến Đầm Port in Côn Đảo Island at 8am and returns at 1.30pm on the same day. The prices are from VNĐ660,000 to VNĐ1.2 million (US$28.4-51.6) per turn.
Between February 15 and 28, the company is offering a 20 per cent discount on the price.
The company also operates high-speed boat services in the Mekong Delta province of Kiên Giang from Rạch Giá City-Phú Quốc Island, Rạch Giá-Hòn Sơn Island, Rạch Giá-Nam Du Island, and Hà Tiên-Phú Quốc Island. — VNS
