Con Dao – The Paradise Island

Con Dao was once known as the largest prison in Indochina before 1975 but nowaday Con Dao has become interesting sightseeing spot with beautiful beaches and Con Dao National Park. In addition, one thing that attracts tourists to this island is to explore historical landmarks as well as famous sacred places such as the Vo Thi Sau tomb, Hang Duong cemetery, Ba Phi Yen shrine, Van Son Tu pagoda, etc. Contact our website Sapa Tours if you want to book Con Dao tour.


The first time coming to Con Dao, you will be overwhelmed by the majestic nature of the blue sea, the forest, the sky and beautiful white sand beaches. Because the tourism services have not yet developed massively, the nature still retains its pure and pristine charms. Especially, the sea in Con Dao has many blue layers with different shades so just take a photo and you get great beautiful check-in picture. This will definitely be an unforgettable experience.


But the most special feature in Con Dao is the historical significance and spiritual value that is nowhere else to be found. Over hundreds of years used as a prison of war with so many people falling down, including the heroes of the nation, Con Dao becomes a spiritual land with many stories of its sacred traditions.  Therefore, Con Dao does not develop tourism in the direction of entertainment but tends to be more about culture, spirituality, relaxation and experience.

Rumor has it that if you are going to Con Dao, you are suggested to visit Co Sau’s tomb (heroine Vo Thi Sau) to burn incense praying for fortune, to Ba Phi Yen shrine to pray for love and to Van Son Tu pagoda to pray for peace and health. Those who have been blessed with wishes will come back to Con Dao to pay their gratitude. That’s why more and more tourists come here to convey their desires or simply to learn the thrilling history stories.


Con Dao can now be reached by ship or plane. You can fly directly from Ho Chi Minh City or Can Tho to Con Dao but in other provinces you have to go through two routes because there is no direct domestic flight. Therefore, air tickets to Con Dao are often full, difficult for self-booking. The best way is to book through reputable agents like Asia Charm Tours or choose a tour package; this is a very popular way nowaday.

Coming to Con Dao, you are not only fascinated with the beautiful natural scenery but also learn the history of forming a beautiful and peaceful island today. This is what makes the difference for Con Dao in the hearts of tourists.
