Con Dao is an archipelago of 16 islands, each one more beautiful than the last. Preserving the pure nature of the islands, there are just a few hotels built on the island. Another asset that this archipelago offers is its national park with an intact ecosystem, it said.
Con Dao has pristine beauty, mostly unspoiled beaches, forests and turquoise waters, and a strictly-protected national park, home to an intact ecosystem.
Between March and September is the best time to visit the island as it has little rain and the sea is not rough, making it easier for goods to be transported from the mainland.
