Detailed Itinerary

This is a 4 Days and 3 Nights tour.

Day 1
Hanoi/ Ho Chi Minh - Con Dao (D)
At about 8:00 AM, our tour guide will pick you up at your hotel. After that, you will be transferred to the airport for the flight to Con Dao Island. On arrival at Con Dao Airport or Ben Dam Port, a car will take you to the hotel/resort in Con Dao.

After completing the check-in procedure, you can take a short break before spending the rest time of the day on other free activities. You can either stay at your room to relax or go out for swimming, sunbathing and enjoy cool breezes in the island. Then you will savor an outdoor dinner under the starlight. 

Stay overnight at the hotel or resort and be prepared for the next day.
Day 2
Con Dao Island (B/L/D)
After having breakfast, you will embark on a tour to explore historical spots that create the notorious “Hell on the Earth”.

Con Dao Museum: This used to be the residence and workplace of island lords. When visiting this marvellous museum, you can broaden your knowledge about Con Dao history through myriads of artifacts, antiques, photos and documents preserved from the French colonial period.

Phu Hai Prison: This famous prison has marked the exile of thousands of communist soldiers. Here you may be told about legends of the Rice grinding Tunnel and Dark Compartment where brutal tortures have occurred.

Tiger cage system: Discover the system of French-style tiger cages which is solidly built, hidden among a labyrinth of inner and outer gates. Besides, you can visit the American-style tiger cages constituted by narrow and damp cells. 

Hang Duong Cemetery: This is the burial ground of thousands of Vietnamese revolutionary soldiers and patriots from 1862 to 1975. When coming to this cemetery, the tour guide will also introduce the grave of Heroine Vo Thi Sau as well as the story of her life to you.

After that, you can have a relaxing time at Dat Doc Beach. It is wonderful to swim in the cool waters or walk along the coast, apart from taking several photos of charming landscapes.

Your lunch and dinner will be served at a local restaurant. 
Day 3
Con Dao Island (B/L/D)
On your third day in Con Dao Island, you will get on a boat and head to Bay Canh Island - the second largest island out of 16 islands in Con Dao archipelago. The entire island is covered with primeval tropical forests, with a profound floral and fauna system. 

In your full-day trip on this island, there are two prominent activities that are worth a try, including trekking and snorkelling. Firstly, you will have an opportunity to go on a trek through mangrove forests to discover the mangrove ecosystem. For those who are into water sports, snorkelling to watch eye-popping coral reefs would be fantastic. As coral reefs here are diverse in both density and types, the experience will be more rewarding.
Day 4
Con Dao Island - Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh (B/L)
In the morning, you can make the most of your leisure time to go shopping, swimming or relaxing until the car comes. You will be taken to the airport for flight boarding to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. The tour ends.
