I loved Phu Quoc and Con Dao. I'd say Phu Quoc feels like a typical tourist destination, whereas Con Dao is more authentically Vietnamese, with an old-world charm.
One of the main reasons people visit Con Dao is for the opportunity to witness sea turtles. The Con Dao National Park offers various turtle tours, including egg layout and baby turtle hatching in summer.
It was only on my third visit to Vietnam that I learned about Con Dao Island, Vietnam's best-kept secret. Con Dao Island is about 80km (50 miles) off the Mekong Delta coast...
Hoi An is a unique Vietnamese city offering a full sensory experience. Day and night the world-famous Ancient Town is alive with exciting energy you won't find anywhere else in the world.
Ganh Dau Beach is a small quiet fishing village just north of Vinpearl Safari Park. The beach is small but there are a few restaurants and nearby islands to explore.
You cannot visit Phu Quoc without a trip to the famous Bai Sao (Sao Beach). In season, Sao Beach is a hive of activity with loads of tourists enjoying the pristine sand and blue water.
