How to get to Con Dao from Can Tho

Con Dao archipelago of Ba Ria – Vung Tau Province is a group of 16 islands Con Dao served as a prison island for political prisoners during the French colonial era, when it was known as Poulo Condore, then Saigon regime imprisoned opponents. The old prison buildings are still standing and are open to the public as is a small museum tracing the island’s history.

The Con Dao Islands separated from the mainland about 15,000 years ago. This has resulted in the development of dozens of undiscovered or undocumented species of wildlife. The entire archipelago falls under the oversight of the Con Dao National Park.

Nowadays, Con Dao island is known for the lovely romantic beaches and the beauty of the wild nature. Ranked fourth in the top 10 must-see places in Asia in 2016 by Lonely Planet magazine, the island has now become an international charming tourism destination for tourists worldwide.
