I'm pleased I went to the Cham Islands but I was a little disappointed. However it was very busy with Asian tourists due to the Lunar New Year holidays. Booked the tour with a local tour operator. Prices seem to vary yet everyone appears to do the same itinerary. I paid 500 000 VND which I felt was good value.... More

If you want to experience real Vietnam, real local people and habits, do yourself a favor and have yourself taken to the other side of the island to the clean, beautiful and untouched fishing village of Bai Huong. We experienced one of our best moments in Asia there, living in a homestay with one of the families who took us... More

We then took the speedboat to a beach to change and get ready for... More

Visited this lovely island on an overnight trip in June. If you take speed boat will take 30 mins to arrive if by wooden boat around 2 hours which I don't really recommend. The island is small but beautiful, locals are friendly. Beach and water very calm, crystal clear. Beautiful beach with white sand and palm tree. Nothing better after... More

I loved the island but be very careful which tour company you go with. Make sure all the details are agreed on and that the tour guide speaks english. We went with a tour company, we were promised 2 hours snorkelling, got 45 minutes, The masks did not fit properly and they were filthy. They were late for pick up... More

Walking the small island and visiting an ancient Pagoda and exploring the village was enchanting. We snorkelled the small coral reef and found blue anenmone, clown fish and angel fish and clams and many other assorted sea life. Cruised to a beach... More
