HCM CITY – The Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu Province’s Côn Đảo Island has been included on a list of the nine best paradise islands in the world to escape to this year by Vogue magazine.
Côn Đảo is an archipelago of 16 islands, each one more beautiful than the last. Preserving the pure nature of the islands, there are only a few hotels built on the island. Another asset that this archipelago offers is its national park with an intact ecosystem, Vogue said.
Con Dao has pristine beauty, mostly unspoiled beaches, forests and turquoise waters, and a strictly-protected national park.
Between March and September is the best time to visit the island as it has little rain and the sea is more "obedient", making it easier for goods to be transported from the mainland.
From HCM City, visitors can take a bus to Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu Province or Sóc Trăng Province in the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta. It will take about two to four hours, and then a high-speed boat to Côn Đảo Island will take about four hours. Or, visitors can save time by taking a flight from Vung Tau to HCM City, which will take an hour. – VNS
