Tourists can hire a motorbike to discover the scenery and life of the local people on a 12 km road around Hon Lon Islet. From a height of 300 meters above the sea level, visitors can see the islets of different shapes and sizes under the blue sky of Nam Du. Along the coast are fishing villages, small houses nestled in green coconut trees. Nguyen Hue Linh is a tourist from Hanoi: “I love travelling and exploring new things. The first impression about Nam Du islands is the beautiful landscape with blue sea and green coconut trees. This makes Nam Du different from the others”.
Coming to Nam Du, it is impossible to miss Men beach, the most beautiful beach in the area. Men has sloping sand with lines of coconut trees, clear and peaceful sea. Ms. Bich Ty, a visitor from Ho Chi Minh City, said she escaped from the busy life and enjoyed the magnificent scenery here: “I am first impressed by Nam Du’s blue sea and greenness.

Ngang Islet is the most visited where visitors can explore fishing villages, go fishing and diving to contemplate the coral reefs. Walking on zigzagging paths lined with small houses, visitors mix with local life and try local specialties. Duong Thi Phuong is from Ho Chi Minh City: “This is the first time I come here. Unlike Nha Trang, a popular tourist site in Nam Du, you can live the life of locals and eat their fresh seafood. The islands are green and clean and the local people are friendly. This place is for those who want a down-to-earth experience”.
Mau Islet is another attractive site in Nam Du. Ly Thua Loi, a guide for a travel company in Ho Chi Minh City, said: “Mau islet is richly endowed by nature. Only 10 meters from the main road, we can see black stone sea bank and on one side white sand bank on the other side”.
