HCM CITY — The Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu Province’s Côn Đảo Island has been included on the list of the nine best paradise islands in the world this year by US magazine Vogue.
Côn Đảo is an archipelago of 16 islands, each one more beautiful than the last. Preserving the pure nature of the islands, there are just a few hotels built on the island. Another asset that this archipelago offers is its national park with an intact ecosystem, it said.
Côn Đảo has pristine beauty, mostly unspoiled beaches, forests and turquoise waters, and a strictly-protected national park, home to an intact ecosystem.
Between March and September is the best time to visit the island as it has little rain and the sea is not rough, making it easier for goods to be transported from the mainland.
From HCM City, the visitor can take a bus to get to Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu Province that will take about two hours. Or visitors can take high speed boat to Côn Đảo Island. It will take around four hours.
Another way to get Côn Đảo is from Sóc Trăng Province in the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta. Visitors can take a high speed boat to Côn Đảo Island which will take two and half hours.
From HCM City to Sóc Trăng Province, people can take a bus which will take about four to five hours. VNS
