Tourists will be able to travel to the island by high-speed boat, with round-trip tickets costing VND250,000 (about USD11) per person.

Located 30 km from the mainland, Con Co island, which crosses the 17th parallel, is considered an “outpost watch” due to its location.

Covering 2.3 square kilometres, it is one of the most magnificent islands of the central region with its diverse ecosystem.

Popular activities on the island include swimming, scuba-diving, canoeing, fishing and marine sports.

Tourists to Con Co can also visit the hall of tradition which houses items reflecting the history of the island district’s army and people over the past 55 years, pay tribute to Hill 37 Monument and visit Ben Nghe – Mom Ho beach./.
