Con Dao

Da Wikitravel.

Con Dao is an island off the southern coast of Vietnam.

Understand[Modifica sezione]

Con Dao served as a prison island for political prisoners during the French colonial era, when it was known as Poulo Condore, and in later years the Saigon regime imprisoned opponents of the regime in the infamous cells known as the "tiger cages". The old prison buildings are still standing and are open to the public as is a small museum tracing the island's history.

Besides having an interesting history, Con Dao is also an island of immense natural beauty with forested hills, deserted sandy beaches and extensive coral reefs making for some excellent diving.

There is a weekly(?) helicopter service from Vung Tau (1 hour on the boat from HCMC, as well as a regular (frequency?) fixed wing service from HCMC airport.

There are 2 points worth noting about these services:

  • The airport on Con Dao is a long way from anything much else, so, arrange a hotel before you get there and get them to pick you up.
  • Both of these air services only allow 10kg free baggage (although excess baggage is pretty cheap by international standards).
